    He's still with Main Events, but there may be some co-promotion deal with Top Rank like Kovalev has.

    Chuck,

    Impossible to say with the quality of the Olympic judges. The field is unknown. Whomever gets gold or silver in the World Amateur Championships held September 7–21 2019, which is the best amateur boxing tournament around should medal in the 2020 games.

    Young Marko Milun has great ability, but he's young. But by the summer of 2020 he could be the man to beat.

    You can see the past results below:

    Let's see Chaney try to replicate this against someone with a pulse. Celebration was pretty cringy as well considering his opponent looks like he just finished eating at an all you can eat buffet.

    Für SHW: this will be interesting. You will have the veterans like Frazer Clarke, Kamshybek Kunkabayev or Victor Vykhryst who will try everything to get a great result in perhaps their final big amateur tournament but I would also pay attention to the young guns such as Richard Torrez from the US and Justis Huni from Australia. Top tier prospects who might have that extra bit of hunger.

    I think World Championships will show who will be in contention for Olympic gold. Sadam Magomedov have turned pro, so he is out of contention. Medzhidov is there, Kunkabayev always in contention but something always get in the way. Babanin and Omarrov are dark horses of Olympics. Torrez and younger superheavyweights can make some noise in Olympics. Vikhirst could be in top 3 but you never know because Olympics is the last hurrah for many super heavyweights, so there will be many who will compete for top 3.

    He was won it three times. He is getting older though. It he participated he's a #1 -#3 seed.

    Below are the AIBA rankings....from Sept 2018. A few guys went pro.

    Best guess on the top 4

    Majidov
    Vykhryst
    Kunkabayev
    Aboudou

    There were some really good jr's in the past two years, but my guess they will be too young to do well vs grown 22-35 year old men

    Multiple sources have confirmed that an "A" sample taken from Dillian Whyte tested positive for one or more banned substances prior to Whyte's July 20 fight in London against Oscar Rivas. Although Whyte is in the World Boxing Council Clean Boxing Program which is administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA), the test in question was administered by UK Anti-Doping (UKAD).

    The positive test result is believed to have come back on July 17. A knowledgeable source says that it was reported to the Whyte camp (including promoter Matchroom Boxing) and the British Boxing Board of Control by UKAD prior to Whyte-Rivas. However, the BBBC allowed the fight to proceed as scheduled.

    Under rules in place in the United Kingdom, Whyte has a right of appeal. UKAD takes the position that, until the adjudication process is over and due process is complete, there has not been a finding that a fighter is in breach of its PED protocols and no sanctions can be put in place by the British Boxing Board of Control.

    This means a no contest and new eliminator fight for Rivas. Another chance for Rivas to become WBC mandatory.

    Undefeated heavyweight prospect Mike Balogun (13-0, 10 KOs), of Upper Marlboro, MD, faces St. Louis veteran Ed Fountain (12-5, 5 KOs) in what promises to be an exciting clash, scheduled for eight rounds. The athletic Balogun is a former college football standout who started for the Oklahoma Sooners before playing in the NFL for three years. The southpaw Balogun will be fighting for the third time this year, with knockout victories against Marquis Valentine and Danny Calhoun coming in February and April. Fountain is seeking to rebound from a hard-fought loss to undefeated contender Hemi Ahio on March 2, in Columbus, OH.

    Whyte isn't serious about boxing, he needs roids to get him in shape for the fight and he still looked fat as hell. Retire Whyte!
