I'm not impressed by Shelestyuk honestly, not sure what the hype is about. The other guys are looking very good though.

The way Shelestyuk took out Flores was impressive, that's a fact.

Hope the instability of Ukrainian government does not interfere with their success. Do not forget, The Klitschkos are Ukrainian, although Vitali has retired, Vlad will keep winning until he retires...........

Good luck to Lomachenko Saturday night, he can win this fight..............

Ukraine were only the top nation in boxing for the 2011 world championships. Once there top fighters turned pro they only managed one bronze in the 2013 world amatuer championship, id rate Cuba, Russia and Kazakhstan above them as they deliver more on a regular bases

Il give you that them two did get robbed, but the only two fighters they were missing for the 20013 WC were Ishchenko and Berinchyk and i wouldnt have fancied Ishchenko to get a medel so calling it their C team is being very liberal with words. Ukraine dont have the strength in depth of say Cuba or Russia. Look at Russia Mekhontsev went pro and the had a 2 time european champion to replace him in Ivanov. Beterbeiv went pro and his replaced by someone just as good if not better in Tishchenko and they still have Egorov as back up.

Even at the 2013 european championships Ukraine only finished 3rd

Arkhypenko - don't know
Poyatsyka- injured
Gvozdyk - injured
B.Shelestyuk - injured
Berinchyk - is m.i.a. apparently
Ishchenko - chose not to go
HW - not allowed to compete because 1 and 2 were injured and replacement wasn't registered with AIBA in time.

!!!



Plevako got to the quarter finals and he was Ukraine's 3rd choice super heavyweight

Gvozdyk - olympic bronze medalist
Berinchyk - Olympic silver, world championship silver
Poyatsyka- european gold & bronze
Ischenko - european gold
Bogdan Shelestyuk- european bronze
Only Ishchenko and Berinchyk would have had a realistic chance of winning medels out of all of them and Gvozdyk has gone pro

I agree that the Russians have more strength in depth, but Ukraine do have good strength in depth themselves.
Just look at the middleweights Ukraine have had the last few years for example .. Khytrov, Dervychenko, Mytrofanov, Golub.
Ganzulia will be replacing Gvozdyk at light heavyweight
Vykhurst is coming up at super heavy. etc
Who were they missing at the europeans apart from Gvozdyk?

at middleweight they do have good strength in depth but Mytrofanov ,Khytrov's replacement didnt medel at WC 2013. Also Ganzulia isnt as good as Gvozdyk is. The Ukrainian team that had Lomachenko,Butsenko,
Berinchyk ,Shelestyuk,Khytrov, Gvozdyk and Usyk was the strongest in world boxing for a two year period it was a golden generation. But now id put Kazakhstan,Cuba and Russia ahead of Ukraine and you could argue that some other countries are on par to. I dont argue that Ukraine is one o the strongest amateur boxing nations in the world what i was not agreeing with is when someone said they are the best, they arent at this moment

Not a takeover but i'm just happy to see almost all the top guys turning pro now and getting oppertunities to sign with big promoters and get on US TV. A few weeks ago Berinchyk said Top Rank offered him a contract but he's waiting until the WSB season is over and will make a decision in the summer.

I have been impressed with LHW Ganzulja he did give La Cruz a very competitive fight at Worlds.
