With Wladimir Klitschko (1996) and Audley Harrison (2000) having hit the end of the road recently, there are three super heavyweight Olympic gold medalists competing in the pro ranks right now.
Anthony Joshua (2012) is one of the two best heavyweights in the division, Alexander Povetkin (2004) is still near the top.
But what about Frenchman Tony Yoka, who captured gold last year in Rio. So far he is doing well in his pro career.
Tonight, Yoka (now 3-0, 2 KOs) stopped overmatched Belgian Ali "Sultan" Baghouz (10-2-1, 6 KOs) in two rounds.
There were some early, almost negligible signs of struggling, however. Baghouz was coming of his first career loss - a kayo to Ilunga Makabu's young brother, which happened less than a month ago.
And don't forget that Yoka was forced to go distance against someone named Johnathon Rice (7-2-1) in his penultimate fight, and it wasn't as one-sided as many had felt it would have been
Also on the card, WBC #7 bantamweight and former amateur stalwart Nordine Ouabali (13-0, 10 KOs) continued his impressive roll with the seventh-round kayo of Filipino veteran Mark Anthony Geraldo (34-8-3, 15 KOs) to retain his WBC Silver belt for the first time. Ouabali, 31, is a two-time Olympian for France with a close win over Rau'Shee Warren in the London Olympics.
