    Here is the list of Top-50 undefeated Heavyweight prospects (ranked by BoxRec). Make your prediction on their future in such way - put after their names a level, which they will reach in your opinion. 1) world champion; 2) top contender; 3) fringe contender; 4) gatekeeper; 5) journeyman; 6) bum. For example:

    I didn't include Kownacki in this list because he has passed prospect's level in my opinion. Zhilei Zhang is just too old to be labeled as a prospect.

    Yoka, Hrgovic, Gorman world Champions. All the rest fall short.

    Most likely to win a title.

    Vlad Sirenko . 1
    Nathan Gorman. 1
    DDD. 1

    Top 3 just miss championship in their title fight in order when it happens..

    Joe Joyce . 2
    Hrgovic . 2
    Efe Ajagba. 2

    Top 3 fringe contender that stick around

    Yolka 3
    Arias . 3
    Fa. 3

    Gate Keepers

    Mazurik
    Dychko
    Chaney

    Dark Horses that could change things.

    1. Trey Morrison
    2. Usyk
    3. Fres Oquendos

    of course my ultimate prediction still stands and that puts Joshua going without a loss until 2025 since prediction of a 10 year streak so one has to get a belt not against Joshua.At least in that time frame.

    Ajagba needs to be a lot higher than 20. He would annihilate Nathan Gorman for a start.

    1) world champion - WBA, WBC, IBF or WBO title winner

    2) Top contender - Ring Magazine top ten rated

    3) Fringe contender - Box rec rated top 11-40

    4) Gatekeeper; Box rec rated top 41-100

    5) journeyman - Will never pass box rec top 50 rating, and if he does will lose and drop out once he steps up forever. A fraud hiding behind a record built on nobodies.

    6) bum. - Not that I like the term, but will never beat anyone in the top 100 at box rec.

    Yes he would, easily. Ajagba is a scorpion like of opponent, he can paralyze a guy with one long punch. Wether he can take a good punch is the question.

    Efe, Joyce , DDD are ones to write home about.

    Gorman isn't. Possibly fringe slash gatekeeper.. low level at that.

    Spong? He's strong but I'll reserve judgement till I see his next bout/opponent then I'd put him up there with Joyce and Co.

    Maybe give Frank Sanchez another look. He’s young(no, he doesn’t look 56) with extensive amateur experience including a win over Savon. On the smaller side, but a very accurate and spiteful puncher with good footwork. He may not be a future world champion, but I’m fairly confident he could at least crack some skulls in the top 100.

    Did you saw his fight against Perea? Not a good look for him. He lacked power to really trouble Perea. Tyrone won but iit was close fight.
