    Why don't heavyweights who are being avoided fight each other?

    For example, Hunter vs. Hrgovic would be a fine matchup.

    Hrgovic named Zhilei Zhang as one of the heavyweights he'd like as his next opponent.
    Zhang's response: “Bring him on. Why not [Hrgovic]. Let’s do it!”

    It would be huge for boxing here if he can get a medal. It'll be our first medal since David Tua in 1992 and our first Olympian since Soulan Pounceby in 2004. I'm assuming that he'll join forces with Kevin Barry (another former Olympic medallist) in the pro ranks. Nyika v Opetaia has the potential to be a huge fight in a couple of years time.

    On they Olympics, I think the question is what colour medal Huni will get. Jalolov will be tough to beat and beat him recently, but Huni would have learned a lot from that. I hope he can make the adjustments required to challenge for Gold.

    Huni just went pro. He looked fast and skilled in his debut ,but didn't show much power. Jalolov is a huge athletic man with top end power.

    More like its about the champions cherry picking a medium level undefeated types not ranked in the top ten at Ring Magazine or Box Rec. Look at past Fury opponents for example. Aside from Wilder they were all $#^T

    Yes but Huni is still going to the Olympics. He's having a few pro fights beforehand.

    Yeah don't agree with it either tbh. Jalolov has had 6 Pro fights himself.

    Would be amazing if we got Wilder/Ruiz and Hrgovic/Hunter in the first quarter if the next year.
