    Less than 20 fights.

    Feel free to list even newer fighters with 10-15 fights, regardless of weight class.

    Solomon Haumono comes to mind. He's 14-0 (14 ko):

    Hasn't faced any quality opposition yet but he's powerful and very fast for a HW.

    Any obscure prospects come to mind for anyone here?

    There's a middleweight who was gunning for 20 straight first round KO's. I forget his name.

    He was taken to a draw a few days ago though.

    Tyrone Brunson is the lads name. He's poor I think most people knew he would get exposed, even when he only stepped up to right somebody with a winning record, I mean not even on the level of a decent journeyman.

    David Lemieux (sp?) springs to mind, he's 7-0 with 7 KO's, not sure how hard he hits though as I haven't seen him fight, that could be down to his speed and/or choice of opponent.

    That's the thing, I mean Khan's next opponent Breidis Prescott is 19-0 with 17 KO's, yet his level of opposition is poor. He can never be sure whether he hits hard and he's KO'ing these guys because of genuine power, or because they are china chinned fighters making there pro debuts who aren't used to taking punches and therefore having little resistance.

    Mother****er beat me to it. :twisted:

    David hasn't fought anyone worth mentioning yet, but he hits extremely hard. I've seen his amateur fights up close and his punches sound like a shotgun going off.

    Denis Boytsov has a fair amount of KO's and is young. But he didn't impress me against Hawkins. Maybe he was told to get some rounds in, but he seemed tentative and afraid to engage, or tire himself.

    It's crazy because I always assume 20 fights means an unexperienced young fighter but David Haye has only had 22 and as PowerPuncher stated, Ibeabuchi only had 20.

    Not 20 but close with 22 fights Juan Manuel Lopez has some serious power. Also Tavoris Cloud 19 fights with 18 knockouts recently ko'd Julio Cesar Gonzalez. His record

    I'm really curious where Lopez is going to go from here.

    Ponce had a amazing chin himself.
