    You rarely see someone from another sport sign with a top manager just like that.

    The same promotion team as Kovalev and Lomachenko.

    Good luck to him hopefully he does well. The problem is boxing is not like Kickboxing or MMA. The competition in boxing is like MuayThai in the Thai stadiums and a lot of the more successful fighters start in their teens or younger. Its very unlikely someone making this transition at 25 is going to have much success but you never know.

    Labs don't build skill and experience

    I didnt watch the fight but Gogokhia is now 3-0 in boxing tonight.

    However he just got a split decision against someone who is 5-10

    Not sure how big of a future he has in boxing.

    I watched the fight and it was only a split decision because one judge must've been watching some other fight or netflix or something idk. 60-54 59-55 55-59 and basically all the rounds were easy for Enriko.

    He's mostly a puncher, right? I remember Nagbe pretty much outclassed him.
