Does Olympic success/ participation have any bearing on success as a pro?
To try and stimulate some sort of debate i was wondering if gold medalists go on to always be the best fighters, or have bronze and silver medalists been more successful in making the transition as a pro?
I mean Ali and Tyson have gold medals, but then again so does Audley Harrison.
Floyd only got bronze I believe, Froch didnt get through the trials but won a medal at the world championships.
Is it a good foundation to become a pro? Or does that only apply to certain fighters?
