    As for BoxRec, they have Hart at #3 which is ****ing ridiculous.

    I feel like Bivol is a victim of his own success. He just has to wait for Beterbiev/Smith Jr. and Jack/Pascal 2 and keep winning in the meantime. The only issue I have with the proposed Bolotniks match-up is the date. This should be happening within earlier than September.
    Butsai will never be ready for Bivol though lol.

    and yeah, Hart is 1-1 at LHW and is ranked 3rd. Zurdo is 2-0 at LHW against journeymen and is ranked 7th. They put way too much into previous weight class...especially when you consider neither of them were world beaters at 168 either.

    Matchroom destroyed the dude's momentum. Not sure why they don't shell out the money for a good opponent for him. It's not like they have a lot of guys to promote in the States.

    Please no, Bolotniks is Euro level at best

    Gotta love Boxrec rankings too. This guy is 18-5-1 with only 7 fights being at LHW (most of career at Cruiser) all 7 of those fights being against journeymen, and somehow they have him ranked 10th
