Yeh I'd stay away from the bookies aswell mate...
ironically we were once accused of being the same person by one of the forum's interesting long since banned people. Still makes me chuckle.
Yeah I know what you mean, I think I just have a lot more admiration for Richards while I see Buatsi as a bit of an enigma right now, he's doing nothing and that loses you marks.
It's a tough 1 to distinguish between the boxers (Richards/Buatsi) to the punchers (Azeez/Yarde)
For me Smith is #1 because he can do both and has been at world level well before the others, then I have to say after that performance against Beterbiev I'd squeeze Yarde #2 just above Buatsi. #4 Azeez only because of activity but I do think Richards is a better boxer, showed a lot in that fight with both Bivol & Buatsi but yeah sadly Richards 5th.
It's close between all of them, Buatsi the least tested but on pure skill and potential I rate him slightly higher than Yarde. His performance vs Richards doesn't get the credit it deserves for me. Richards was extremely unlucky against Bivol and I'd bet my car that Bivol beats Beterbiev. A lot of unknowns and hypotheticals which doesn't often translate into real life! but hopefully we get to see them against each other and challenging for more world honors.
All of them are brilliant fighters.
Ha. Jurgen and his cronies. Strange bunch. Place has improved tenfold since they've knocked it on the head.0
Isn't Jurgen Beale now ?
Is he? Can't say I've even noticed a beale tbh which is a good thing surely!
I’d like to see yarde fight either buatsi or azeez next.
Just seen Franks interview on IFL and he said he offered Buatsi the Yarde fight but he turned it down to go to Sky…what is this guy doing
Although sadly, he / she hasn't posted for around 6 / 7 weeks.
whys craig richards on the list hes crap
At least he’ll fight anyone…
Thing about Richards is I think the recent uncoverings from his gym taint the competitive Bivol performance a bit. Or I could just be speculating
Sky just tweeted Buatsi has signed for Boxxer
Presumably fighting Azeez for the Euro next
