19-year-old. 1-0 as an amateur so far. "Big promoters" have already been in touch.

Trainer Graham Everett: “Henry, in his first fight looked really good. Without trying to put too much pressure on him, he is an absolutely great prospect.”

An interesting one to keep an eye on.

I hope he has the chin and not the power of his old man.
So you don't particularly like the lad then?? Or is it his Dad??
@Strike totally agree that Herbie could punch, not sure what you're saying about his ability to take one. If I remember rightly, nothing wrong with his chin. Only ones I remember putting him away were 2 beasts who were a lot bigger than him. Vitali and Riddick Bowe.
If the lad is anything like the Dad,anything could happen to him both inside or outside the ring, if it hasn't already.

Mate he was chinny, and I hate obsessions over "chins" in boxing. But he was put away by the breeze of a Vitali punch and Vitali was a good puncher, not a huge one. Lots of guys went further and got up from cleaner shots off Vitali, the Hide one makes the Ali-Liston phantom punch look like Mercer's uppercuts on Morrison.

He was also put over with every half connection than Bowe landed, and he was KO'd by Chingangu at Cruiserweight too. He was knocked down by Craig Peterson apparently too. I agree his record does not scream "chinny" but he was.

Hated the old man, don't like it when the children of high profile boxers seek their own fame in the sport. Especially when they come into the sport late.
