Default The best teenage prospects

An article I stumbled on that looks at the best teenage prospects in the sport today. Some pretty interesting fighters we've got coming through around the world. The Russian kid seems pretty popular from some of the youtube videos whilst Rodriguez looks so fantastically explosive.

Well worth a read if your sick of reading about the same subjects.

Ponomarev seems to be a good example of what happens when you don't stay an amateur too long. He looks a lot more fluid an easy on the eye than about 90% of Eastern fighters. Hopefully he develops some power as he's in a division that will be tough to conquer with out it.

Yeah it's a shame so many Eastern block fighters stay amateur for too long and end up never really adapting to the professional sport like they could have done.

Just noticed Manzanarez has fought twice in the past few weeks, it's time he started facing tougher opponents, not just guys he can bowl over.

This ones flopped a bit on here which is strange as it's certainly one of the most interesting topics to myself. Ponomarev is one of the most impressive Eastern Europeans out there and with a style that is very much a "Pirog" based one as opposed to a "textbook" one.

The fact Mexico has so many top teenager prospects is a testament to the fact that they have some really promising youngsters. It's just a shame that a fair few of them will have suffered burn out by their mid 20's in our eyes. Canelo Alvarez also needs to be carful to not suffer burnout as well-he may be a strong kid but that much action at such a young age will take it's toll on you.
