This guy is a world amateur champion who beat Murata (if you've not seen that fight youtube it, AMAZING) and was controvesially beaten by the British bloke in the Olympics...so what the eff is he doing fighting Romon Barber (4-6, 3) next time out?

 

I understand some prospects need to be moved slowly but this guy is a freaking beast!

He's had one fight. I know we disagree on this issue constantly, but don't you think it's a bit ridiculous to nitpick a professional record that started about 6 weeks ago?

 

Agreed. The main adjustment from amateur to professional is getting used to the longer distances - thats not something that should be rushed.

Amateur World Champion, IMO, has proven his worth against the best in the world, fighting bums for the next 3 or 4 years isn't just a step backwards but is a massive one. Lomachenko (Khytrov's team mate as an amateur) is showing how it should be done, Murata (a guy he beat in Baku)is showing how it's done and whilst it is nitpicking you cannot argue that it's counter productive to go from fighting high level amateurs to fighting low level pros....anoth er good example of someone who didn't go backwars is Rigo whose (skillwise) turned out alright

Debuted in an a bout scheduled for 8

Second bout is scheduled for 6

 

That sort of blows your argument out of the water, at least keep them for 8 rather than effectively going backwards there

Or he struggled with eight rounds, because they were moving him too quickly, so have dropped him back to six - kind of backs up my argument.

That's pure speculation - he's been a pro since December and this is fight number 2. If he's still fighting nonentities after half a dozen fights and blowing them all away with no progression, you have a point, but your current argument is "That's two bums he's fought now - he can't carry on this way for the next 5 years"...except there is not yet any evidence he's going to.

--- Agreed, it's a massive step backwards, but not his but rather your nonsensical projections of what you want him to do that has nothing to do with him developing a professional career according to his own criteria.
