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
Jovi
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
mgrover
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
Franchize
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.

That was a long time ago lol...he's free and clear of that and he had a fight not to long ago and I think another one coming up this summer

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

It goes without saying...Seth Mitchell is the next American Heavyweight. What's wrong with you guys?

Wow, u weren't?? He made Arreola look like an amateur, plus he showed mad defense, excellent counterpunching and precision offensive skills. What's not impressive for a big man that is fast with those kind of skills??

Kraken isn't a bad rum, it will have you seeing sea monster. Hey man that is what I am here for! To spread love and goodness.


I think Chris Areola is the future of American Heavyweights.

he's a small heavyweight with a very slow workrate. he won't beat either klitschko...but i think he can beat plenty of the other heavies out there.
The Original MrFactor
Andy ruiz Jr might be special. The guys a very solid fundamental boxer. Slips punches very well and is deceptively fast as hell. I dont think he beats Wlad at this point, but could cause him plenty of trouble because he's agressive and has great head movement. Top this off withthe fact that he's a dough boy. He makes James Toney look like LeBron James.

deyontay wilder 28-0 w/28kos - The Scooby Doo of boxing. Uncoordinated and big. Still very, very green. Looking forward to what he brings. Can hit you from 3 miles away with a bang.

malik scott 35-0-1 w/12kos - He wont beat the Klits in any way. he's smallish and can outbox everyone under 6' 1". Think Chris Byrd II.

bryant jennings 16-0 w/8kos - kinda like a poor mans Holyfield. Does everything good, not one thing great. Smallish and just solid.

seth mitchell 25-1-1 w/19kos - Ordinary converted footbal player turned boxer. Will beat some people and will certainly lose to the Klits

amir monsour 18-0 w/14kos - Attack Dog! Fights angry with a chip on his shoulder. A little old, but would do well against the Klits due to his aggression and pure will. he's a force to be reckoned with. Window is closing due to age. Give him his shot. I like this guy! I think he'd stop Povetkin and David Haye with ease.

joe hanks 21-0 w/14kos - Needs to learn how to box. great size and power is pretty good. Just needs to tool his jab and he'll be fine. He leads with power punches.

alexander flores 13-0 w/11kos - Didnt see much of him out in cyberspace.
