No argument from me.

Expect ward to avoid him like the plague. Dawson will fight him though, I'd like to see that.

So what's not to love?
You're right about Kovalev, but you're dead wrong about Wilder. He's just another American hypejob who will never amount to anything.

Campillo is one of the best 175lb fighters. But he is also one of the weaker chinned at the top of the division.

Kovalev is exciting. I hope he gets his chance against the elite

Kovalev is a good fighter and the way he ran over Campillo was impressive, he's probably a top 5-6 light heavy right now.

I'd still like to see how he does against some of the other top light heavies though. 175 isn't the deepest division but there is some talent there. I'd like to see him against Cloud or Pascal. Hopkins would be interesting and I think Dawson beats him.

I don't think he gets one of those guys yet but someone like Shumenov or Chilemba could be possible and pretty interesting.

I need to see him do more before I anoint him the second coming. He needs to fight Pascal or Cloud if he beats one of them he will get full props from me.

savior of the division? Hyperbole.

yes, he scored a very good win against a solid contender who frankly didn't look like himself from before the fight even happened. Nevertheless, he looked dangerous, but the statement about him being the jesus of the division, until he tangles with and defeats the elite, like hopkins, pascal, dawson or cloud, is all talk. until then, you're jumping the gun and/or riding dick, like you always tend to do when dealing with fighters from the former soviet union.
