    I just discovered this scrolling through Wikipedia's "notable boxing families."

    I didn't post him fighting because the matchmaking has been soft up to this point, but you can check it on youtube.... I felt like I could take my amateur heavyweight self and get in their and get busier than what he's facing. :rolleyes:


    Despite he started training at 26, I'm looking forward to seeing how he develops. He's got that good pedigree from his dad as one of the all-time greats, has vast wealth backing his career which gives him loads of free time to train AND have access to pay for great trainers/sparring partners, well educated and intelligent, his approach seems to be great.

    Kind of like a Julio Caesar Chavez Jr. situation minus the childish antics.

    He obviously has been living a sheltered life.

    I think Junior Dos Santos could knock him out.

    I would predict a split decision for JDS.

    Had a look at his record, they are bringing him up slow, all his fights are against guys with losing records.

    He's been boxing for 3 years now, 16 fights, maybe it's time they fix him up with someone half decent, at least with someone that has a winning record.

    Why, because he doesn't talk like something that just crawled out of the gutter? That's how all fighters should conduct themselves. Good on him.

    He has fights against some fat guys on YouTube, but honestly the opposition was so poor that it is not even worth the effort to copy a clip from there and paste it here.

    It's an interesting business model though.

    Not saying that Foreman's son is doing this, It'd be an interesting business model to take a celebrity, train them to box and then sell tickets against poor opposition a few times per year.
