Vasyl Lomachenko.

Britain's would arguably be DeGale.

Darren Sutherland looks like he could be a good pro

i think degale has a very good style for the pro game. price is a bit to chinny. Jeffries will likley get to british title level, being for the north east will help him as there crying out for a top name boxer.

murray, yafai, and both saunders have big potential, but expect them to stay amateur for a while.

Sutherland could be a very good pro. He fights like a pro. He needs 12 rounds to wear em out. He fights on the inside, goes to the body, goes forward etc

He isn't fencing, he's fighting.

De Gale has alot of potential. He can box but the rest of his game like inside fighting, short punches etc needs work. Easy to sort out though.

yeh i would imagine if degale vs sutherland, or vs the cuban happend over 6 3 minute rounds degale would not win, but hes got more potential than both.

sutherland will only improve so much.

sutherland has all the makings of a good pro.Degale will probably bring a lot of amatuer habits into the pro game like amir kahn has so hopefully hell adapt pretty quickly

the huge advantage some of these guys have is that they have already been in fights more important than any they will have as pros until a world title shit comes along.

Sutherland is like a white Glen Johnson

DeGale will be the best. Followed by BJ Saunders.
