    Do you Predict Hrgovic will ever challenge for a world Title shot?

    Will he ever sniff gold?
    Will he grasp the coveted World championship Titles??
    Not counting minor belts

    I know it's a bit hasty of a question seeing where he is at. I just want to look back & see years down the line

    Yeah, like who's holding the titles? No way to know. So you can't even try to predict how good Hrgovic will be - the only prediction that will suit is predicting that he will definitely be better than Anthony Joshua or predict that he will be better than the potential of all the guys who are coming up with him. But there's no way to know who will hold titles...

    He's a title holder type in terms of potential, but that means very little.

    He is definitely in that 'next gen' mix of Dubois, Yoka, Bakole, H.Fury, Ajagba, etc. I could see him picking up a WBO somewhere along the line when the belts fracture, there will be plenty of gold up for grabs. We are yet to see him in deep waters and I sense a touch of the Joseph Parker's about him who coincidentally is only 28 as well and could well be still in this pack in 5 years time, has lost to Yoka, Joyce and Nistor in the ams and all of those are potential future opponents.

    Bakole and Hughie Fury won’t do anything big in their careers.

    Hughie has already fought for a heavyweight world title, that is pretty big in my book.

    No it isn’t. Isufi fought for a world title. So did Takoucht.

    At heavyweight? Surely having a world title fight is the pinnacle of the sport.

    No that would be winning a world title or better yet unifying and defeating top opponents in your era like Joshua and Fury have done.

    You do realise that the vast majority of people who take part in both amateur and professional sport will NEVER EVER challenge for a world title? What % of boxers do you think get a world title fight?

    I'd be surprised if he didn't at some point didn't get a title shot. When you consider some of the guys that have gotten title shots in the past like Leapai and Ferguson who'd lost 5 of his last 8 fights before fighting Bowe. With all the titles these days and possible vacant title shots which can see guys like Martin and Glazkov fight for a title, would seem that at the very least is attainable.

    Whether Hrgovic wins is anyone's guess, depends who he's facing for one, way too many variables.

    I expect Hrgovic to have title fights, not just once.

    He is good enough and young enough.

    Many fight fans are just "amazing".
    A top ten fighter loses, most likely a minor upset, and all of a sudden he's a "bum".
    How many posters here have ever been top 10 in anything... besides maybe posting drivel here :sisi1

    Very likely Hrgovic gets one or more title shots. Too many variables to say if he wins a belt or more.

    I suspect he gets at least one shot.
