Personally I'd want to get a move on and get to heavy ASAP in an effort to make a name for myself clearing out a weak division. The coming generation may be pretty talented, and that's a lot harder to conquer than a bunch of no-hopers and two ageing Ukranians.


The bloke is 22, he's not of the Pulev/Helenius generation but with the Gerbers, the Andy Ruiz's and the Joey Dawejko's of the world. He has a lot of time to mature into a heavyweight rather than being rushed.
