[QUOTE=dan_cov;14252737]Can't wait to see Egor back in action he is one scary prospect.[/QUOTE] He's 29 years old with only one pro fight. Scary? Maybe. But prospect? He's almost ready to retire.

Zou from the look of his last fight seems to be transitioning into a more aggressive pro style fighter. I'll be interested to see how well he continues that trend.
