    Thanks bro, should be good to see who can really predict match ups. Loads of great fights at the beginning of the year. Could be a very good year for boxing.

    Among the hardcore fans he is seen as a promising prospect. He was a better amateur than Parker for what it's worth. However there's still a long way to go for him, he really hasn't been in with anyone half decent yet.

    Interestingly enough he is training with a wide range of coaches for various things, including the shot-put power coach of former world champions Valerie Adams and Tom Walsh, and the mental coach of world #1 female golfer Lydia Ko.

    @NakiFan can probably tell you more than I can.

    Oh okay seen him fight once I think it was the undercard of the Ruiz fight, he looks like he's got a good jab very big guy but really lacking in speed if I remember correctly, could benefit on losing abit of weight.

    Hmm, interesting stuff.

    Aleem's close results against average competition is worrying.

    Trust me bro he was robbed against Nicholson, whilst Khytrov might beat him due to his amateur pedigree, I'm gunna go on a limb and say kyhtrov will win on a close decision or Aleem pulls of the upset. I'm even gunna put him a small accumulator. With that being said I'll look like a fool if he gets knocked out early look. If he sticks and moves he will beat him IMO.

    I hear you, I've been watching footage and thinking about the fight, lol. I've seen Nicholson available as a +425 underdog.

    How durable is Nicholson anyway?

    I kind of want to. BUT, what if I over analyze my attempts at predicting things even more, and further tank my actual gambling :crybaby2::crybaby2:

    Just separate the two, you don't have to bet how you pick, look at me, I'd have probably won this won years in a row had I gone with who I though would win instead of who I wanted to win.:lol: Just go with your gut instincts, the same one you use when gambling, don't think too much, that's what has got me into trouble so much here.

    Hmm. I think I'll get on board, thanks for the thoughts. When is the cutoff again?

    Good to hear.:borra2: You can join at any time, but if you want to be competitive and actually have a chance to win, get your picks in for this weekend's fights.

    That sums it all up. Junior does have a massive 6ft 6 frame coupled with good mobility. I hope he does well, as it'll be great to follow his journey alongside JP.
