Top Prospects

Post by Spud »

In the forums opinion does the UK have fighters who will be regarded as “World Class” in the future?

Who are they?

When will we see them step up to World Class?

in my opinion the 5 that stand out are:

Moses Itauma
Adam Azim
Caroline Dubois
Ben Whittaker
Hamzah Sheeraz

The one fighting for a title shot soonest is probably sheeraz against janibek at the end of this year since hes now his mandatory. the one with the most potential imo is itauma or azim

there is only one real answer here Spud. Hughie 'Shades of Ali' Fury. When he gets his man strength in 2054 the HW division is on notice.

Just kidding. I think Vuong is a good prospect, too soon to step up to date.

And at a domestic level in terms of ceiling, I think Joe Hayden is developing very well and selfishly I hope he does so as he's a lovely lad.

Who do you see as prospects Spud?

Yep, great list. Feels right on the money for me. I’d back Azim or Whittaker to go furthest.
Dalton Smith is worth mentioning, but feels a rung below those you’ve listed :TU:

I worry it’ll be another case of turning pro a little too late, had pat turned pro in 2016 I think he’d have won a world title or 2 by now

I was going to say the same, but are medical problems goingto scupper that?

In addition there are rumours that they “perhaps” dont live the life.

Also behind the scenes I have been helping
2 brothers with regards the various things to consider in going professional..

Adil & Naseem Miah

They are going to cause a stir when they go professional

Aloys Youmbi, fight ending power, wasn't afraid to step up on short notice on his debut, love the look of him.

Just noticed Vuong is from the North East..

North East boxing could do with a big star.

From what’s being said the McCormack brothes need a kick.
