    Who are your favorite prospects?

    Criteria:

    1) No more than 20 fights
    2) Can not have fought for a WBA, WBO, WBC or IBF title
    3) Minor titles (i.e. EBU, NABA, Commonwealth, International) are ok


    My picks are the following

    1) Abner Mares
    2) Ronald Hearns
    3) Andre Ward
    4) Andre Dirrell
    5) Amir Khan

    My clear favorites are these in no order. No telling who's going to be better then who but these are the front runners. Those are the most sure things imo except for Williams but Williams is going to be good. Banal, Ward and Mares are all going to be titlist within the next 2 years imo.

    Aaron Williams
    Andre Ward
    Abner Mares
    Yuriorkis Gamboa
    AJ Banal
    Andre Berto
    The Peterson Brothers, especially Lamont but both are very good.

    Then there are a whole host of others who have accomplished different levels of success early on.

    Peter Quillin
    Joe Greene (who we will see tonight on WNF)
    Devon Alexander
    Chazz Witherspoon (though he needs to pick it up)
    Tovaris Cloud
    Matt Goddfrey
    Yoan Pablo Hernandez
    Alfredo Angulo
    Victor Ortiz
    Antonio Johnson (if he is still fighting, he went back to Minnesota from CA and it was a bad move imo)

    Then there are guys who have just turned pro recently but I think they have potential to be very good.

    Rico Ramos
    Mike Dallas Jr.
    Mark Davis Jr.
    Qaid Muhammad
    Kevin Buckley
    Beibut Shumenov (Who was a very good amateur but disappointed in Athens. He might just get a title shot before any of the people on these bottom two lists and he's only 5 fights in.)

    There are loads others I have written down elsewhere in a notebook but these are the ones off my head after thinking a bit.

    Man wish i would've known...me and the wife had a good time. What could anyone think, for what ward was against and his limited comp before that i'd have to say he looked great, too early to tell about the future though. Nice to see a boxer from the bay doin it somewhat big lol !!

    Theres a few guys i like out there that i didnt put down cos theres a fine line where a fighter is still a prospect or has had enough losses or fights to consider them otherwise..

    But.. they are still up and coming..

    Bernabe Concepcion... I consider him as the top 122 lbs. prospect... Even higher than Juan Manuel Lopez...

    Concepcion will be fighting this weekend's "Latin Fury" card in Mexico...
