    Isn't he just 18 or something? Seems mad to be turning pro that early, I know Allen hardly had any amateur fights before turning pro but the Heavyweight game is a slightly different one, although it has still shown whenever he has tried to step up.

    Good luck to the kid but as people have said, he'll have to be moved along very slowly.

    As has been alluded to earlier itt think the formula for success is get on the lockdown juice first, then maybe go on a Love Island type reality show like Tommy Fury and get that big casual fan base.

    Proceed to call out everyone at the top of his division for years whilst grinding out points results against Eastern European Uber drivers :deal:

    It’s a good point. Wonder how many fighters performed poorly as amateurs but went on to carve solid pro careers out for themselves. Johnny Nelson springs to mind.

    Didn't Canelo turn pro at 15 in Mexico?. Doesn't appear to have done him any harm.

    That's right, for a Mexican he was fairly late starting in the pro ranks :biggrin:

    Seems ludicrous him coming pro when he was such a poor amateur, Dave had a short amateur career and he won a national title this kid has seemingly lost more amateur bouts than he's won and hasn't even won an area title at amateur and is out of shape, looking forward to the state of the latvians he will be put in with

    Probably on an apprenticeship wage, few hundred quid a week and free hols to Marbella why bother developing as an amateur when you can hang with the ballers.
