I don't think he'll do a whole lot in the pros as talented as he is. Think there's rumours that even back in Cuba he wasn't all that dedicated. Be some addition to the pro game if he's really up for it though.

I'm interested to see how his style transfers over. He likes to stand in front with his earmuffs I'm, which may not work out with smaller gloves

Wonder what he's been up to the last 3 years.

Even in the amateurs he liked going toe to toe too much for his own good. Can't see him do too well in the pros because of that.

You're not winning Olympic Gold medals if you aren't dedicated. But yeah he's had some issues with the boxing association IIRC.

126 is really competitive and seems to be getting more as new fighters are emerging. You also have some good SBW's that can always move up. My favorite division in boxing.

If Top Rank signs him, they'll have Conlan, Ramirez, and Stevenson. Shit, they can be doing all their fights in house for a few years with that lineup.

Santa Cruz and GRJ will probably start getting old soon too. These guys are already in their 30's. Valdez with all those wars will be getting old on an exponential level. Dude had that 3 war stretch against Quigg, Servania, and Marriaga.

Could be a true super fight if they build it properly. And if Ramirez adapts to the pros well.
I can already tell something will derail this. When it comes to top rated amateurs like these two, I think it's best to match them up early, imo.

Wow. Let's hope he'll fight often and against decent opposition from the get go. Please no 5-year bum schedule. Not that I'm holding my breath though.

An idea who his trainer's going to be?
Pedro Diaz or Lomachenko Sr would be great.

Edit - Ok so found this: ''living in Gulfport, Florida, he will train with Rob Mendez''
Looks like a complete unknown coach? Zero results on Google..

Never heard of this guy but the name he has beat in amateur is quite a list. I hope he delivers with his pro career.

Unfortunately, Cuban boxing does poorly in the pros.
Has more to do with a fighter as an individual than the Cuban school of boxing, which is second to none and actually enables fighters to win on sheer skill even when/if they're lacking in the grit/chin department.

Gamboa
Ugas
Luis Ortiz

Barthelemy

All did pretty well and i'm sure the cream of the crop of the 80's and 90's would've done pretty well also.

22 y/o Balado (sadly died at 24) - that's a SHW for you (100kg)

Not too excited about him anymore. Took too much time off. When I heard he was defecting a year or two ago I was all about it, but it seems he's gonna have to work himself back into the game after that kind of layoff. Factor in the dedication issues that are rumored about him, his aggressive style, and the fact that he'll be undersized at Feather and I can easily see him not panning out.
