Who do you think?
In terms of stock - Benn
In terms of ability - Cordina
I've gone with Cash and Hope
And I’ve gone with no cash and no hope...
In terms of ability Buasti and Cordina.
I think Okolie will be world champion quicker than the others.
Buatsi is the best fighter on that list.
A fit and focussed Scott Fitzgerald has the ability to make some noise but it remains to be seen if he can get his head screwed on.
Joe Cordina is another one who could carve out a very successful career.
Conor Benn whilst still raw has made huge improvements so look forward to seeing how he gets on over the next 12-18 months. A fight with Josh Kelly is being talked about and he's another who at the moment appears to be more style over substance however if he manages to get the win over Avenesyan then that will make a statement that deserves credit.
Cordinas got the best ability on that list imo. Fitxy could be up there with him if he knuckled down and focused and although I hope he does, I think it's more probable that he doesn't.
I've been impressed with Dalton Smith the most from that list. Ivan Price is quality too. Felix Cash is the most exciting to watch.
Them 3 were v. Close as well for me as well.
In ten years, so will they.
if we are still classing him as a prospect then okolie.
That's a really thin list when you look at it, don't know if any of them could be legitimate world champions. Not really a slant on Hearn more on British boxing in general
I disagree. Plus Frank Warren and MTK have some fine prospects like Dennis Mccann, Willy Hutchinson, Andrew Cain, Lee McGregor. And you'll get the Olympic guys turning pro like the Mccormacks, Peter McGrail.
Okolie is fighting for the WBO World Title next. Buatsi is closing in on a WBA Title Shot. Cordina and Cash are ready for fringe world title opponents. Hearn doesn't have a lot of young British fighters anyway as he is waiting to sign the Olympians. I think Pat Mckormack, Ben Whitakker and Galal Yafai will all win World Titles. Another one not in this list is Gamal Yafai who is ready for a World Title fight in my opinion.
Sunny Edwards I heard is fighting for a World Title in his next fight or the fight after that.
Kash Farooq is another good young British prospect signed under Hearn.
