  • Comments Thread For: Yoka: If You Asked Me Five Years Ago Where I'd Be Now, It Would Have Been Further Along Than This

    Tony Yoka will be the first to admit there is far more that needs to be done just to get where he expected to be at this time. The 2016 Olympic super heavyweight Gold medalist from France is undefeated in the ring thus far as a pro, though his career has anything but perfect. The 29-year-old from Paris, France enters just his eleventh pro fight, his activity stalled due to the unfortunate combination of a one-year suspension for missing random drug tests and the global pandemic to follow.

        In this sport, being the way it is, especially in the heavyweight division, I’m extremely skeptical when I hear innocent explanations for missing random drug tests. Maybe I’m jaded from having followed things for a while, but it’s mostly just my grasp on human nature and high level athletics in general.

          I am glad he recognizes that his progression has been slow, even though it isn't fair to compare people i just cannot accept he hasn't really made an impact since turning pro. Even Joe Joyce is ahead of him.

            If I'm not mistaken he already fought Hammer in 2020. Hammer took him the distance and frustrated him a bit with rough tactics but it was a wide points win. Yoka has some good wins even tho his career was stunted from his suspension: David Allen, Jonathon Rice, Michael Wallisch, Alexander Dimitrenko, Johann Duhaupas, Christian Hammer and even Joel Tambwe Djeko isn't bad...

            The Milas fight will be interesting, the Croatian seems decent. Yoka is talented and athletic but I question his resolve and durability if someone puts him in a difficult place.
