    ... Alen "THE SAVAGE" Babic.

    I seen him interviewed earlier in the week where he revealed he studied Tyson & Frazier, and by god it shows! If Mike Tyson's peek-a-boo style was a level up from Floyd Patterson, then the Savage is a level above Mike.

    He has Tyson-esque power in both hands, and Joe Frazier's relentless work rate. Dare I say he also has a splash of Floyd Patterson's speed as well??!!

    He just destroyed Big Niall Kennedy inside 2 rounds on Eddie Hearn's matchroom show. Seriously, I don't know if many of the posters on classic watch modern boxing but you need to check this fella out. He's just above the heavyweight limit but knocking out fellas twice his size.

    It's been decades since we seen a heavyweight of his ilk. The "super heavyweights" are about to be chopped down!

    Please stop. As of right now, he shouldn't even be favoured over David Price.

    Nonsense. Price couldn't even beat Povetkin who is a far, far worse (and older) version of the Savage.

    He's a 200lb man who's throwing over a hundred punches a round. Not tippy tappy punches either. He's a freak.

    I don't think he is at the level of young Tyson but i hope you are right. I would love to see the big heavyweights chopped down.

    Lol def shouldn’t be compared to Tyson...I like seeing a guy who’s not a shw so hopefully he goes somewhere. Nice work rate but doesn’t look like he throws punches like Tyson. More like a mix of Tyson and Marciano. He clubs like Marciano with his punches. He’s Raw but you see some potential. Also no proof he can take a punch yet from quality opposition. Good luck to him though looks entertaining and the type of fighter I’d like to watch

    How tall is he? What's his weight? I have seen him fight but I am unsure of his physical stats

    If he studied both them men then he'd know that style relies on numerous physical attributes which he might not even have and also it can be extremely energy inefficient.

    Find a man who can take this guy past 6 rounds I bet he'll end up looking like Brandon Rios, a human punch bag.
