    I think he's awesome. I definitely feel he could take anyone at Light Heavy, especially Pascal. I think he'd box circles around Pascal and get a wide UD if they fought. His combination of size (he's 6'3), speed (probably fastest hands in the division) and skill are pretty unreal.

    Is that Smoger as the ref for a fight in Russia? I thought Smoger only ref'd fights on the east coast in the US?

    This dude is fantastic, him and Diego Magdaleno are my favorite prospects.

    Man has a lethal jab, good right hand, flare, and good fundamentals to go with it. I think he'll be owning the Light Heavys here soon.

    100% certified goods.

    does anyone know what his story is?? I'm intrigued to see a black guy fighting for Ukraine....though this is not a fact that should not distract from his awesome skills

    Love his potential, definitely think he's the future at 175.

    I think he has a lot going for him. Inside the ring he has a lot of skills and it seems that his managment is moveing him along smartly.
    I think that he can be one of the best at 175 by 2012 or 2013.

    Good enough to beat Cloud, Pascal, or Dawson right now. Stylisticaly he might have a tougher time with Hopkins or Cleverly. But he's very very good and I'd say good enough for a title shot now if they're inclined that way.

    Good one if you think Cleverly is better than Cloud, Pascal or Dawson. Cleverly was hurt badly by featherfisted Kuziemski.

    Sillakh is the future for sure, maybe top5 LHW right now. He could handle Shumenov and Cleverly I think. Entertaining to watch. :thumbsup

    Calm, skilfull, fast, hard punching, with great work ethic. Has potential to become an atg over a long successful career. But who knows what will happen, his talent is definitely there though.

    Very solid. My favorite prospect/contender.

    I don't see anyone at 175 having any easy night with Sillakh. I think hes about ready for a big name fight.

    I've only seen 2 or 3 of Cleverlys fights but Sillakh would beat Shumenovs ass. Shumenov sucks.
