Y think the best example succes story is evandr holyfield… he moved up from cruizer weight to heavyweight and became a legend had a very good iron chin and was very tough … a for cruizerweight to win a heavyweight titlethese days he must have a good chin ….Posted December 31, 2012 4:59 pm
Ernie – true words.
KMSTAR – disagree, HW div. is as strong as ever. Competition is truly global. If HW was so weak why do all of these moving up CWs (and small HWs) fail. The biggest “success” has been Haye with his controversial win vs Valuev.
However Haye would have beaten many top HWs from past eras.Posted December 28, 2012 5:42 pm
Kayode is going to get Starched by these huge Heavyweights..Posted December 28, 2012 4:37 pm
Heavyweight a weak division but with Kayode getting stunned by Tarver, I don’t think he will be able to take a proper shot in the division.Posted December 28, 2012 2:00 pm

Who can blame a kid for trying to make a buck? So many fighters come from third world countries and even the poorest parts of ours. Some fans don’t understand this and think all fighters must have a legacy and make a statement. It’s so tough to be a top fighter, get a break then battle the corrupt promoters, then have to continue on after their prime to feed their family. It’s a hard life and as we know, very few make it.Posted December 28, 2012 12:42 pm
The guy is ststrong but at his current weight but at Heavyweight he is going to get Killed facing these huge Heavyweights..Posted December 28, 2012 12:37 pm
Finally another character we need more guys like thisPosted December 28, 2012 12:27 pm
The guy hasn’t even won a world title at cruiserweight. A draw with Tarver is nice but why not try to win a title before you go up in weight?Posted December 28, 2012 9:20 am
More the merryer. I thinks he can play with the big boys fine. Whether he has given up a title chance by moving up remains to be seenPosted December 28, 2012 8:48 am
Too many cruisers trying to make a buck. When more cruisers get their butts kicked in the heavies, two things might happen; they wisely go back to cruiser or the door opens up for a “heavyweight division and a super heavyweight division” . . . Please no, cruisers go back to cruiser weight. Not another division . . .Posted December 28, 2012 7:27 am

Lateef Kayode (18-0, 14 KOs) is mabey a promising heavyweight material ti view but he has to probe himself in the ring against some decent opponents before we know. Mabey he will be up for a world title shot against the champ Wladimir Klitschko before the champ retires. I would not bet any money on it but mabey as an last minuite replacment if Alexander Povetkin, Tyson Fury, David Price etc would chicken themself out of a potentail future fight.Posted December 28, 2012 7:04 am
Mormeck answered the call when #1-#12 were hiding. Both Vitali and Wladimir have a good list of willing HWs who are winning right now. Pulev, Fury, Solis, Potvetkin, Banks and Arreola for Wladimir and Haye, Stiverne, Fury, Banks, Arreola, Chagaev, and Charr for Vitali.
He’s busy with Larry Donald about that time. I was thinking the same thing though…..lolol……Looks like Firtha or Maddalone with be getting a ring.Posted December 28, 2012 6:39 am
Too small, so hell be guaranteed a klit shot lolPosted December 28, 2012 5:36 am
Let me guess, drum roll . . . Jason Gavern anyone?Posted December 27, 2012 11:09 pm
GOOD luck to him.Posted December 27, 2012 10:20 pm
Bring on Kayode vs Adamek in February.Posted December 27, 2012 8:52 pm
