    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.
