    Good bare bones fight featuring 2 guys I found entertaining.
    Lt. HW 15 rds as always. I cant see this one going the distance. I favor the Russian by stoppage.

    nope, not as a pro anyway

    but Andries did fight at cruiser, so just make it a cruiser match

    You are correct. He was a light heavy as an amateur but as a pro he started as a cruiserweight. One of my friends trained with him at his gym in Arizona a few years back and said he is still in terrific shape. The guy still hits like a truck.

    I really wish Jirov would ha e stayed at Cruiserweight instead of moving up in weight. I would have loved to seen him fight Mormeck, Bell and Haye at Cruiserweight. Mormeck vs Jirov would have been a war.

    I do remember he won a gold and the trophy for best boxer of the games come to think of it. Thanks for jogging my memory!

    I don't think Andries is easy. He beat Czyz without much trouble and won the light heavy title a few times. He was strong and crude but he was decent. Strong. Not a great fighter but underrated. Bad style for Hearns, who hit him right up the middle.

    Yep. He beat Antonio Tarver for the gold. It was close fight but I remember Tarver was completely out of gas at the end of the fight and would have been stopped had there been another round.
