    Probably has to do more with his ego.
    5 bucks says he always goes all out. And no, most don't want hard sparring all the time.

    This has to be a joke.

    I am certain that Shawndell Winters took a dive against him. I cant prove it, but it certainly looked like it to me.

    The likes of Hughie Fury and Nathan Gorman would beat Babic.

    He's exciting to watch from what little I've seen and I do like how he punches from either stance like Tyson did, but he's really wild at times, I doubt he'll succeed at the top level against the huge guys who will push him about, tie him up and keep him at range.

    He doesn't have Tyson's speed or explosiveness or head movement and I'll be shocked if he can sustain that work rate for more than 6 rounds.

    I got excited there for a minute then I watched him fight.

    He could make it to the top 25 I guess?

    I got excited when I saw he worked Niall Kennedy in under 2 rounds, and then I thought for half a second maybe, how long would Kennedy have lasted with those two greats? Excitement = dissipated. Then without even seeing him fight and just listening to otherstalk about what they saw, I came to the conclusion the OP maybe onto something here, sounds like if he hits his ceiling and everything goes according to plan, he has a chance of making it inside the top 150 HWs which is quite the accomplishment in this stacked, wild, and murderous current HW division.

    Superb scouting skills, sir.

    This.
    I’d say he doesn’t know how to spar an the better fighters he’s been sent home from can’t be going through wars to tame him every spar.

    He reminds me exactly of the 'Russian Nightmare' Rostislav Plechko who defeated a bunch of bums in 1 round and then disappeared. Most likely due to him knowing he was never good enough to be a serious contender.

    Both are hyper aggressive, fun to watch, small but sloppy and uncoordinated.

    I like him. Babic is fun to watch, goes for the KO from the opening bell. Never a dull moment in his fights.

    Very good undercard fighter. I prefer to watch someone like Babic over a skilled but overly-defensive boxer like Hughie Fury.
