I mean Ali and Tyson have gold medals, but then again so does Audley Harrison.

Floyd only got bronze I believe, Froch didnt get through the trials but won a medal at the world championships.

Is it a good foundation to become a pro? Or does that only apply to certain fighters?
Tyson didn't make the olympic team. But having a gold medal means you fight stiffs, than you fight the weakest Champ of the 4 to win a Alphabet soup title. Than you fight a bunch of has been name fighters to make it look like you beat a great champion so it does help to an extent. Tyson knock out Hemry Tillman the Gold medalist as a pro for your information
