Where are the real boxing minds on here?

People overrate these Ukrainians until they meet legit Russians that will beat them. If Glassiev had started boxing early with a solid amateur record like most Russians, he would've beaten Usyk as well. People forget Beterbiev beat Usyk in the amateurs at LHW but lost to him at HW. He also beat Kovalev in the amateurs. Gvozdyk rode the Ukrainian hype to get destroyed in the ring.

Russia made Cuba the bastion for amateur boxing and the same thing is happening in Uzbekistan right now. I expect Uzbeks to dominate professional boxing in the next few years once the killers they're churning out in the amateurs start turning pro.

Keep Bivol away from Beterbiev - he'll get knocked out clean. Battle of the Ruskis, but Beterbiev has a far better amateur pedigree and crazy power to take Bivol's head off.
100 percent. Now they're making the same mistake saying bivol would beat beterbiev. The reason gvozdyk beat stevenson is because stevenson like to keep lots of distance between him and his opponent waiting for the left hand. This plays into gvozdyk's style. Gvozdyk has been dropped twice by bums leading up to this fight and he gets very uncomfortable anytime anyone closes the distance. He needs lots of space to punch. I got beterbiev beating bivol.

Speaking of amateurs. Bivol never even made the national team. Beterbiev was a far more decorated amateur. Bivol goes 12 rds with guys beterbiev would smoke in 3.
