    I think most CW are big enough to move up in theory. The question is... Will his skills and power be able to compensate for him being on the smaller end of top heavies these days. at 6'2 there's still hope for him.. Because Hunter, Povetkin and Usyk are relevant at HW. But let's see how the kid does at upper echelons of CW first, think talking about a later move to HW is getting a bit ahead of ourselves.

    Yes, Rice is always game and gave Yoka hell in his 2nd pro fight, he could have won that one without hometown cooking...

    Yeah Rice is no bum. I was impressed with how Makhmudov handled him. Showed some ring craft in that one more. Established his jab, cut the ring off a lot better, more patient with his shots. Would like to see Makhmudov against Johnson before the years over. The experience he'd get from that one would help make up for the lack of ring time in 2020. Wouldn't be surprised if Rice causes more problems for Ajagba than expected especially early on but eventually he probably gets worn down and stopped.

    Honestly, Rice is probably better than anyone that Dubois has beaten until now.
    Makhmudov vs Kingpin, I don't know, against a much smaller, shorter guy Makhmudov could probably just bully his way into close range and wreck them with his nasty rear uppercut, I'd rather see him against a tall mover/durable guy.

    Yeah but more opportunities to work his jab, ability to cut the ring off and putting punches together and of course getting more rounds. I'd like to see him in with a fellow prospect soon but until then Kingpin should suffice for the reasons stated. Better than blowing over a stiff in a round or two. He learns nothing from that.

    Oscar Rivas has dropped to #8 in WBC. He has totally wasted his momentum after good performance vs Whyte and Jennings

    It is quiet about him for such a looooong time...

    He has eye problems. At one point he was not even able to be sanctioned to fight.

    What a croc of ****. How are Zhang, Schwartz, McKean, Fa, Romanov, Wallin, Sanchez, Lovejoy, and Oquendo ranked? Especially Oquendo, but enough threads have been made about that.

    I mean, some of those guys I actually like, but between them all they haven't beaten a single opponent to earn a ranking.

    Tervel Pulev will face Damir Beljo on October 3rd in Bulgaria.

    Bogdan Dinu will also be on the card.

    Bogdan Dinu vs. Tervel would be cool... Maybe he could beat the little bro and bait Pulev into a grudge rematch after hes done facing Joshua. Dinu was more than holding his own with Pulev.

    The WBA is the very worst sanctioning organization, even worse than the WBC (which does whatever Haymon wants) and WBO (which does the bidding of Warren and Arum). Oquendo being ranked is insane.

    yeah rice was on his bike in that fight but Makhmudov kept up the pressure and when rice slowed Makhmudov got him out of there.


    I wish Arslanbek hadn’t signed with golden boy I think it’s really going to stall his career would of been much better if he went top rank.

    Yeah the Eastern European guys seem to do much better with Arum for whatever reason.
