    Next fight for Buatsi is Marko Calic, 32 year old Croatian who looks like he's never fought anyone. Surprised Yarde didn't snatch this opponent.

    Calic was a decent amateur, but yeah hes done nothing as a pro.

    He is ranked only in boxrec as #154th. Buatsi is 14# in boxrec + declared as top prospect.

    Hearn can turn Bellew and Whyte into PPV attractions but can't seem to do anything with Buatsi??

    Buatsi was sparring in my gym on Wednesday. I’ve no doubt he’ll win a world title, more power than most heavyweights.

    it’s a real experience training alongside a pro. I did with a few years ago and was amazed how good and fit they were

    Buatsi fought some kind like 95/5 matchups, all easy fights walk in the park for him. Opponents low in ranking, even boxrec.
    Very easy fights, a lot of journeymans.
    He is Oly medalist, looks might be good prospect.

    Buatsi has serious punch resistance issues.

    Has been moved painfully slowly. So slowly that even matchroom fc is getting a little bit suspicious about what is under the bonnet.

    We all remember how slowly and carefully a certain Amir Khan was moved until the notorious night he fought Prescott.

    Buatsi certainly isnt being prepared for any kind of level of opposition with his pro career so far, and suspicions now must be very high. Successful amateurs are usually moved along at a decent rate because they dont need the learning fights in the pros.

    Don't know who trains him but maybe Buatsi needs to go up to Sheffield for some Ingle Pringles

    Joe Gallagher says Johnson is moving down to 168. I think its likely Buatsi will fight Mikhalkin on Joshua/Pulev, Buatsi says he'll be fighting twice this year.

    It is not possible to tell, he had really easy nights in office with opponents, almost all below top100 and without decent power.
    Against these he looked damn impressive, he is also Oly medalist.
    Maybe he is very good, it is not possible to tell until he will have some not too old boxer from real top 50 in the ring.

    Didn't Hearn say in an interview this week that he wants to make Buatsi Vs Callum Johnson? I think he wants to make it for the European title.
