    Default Perhaps the next legitimate p4p heir... Yuriorkis Gamboa

    This cuban is nuts. He has crazy speed(closest thing to RJJ and PBF that I've seen of the prospects) He has really good power, combinations, reflexes, he has great technique... The only problem I have with him is he tends to be a little flat footed in order to get more power, and if he wasn't so flat footed I think he would get hit even less, but this guy is insane... I haven't seen a prospect like him yet.

    He seems like the best out there.

    Could be a bit more cautious defensively but he probably will be when the competition gets better. Probably won't be able to jump so many weightclasses like Floyd did since he's so short but he looks like a can't miss type.

    He definently had an easy night. I like his style, he's going to be someone important.


    Thank God he defected...we've been missing the Kid Galivan's that Cuba has kept toiling in the amateurs! Savon and Stevenson would have been impressive to see in the pros and we were denied that opportunity.


    O. Solis seems to be a big time fighter in the future too....if he can keep his weight down

    They have him on the fast track also. In April he is fighting again, that will be 3 fights in 2008 already!!

    I think they are looking to have him make a big bang in 2009.

    From what little i've seen and heard about this guy.......he is a bad dude !!! His little flaws will go away the better guys he fights hopefully. Right now he just basically doesn't even use or need defense very much against the guys he's been in with.

    He looks awesome so far but I want to see his power v a rugged guy in and around the weight class. Everything else looks excellent thus far.

    He is so goddamn fast... There have only been a handful of guys I've ever seen like him. One thing I don't like is that he looks too much like Meldrick Taylor... I wish Floyd Mayweather Snr or some anybody that force him to throw combinations with more steam on them, and to stiffing that jab... He looks a little too much like Guzman for my liking, but I hope he will settle down in his punches a little more. As for competition he had one fight against a guy who was lik e44-11 in his third fight and he ko'ed the guy.

    Ive been following him since his first pro fight. He is the future of boxing. He riminsd me of a cross between young Tyson and Guzman.

    He's an outstanding prospect. Very skilled and talented. But like all prospects I'm curious to see what happens when he gets hit on the chin
