Default Is Franklin Lawrence one of the best kept secrets in the HW division?

Although he's already 37, he hasn't been a pro for that long. But, since dropping a very debatable decision to Oliver Mccall in 2009, he's won 7 straight, all by KO. And, in those 7 wins, he steamrolled Jason Estrada and Lance Whitaker. He battered and outclassed Estrada, which says something given the fact Estrada was competitive against Povetkin and Adamek, and neither of them were able to stop Estrada. Lawrence was able to.

In watching Lawrence's fight with Estrada, I noticed he has a really short, quick and very hard left hook that he throws well both outside and inside. He also fights inside very well, something most heavyweights aren't very good at. He works the body very well too. He has a good uppercut and straight right as well. And although he looks a bit crude at first, he has deceptive skills, as well as good timing and surprisingly good hand speed. I don't know neccasarily how far he'll go, but at the very least I think he's being overlooked too much, and I feel he'd be a tough match up for anyone in the division right now.

Here's his fight with Estrada:

Also another older HW "prospect" to keep your eye on, he's a short stocky southpaw with very good power and hand speed, who beat and dominated Dominick Guinn. His name's Amir Mansour. Here's a highlight of one of his fights.

Lawrence turned down the fight with Glazkov on NBC tomorrow.

Malik Scott was about the 10th boxer they asked.
