ramirez, lomachenko, Sapiyev, Mekhontcev and Joshua
I have a funny felling the Korean may turn it on against Loma though
Thought Tugs won that round by at least a couple of points - looks like the Cuban just needs to stay on his feet to win
Sapiyev should have this comfortably, Evans can be a lazy bastard at times
WTF is Evans doing, poor performance, 5 down, deserves to lose. Hasn't turned up at all - needs a huge last round
Very poor performance, one of the worst I've seen this tournament.

Credit where its due in winning a silver, has been good all tournamnet bar a couple of late fight lulls but really didn't turn up today of all days
I think Oscar Valdez, Mark Barriga, Vasyl Lomachenko, Evaldes Petrauskas, Denis Berinchyk, Ryota Murata, Khytrov and Sapiyev should all turn.

Out of the Brits I reckon Selby, Campbell and Ogogo are best prepared fot the change although I expect them all to turn over.
All but one final predicted correct so far (damn right I'm claiming Pong and Falcao victories:hey, two to go - come on Mek and Josh
Evans shouls stay amateur - I dont think his style suits the pro's and he seems to have conditioning problems in the three round format.

Would like Josh to stay for another year or two as well but doubt he will
Well done to Anthony Joshua, he only won half his fights but walks out the Olympic champ:hey
I'd like to congratulate Erislandy Savon, the real champ
except for the next 15 years its what were gonna hear about. all these people saying Savon is the best fighter are full of shit. they have seen him fight 3 rounds in there whole life
Rubbish mate, I've seen Savon fight a few times and said before the bout he would cause problems for Joshua. Joshua did well but he did lose to Savon and the Cuban put a good effort in at the worlds and his performances have rightly turned people into fans of his.

Everyone telling Joshua he is amazing and what not are doing him no favours either, he deserves plaudits for all his achievements and for a relative novice he has has a remarkable rise but he still has some flaws to iron out yet.

Hopefully he stays an amateur for another year and gets a good 8-10 fights in before turning over.
