Selby beats Yafai, he's class, while Yafai's beating up bums, Selby's fighting the worlds elite amateurs & making it look easy

Luke Campbell's much better than Murray


All the rest lose to the 08 team

david price is the only real talent from 2008, the rest of them have european level skills, they do nothing outstanding, BJS gets bummed like he's the next great middleweight he was saved prematurely against, nick blackwell.

The 2008 team may look alot better because people have seen alot more of them as proffesionals and they will have improved, where as the 2012 team are unproven on the proffesional level and are still learning, hard to say. I'm swaying towards the 08 team and it'd be close but i could change my mind in the future.

Far too early to say if you are talking about pro ranks because we haven't even seen any of the 12 squad in a pro fight yet

I reckon it would be 4(Gavin,BJS, DeGale & Price)-3 (Selby,Campbell & Stalker) to the 08 team.

Selby looks the most promising of all of them imo.

Anybody noticed some of the US olympians have had a few pro fights already? Dominic Breazeale 3-0-0 (3KO), Terrell Gausha 2-0-0 (2KO), Errol Spence 3-0-0 (3KO) & Rau'shee ****** 2-0-0 (0KO) all promoted by Al Haymon, weird how so many non-medallists would turn pro and so many medallists would stay amateur.

Errol Spence is a beast, the kid can really bang.

The US amateur dont recieve the same levels of support that our lads do. All our Olympians GB contracts dont expire until April/May so we might see a few turn pro.

IMO I thought he was quite poor considering all the hype

Errol Spence is the next big thing, crazy how he didn't get a medal.
