    I like what I seen so far in Tim Tszyu. He seems to have good skills and a real desire to be champion. I think he will be. He destroyed Morgan and dominated Jeff Horn. I'm expecting some what more of a challenge from Dennis Hogan. But still expect Tim to come out on top

    True, but one can question how do legends produce such mediocre children? Watching Ronald Hearns live- he looked so ordinary, it looked as if I could make it the distance with him.

    Watching Aaron Pryor Jr, I kinda knew he wouldn't make it anywhere near the top. My reason for stating this is when I met him at IBHOF he seemed like a really nice kid. He's listed at 6'4. For me it was his demeanor. Nothing like the bitter childhood his dad grew up in.
    Not stating every fighter should look like they got a mean streak in them -BUT! if they aren't quick with hands, display a high level of knowledge, then what's left?

    Jr. is just a nice guy with height & reach advantage, but no killer instinct like his father.



    I forgot that Buddy's son boxes as well. James Mcgirt. Edwin Rogriguez had beatan both sons back to back.
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    Here's the thing. It all starts with interests. Like the jock father who wants more than anything for his son to be good at sports... and it turns out the son wants to be a painter/musician instead. So first you've got to check that box. If the kid's not interested... sadly he's just not interested. Support his interests and forget what you envisioned. He'll be the happier for it. Sometimes though, the son feels inner pressure to be like his old man. He may have the desire, but not the skill. He may not have either... just a pressured sense of commitment. It's only when all the planets align (desire, skills, no parental pressure)... that you have that "chip off the ol' block." In rare cases, the son even surpasses his great father.
