Default Why are gold medalist so bad in the pros?

Olympic Gold Medalists As Professionals

2000
Brahim Asloum: 24-2 (10 KOs), 1x champion with no title defenses

Muhammad Abdullaev: 21-4 (14 KOs), lost in his only world title shot

Audley Harrison: 31-7 (23 KOs), never put himself in position to challenge for a world title

2004
Alexander Povetkin: 34-2 (24 KOs), lost in his two biggest fights; Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua

2008
Zou Shiming: 9-2 (2 KOs), lost in his only world title opportunity, soon retires after getting knocked the f**k out in just his 11th fight

Félix Diaz: 20-3 (10 KOs), mostly known for QUITTING against Terence Crawford

Rakhim Chakhkiev: 26-3 (19 KOs), had one world title opportunity against Glowacki and got TKO’d

2012
Robeisy Ramirez: 0-1 (0 KOs), just lost in his pro-debut

Luke Campbell: 21-2 (16 KOs), split decision loss to Jorge Linares, has another chance at glory against Vasyl Lomachenko, will most likely lose that fight

Ryōta Murata: 15-2 (12 KOs), competing for minor world titles, already two losses on his resume


Egor Mekhontsev: 13-0-1 (8 KOs), accomplished nothing in his career, retires after 14 lousy fights

There have been 44 boxing Olympic gold medalists from 2000 to 2012 and only Guillermo Rigondeaux, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Andre Ward, Vasyl Lomachenko, James DeGale, Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua can say they’ve had successful careers. That’s only 6.2% of them. WOW!

It might be the scoring system .
In the Olympics every punch counts as a point . So a clean jab is equal to a power punch . Where in the pros it's the Hurt game . Usually the fighter who lands the most Effective punches wins .
Some of these guys who made their name in the Ams might find it hard to make the transition.

Fighters who debut with asskissing have a catch 22 to maintain. They're great so they have to be paired with acceptable competition. Fighters who are low key can build a more natural resume without anyone crying about it.

Like Joshua for example. He's probably fine, but, he has been pressured to be the man basically since he debuted. When he beat Charles he got a whole lot more fans but his fans were no less vehement prior; they believed he was the best for long, long time.

Looking at the Ruiz fight some folks are blaming pressure, I dunno that they're wrong. To always have to look great, not just win, it's a bit ****.

But Pedvetkin lost in embarrassing fashion to Wlad and AJ, outperformed by multiple guys who also fought them. Not to mention the guy went life and death with Huck lol.

It doesn't matter what he is , most gold medalists have went on to become champions.....Ali,, Patterson, Frazier, Foreman, Holy field ( robbed ) , Klitchko, Lewis , Joshua , that's only HW.

And if your suggesting as the thread is , the stupid thread...lol......that Klitchko had a bad run and was bad when he went on a 18/19 title defenses as a gold medalist would make you to ?

The TS didn't mention the 4 of 6 he carefully selected are dominating era champions , AJ accumulated 6/7 title defenses in 22 fights ?Think outside the box on here , which just requires thinking on here , seems to be the most difficult task on here .

Your standards are way too high. Everyone on your list who’s considered a bust has at least challenged for a world title, hold an undefeated boxer and the kid who just lost his pro debut.
