    Filip Hrgovic is a talented heavyweight with a very good amateur background. He stays in shape and is fast for his size. He won a bronze medal, and should have won a silver or gold because he was robbed in the semi-finals against Tony Yoka.

    I hope they don't waste his year fighting tomato cans. He's so talented he doesn't need to fight soft opposition even in his early fights, he should start fighting some durable journeymen.

    Hrgovic (now 3-0, 3 KOs) will be fighting Ireland’s Sean Turner (12-1, 8 KOs) today in a scheduled 8-round fight in Germany.

    Turner is the BoxRec #1 heavyweight from Ireland and rated #48 in the world. He's never been stopped, and should last awhile and give Hrgovic a few rounds of pro experience.

    Hrgovic will be fighting Mexican Filiberto Tovar this Saturday in Germany. Tovar is 9-0, but hasn't fought outside of Mexico and his opposition has been mediocre at best I'd imagine. Hrgovic should walk through this guy pretty quick. I like that he is getting some fights under his belt and is at least fighting guys with winning records.

    Hrgovic won today by TKO and is now 5-0. I'll try to find a video later.

    Mansour is an older, but durable fighter who has fought a few names. This will be a good test for Hrgovic. He is only 26 and is 5-0 as a pro. I like the aggressive step up and hopefully he puts away Mansour.

    Signing to fight Mansour shows that his management team has total confidence in their prospect as Mansour has some quality wins on his boxing resume and a few razor thin losses against top 25ish type guys.

    Of course 40+ heavyweights can fall off a cliff skills wise at any moment but you can't bank on that.

    PS. Mansour who is roughly the same age as Briggs and he has fought ESPN level fighters for much shorter purses than what Briggs would demand to face the same opponents. He's Briggs with a set of balls.

    Hrgovic is big and strong. His punches are powerful, but not very crisp. He paws and pushes. I hope he can work with someone who will help develop more snap. He also keeps his left hand too low. Vitali Klitichko could get away with that, but hey, he was Vitali Klitschko.
