    Default HW Hopefuls that ~fizzled out, vol. 1: Obed Sullivan

    Obed Sullivan was a big strong ex-marine from Newark, NJ, who many experts felt would go far. Lou D'Uva of Totowa, NJ was tempted to mentor him in 1998.

    Fury became champ.
    Chis became a gatekeeper
    Price still has a chance

    When I read the thread title I was quite interested. I thought there was going to be a big piece on Sullivan and what became of him.

    So we're just listing boxers who became poo pretty quick?

    Didnt Larry get done for drugs? He got his head smashed in plenty. Dallas was plenty of peoples whipping boy, Sexton got twatted by Price and now he's on the march again after a British title.
    When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough

    @Memphis you're right, I'll post it in a few hours, I was in class and had to discontinue the activity.

    Well let's see....

    Dominick Guinn
    Duncan Dokiwari
    David Izon
    Friday Ahunaya
    Eddie Chambers
    DaVaryl Williamson
    Jorge Luis Gonzales
    Odlanier Solis
    Andre Purlette
    Alexander Dimitrenko


    I'd put Joe Mesi on there but I think he achieved everything he was going to BAR a true title challenge. His career was halted due to injury and that was a shame. Calvin Brock also achieved all he was going to which included a title shot, he did quite well for a late starter in the game.

    Either I don't get the question or our definition of hopeful is different. I don't think I ever had any hope that any one of these guys would amount to much.

    Those guys were all highly rated as young professionals and some even highly rated amateurs. Jorge Luis Gonzales beat Teofilo Stevenson for fucks sake AND he was 6'7 with an 82" reach....so YEAH he should have been a lot more than what he was....but I guess you knew he would fail miserably

    David Izon and Friday Ahunaya were compared to Ike Ibeabuchi

    Odlanier Solis was an Olympic Gold medalist with a very bright future.....but that brightness was apparently the Hot & Now sign at Krispy Kreme

    But hey, to each their own you don't think those guys had promise as pros that's fine

    Eddie. Chambers came to mind. Just looked at Dominick Guinn, didn't realize he became the journeyman to fight. Boytsov, Mansour, Pulev, Chambers, Tony Thompson, Saw him schooled by Lights out, Liakhovich, Barrett, Adamek, Audley Harrison....he beat Audley...haha...

    Guinn delivered against Michael Grant...under performed from then on.
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!
