    Default Best American prospect right now?

    I know it’s been a long time, I have been still following boxing just not as eager to argue with people as I used to be. I have been watching a group of young guys from the states in teofimo Lopez, devin Haney, shakir Stevenson, Ryan Garcia. And besides Garcia I am not sure I’ve seen so many well round truly elite prospects since I’ve started watching, especially around the same weight. Who do you guys figure will come out on top? I could see any of the other three having the potential to take on lomachenko. They are all really fast, but don’t try to force it like broner, Russell, Berto. They all seem in great shape, tons of experience sparring and training in the best gyms. Lopez seems to have a lot more power, but maybe a little too wild. Haney and Stevenson seem really well rounded but not very heavy handed. I am super excited to see how they match up with each other and guys like linares, lomachenko, tank, and pedraza. Just because I haven’t commented on it, I view lomachenko as 1a p4p to crawford’s 1b, but we will see when he starts throwing his right hand with mean intentions again.

    ... still have my tangents out of control, back to the questions, how do you feel these guys rank vs each other and why?

    Sorry that is true, and there are others as well but I mean specifically at or around this weight class(135). He definitely looks talented though! I am asking specifically of these American guys, I changed the title to better reflect my question.

    Haney and Lopez look the goods and could be on a collision course.

    Yeh have to agree Lopez and Haney have the feel of natural talent. Garcia for me a bit more groomed and pushed but he calmed it down last time out. Haney headlines up in Shreveport Friday night. One day I'll get my arse out to an actual local card. Still like King Tug but he has to get busy as he approaches 27 yrs old.

    David Benavidez has been impressive.

    He's still just age 22 yet he's been a pro for several years already.

    Nyambayar's got a tough fight towards the end of the month with Marrero, that fight should tells us more about both guys.

    Good call on Ennis, I'm impressed where he's got to without 1 of the big promoters backing him.

    The only person putting up decent wins is Andrew Tabiti... Everyone is is just a few names on the list of the 2016 Olympics/World Games cycle.
