Default Fighters With Wasted Potential

The number 1 person that comes to mind is Andrew Golota. Andrew had the size and skills to have been a solid heavyweight champion. He had a terrific jab, and could throw elite combinations, always finishing with the left hook. A true pedigree, fluid and loose and could also take a decent punch. But he squandered all that talent by not being able to control himself in the ring. If a talent like him were around today the one that beat up Bowe and minus the fouling part I believe he'd be able to clean up the division.

I think Bob Arum would agree with me in suggesting Felix Verdejo as a perfect example of wasted potential.

I was going to say Bojado but I'm not sure, he looked great but folded vs Rubio. Mentally, probably more effed up than Ortiz.

Definitely. He looked a supreme prospect.

Although he won a world title Mark Breland is definitely one.

Audley Harrison is actually another less obvious one.

Broner as well.

If Michael Nunn didn’t go down a bad path he could’ve been a GREAT fighter but he still had a good career so saying he wasted his potential is a little harsh.

If Ike Ibeabuchi didn’t go to prison he could’ve definitely made a splash in the HW division.

Of my generation...

Joel Julio- looked at as the next Trinidad and was supposed to put Colombia on the map.

Andre Dirrell- so much natural talent, but never became champion even in a era where belts are given away. Shame he fought with so little heart

James Kirkland- was a wrecking ball southpaw but kept going to prison and was never the same after beating Joel Julio

Ibeabuchi- had it all but went to prison

Victor Ortiz- had all the physical gifts but had a bully mentality. When the going got rough he caved in
