COMMENTS

  1. Can’t wait to see Fortuna a against a quality opponent on HBO. Him against either Russell or Broner would be great. We all know it won’t happen. Especially Russell, who has better pedigree than Fortuna but his handlers do him a disservice be having him face inferior opposition. Worried about Russells development.

  2. Sure would like to see Abdusalamov matched against some of top heavyweight prospects (Mitchell, Fury, Price, etc.). He’d have a big chance against any of them.
