    He'll prob turn pro. Sometimes people get carried away with their boxers or their own ability and expect them/selves to be able to dominate senior level just because they were top juniors and it doesn't always work thatway. In fact more often than not it will take a few seasons to adjust to the mixed age range boxing against far more experienced boxers.

    On another note credit has to go to Josh Leather who stopped him and has seen a remarkable change over the last couple of seasons. Two seasons ago he had lost nearly as many as he won and a change to Wellington ABc has seen beat a few top lads and make it to the ABA semi's. Not bad for a season and a half turnaround.

    The lad pulled out 2-3 days in advance. That's armature boxing I guess.

    I think its semi's but don't quote me on that.

    It all gets a bit complicated with many already qualified so some weights you can qualify in different rounds. Heavy/Super Heavy is semis at the worlds so it may be the just the finalists for them
