I knew Hunter's best win would be Bakole, though. Ustinov was a solid name, but Bakole was a young up-and-coming HW. He got a pretty big push, but people seem to have forgotten as soon as he lost to Hunter.
People seem to have forgotten that Bakole injured his shoulder halfway through that fight. (And was most likely injured going INTO that fight.)

I'm not knocking Hunter's effort, which was solid & reasonably skillful, but IMO a healthy Bokole would take him out early, and with ease.

Of course, I happen to really REALLY like Bakole, (as you know) despite him sometimes looking a little uninspired.
(and despite him desperately needing a better jab)

Logically, unless it is a fairly superficial bicep injury the delay could bring the fight into doubt.

Who do you think Usyk should fight first up in the heavyweight division?
Someone at least the same height or taller, makes no sense to fight Takam unless they are going for Povetkin after but doesnt seem like its going to happen anymore, style wise Takam has no chance he doesnt use his size and hes smaller than the other heavyweights

For all the people saying Usyk needs to get used to the weight they already said he will come in around 215 basically the same as Cruiserweight with no rehydrating. Helenius, Chisora, Ugonoh, Parker, Charles Martin would all be better style wise, Takam poses no threat at all
