Default Where does Ustinov go from here?

I would hate to seem him spoil this momentum, and sit on the sidelines for another 8 months. He's in great shape for the first time in years, and by all accounts held his own against Chisora is sparring. This man deserves a fairly high profile fight, maybe Thompson or Solis?

Ustinov is no chump.... Not elite by any means, but he's a solid fringe contender who has the attributes to trouble and beat a few guys ranked in the top 20-30. Thompson or Solis are both winnable fights for him, especially Solis.

How do you rate him? I think he's definitely top 30, top 20 if he gets the right fights.

He's got a real chance to put himself amongst the contenders, after last week. I'd say at least one high profile win and he'd be a legitimate one.

Lucas Browne would fight him, that would be an entertaining slugfest.

Ustinov essentially scared Fury into pulling out of a fight. The perception is that he's won the equivalent of a great victory. His stock has definitely risen as a result.

I would love to see Ustinov in the ring with Fury, but I sense that may never happen.

I think ironically, despite Ustinov's lack of pedigree, this would be a good fight for Wlad, as Wlad (unfairly) is sometimes accused of not taking on fighters with size and power.

But I thought Ustinov worked for the Klits? Is he under different promotion these day?

Still promoted by K2. I think he should fight Ortiz for the #1 spot now.
