Kind of agree you with Hitman and you might well be proved right....there's plenty of punching power, size and strength there but AJ can also look a bit clumsy/hesitant when pressed and there's more than a bit of Bruno in that bolt upright 'The Mummy Lives' style.
But.... AJ has also landed an Olympic Gold medal despite not being much beyond a novice level amateur and he's still young enough to be refined/schooled.
He's a big, old lump like Frank but I.M.O does not look so muscle-bound or potentially prone to stamina issues.
Warren clearly want AJ to sign on the dotted line and is making an early bid ....but my guess is that Eddie Hearn with his Sky contract and more modern, easy-going way of working with fighters will win the AJ signature.
Rob M or Mark/Jimmy Tibbs would be perfect for AJ. And no need to travel to America with 90 percent of the best heavyweights operating out of the UK or Germany right now. Do what Price has done and go and spar with all the top East European monsters.
