Good list, Wilder seems to be the front runner to me and now that he's with Team Haymon, expect a title shot for this kid some time down the line, Mitchell aint going nowhere, he's ordinary. Good power but what else can you say about him. Jennings is going to do good things, I expect if he keeps winning he'll be in line ofr a shot also. Scott has a lot of talent and he needs to get a move on and fast

I haven't seen Hanks or Monsour fight but, I keep hearing Mansour is good. I'll have to check out some of his fights, same with Hanks

Wilder is definitely on top with the 28 for 28, and the experience with the Klitschko.
Then on the bottom i have Seth mitchell, definitely just an ordinary fighter, does alot of things wrong.

I haven't seen any of the other fighters yet but thankyou for the Heavyweight prospect list, Ill get back to you

Monsour seems late to the game and last I heard he was arrested for something that wasn't his fault? Atlhough he seems like a competitor but who knows how this thing rust will effect him

I've always liked Jennings but I think he's better suited as a cruiser weight. He's 6'2" and not a big puncher so he's not really a threat to the Klitchskos. Deontay Wilder has the frame for it and the raw talent but I see a lot of holes in his game.

there's a few names i didn't put on the list that are up-and-comers that will be making noise in the very near future. these are guys i think have a much brighter future than most on that list.

andy ruiz jr (18-0 w/12ko's) who is probably the most unassuming of heavyweight prospects because he looks like baby huey. he's 6'2...started his career at 300lbs...and is slowly slimming down. he's now down to about a pudgy 240lbs. he's very aggressive and has deceptively fast hands. he's got a fight in june...then a match against joe hanks in july. he's signed with top rank.


another one of them is a guy named gerald washington (7-0 w/5ko's) who is taking a big step up in competition this weekend at the home depot center by fighting sherman 'tank' williams (35-12 w/19ko's.) he's a pure athlete and much better than a lot of the guys on that list. he's 6'5 and a solid 245lbs. el gallo negro (he's african american/mexican) is a former football player for the usc trojans. he boxed as a kid and came back to the sport after playing college football. probably the best of all the former football players turned boxers.



dominic breazeale (5-0 w/5ko's) ...he's the superheavyweight from our last olympic team and is a product of the all-american heavyweight program. he's also a former football player for colorado state. he's coming along well and is signed with al haymon.

I watched Breazeale in the Olympics, he's got a pretty good upside. I hope he's successful in the pro ranks
