One of those promising prospects was American Olympian Dominic Breazeale (11-0, 10) who managed to score yet another stoppage as he quickly stopped Devin Vargas (18-4, 7). It was a bout designed to make Breazeale look good and that's just what it did, despite Breazeale not quite showing the polish we'd expect to see him beginning to develop. We're fans of this promising youngster though would like to see him working more on the technical side of his boxing in the next few fights. He has the size and power but but does still seem like a diamond in the rough.
On the same show as Breazeale's victory there was also a win for Michael Hunter (5-0, 3) who managed to take a very solid 8 round shut out over Jerry Forrest (7-2, 6). We're not convinced Hunter is a real Heavyweight but he'll likely grow into one rather than just being a big Cruiserweight, as he is now. Whether his future lies at Cruiserweight or Heavyweight we're very impressed by the fact Hunter has already done an 8 rounder, a very good accomplishment for such a novice pro.
Another prospect that was in action, albeit in Germany, was Dennis Kiy (2-0, 2) who swiftly got rid of Marcel Zeller (24-11, 23) who failed to last a round with Kiy. With Zeller now having 10 stoppage losses it's hard to see what this win really means for Kiy but hopefully it'll see him fighting a decent foe next time out.
One of the bouts that didn't involve a prospect saw Frenchman Fabrice Aurieng (8-7, 3) defeat journeyman Edgars Kalnars (25-30, 16) who retired in round 2.
Another bout that didn't feature a prospect was in Latvia where Lukas Filka (7-4, 6) defeated novice professional Zsolt Magyar (0-2) who retired with an injury in the 4th of a scheduled 6 rounds.
