    This could very well be the Warrington Lara rematch at Headingley with Katie Taylor on the undercard.

    Not excited by this heavyweight at all, too laid back and was caught with punches he shouldn't have against the Spainish guy, Hearn saying 12 months domestic honours, not so sure.

    He wants Babic at the end of the year. I don't even think he beats him.

    He hasn't impressed me, if he was a novice I'd make allowances but he was a GB squad member who boxed Internationally, sparred elite pro's and even boxed on the WSB.

    He seems in good shape, takes the sport seriously, moves well but he doesn't have the physical strength or power I'd expect a guy of his size to have. AJ and Joyce would of disposed of those guys in a round in their debuts and I compare them because they are the last two pro heavyweights to turn over from the GB squad and they all spar regularly.

    He's completely crap lol. Hearn has made a woeful signing here.

    He'd probably even lose to bums like Dave Allen and Kash Ali

    I actually haven't managed to watch him yet. But having read others thoughts on this thread, I will defo make sure I watch him at Fight Camp.

    He’s definitely not completely crap. He was a GB squad member amd regular AJ sparring partner. He has skill but seemingly from his fights so far doesn’t carry enough power for a heavyweight. Will get to fringe world level if he can carry a shot with the right fights.

    for me if he was managed correctly early enough I would have turned him over a few years back and started him at cruiserweight. Go the Okolie route and grow into the big fights at heavyweight. Could have made more money that route in my opinion. Hughie fury is in a similar category. Fee like sacred will have a similar career. Beat anyone outside of top 10/20 and struggle against anyone decent.

    unless he has a Joe Joyce chin then skills really don’t matter. Keep wailing away until they can’t take anymore.

    Don't think he is back out until September. I think Delicious Orie would have been a better signing out of the GB team.

    I mean as a pro. He was a semi decent amateur nothing special at all, but that's a different game - tippy tappy boxing for just 3 rounds with bigger gloves. He's not built for the pros at all judging from his pro fights so far, I think he'll have done really well if he just wins a British title, I'd be surpised if he gets that far! Merely just being a regular sparring partner for a top boxer is meaningless.

    I reckon Sokolowski beats him, he looked scared of getting hit in his last fight and never was a top amateur
