I wonder if he's still going to have Freddie Roach as his trainer? I'd imagine there'd be some feuding in Golden Boy Productions if that were the case.

Boxing anymore is all about speed. I dont think he'll face anyone that hits like Fedor, and if the could hit like Fedor they couldnt set it up or sneak it in, since the only thing to worry about in boxing is your opponents left and right hands. You cant fake/throw a kick, or trip, or knee, or takedown, or elbow, or clinch... etc.

Can AA take a beating that he would take in 12 3min rounds he will be getting hit alot more than he normaly does. for some reason Id like to see him get owned by klitschko

He won't have to worry about a takedown or kicks. I think he'll do okay. They'll feed hima bunch of cans to start.

I thought he might reconsider that idea after getting KO'ed by Fedor. Whoever he is fighting by KO.

Yes Freddie is going to train him.

Why would that cause issues?

(I know nothing about boxing)Golden Boy Productions is run by (shockingly) "The Golden Boy" Oscar de la Hoya. Freddie coached Oscar for the Mayweather fight. After he lost, Oscar threw Freddie under the bus, claiming that the loss was all his fault. Freddie then went public & said he knew why Oscar had lost. Then the Manny/Oscar fight rolls around, Manny hires Freddie & Freddie trains Manny to run rings around Oscar.

So, Oscar & Freddie aren't exactly best of buddies.

ohhh yeah.
Thats why after the Manny fight Oscar was like
"You're right Freddie, I don't have it anymore"

"You're right Freddie, I don't have it anymore"Yeah. I mean, I think that Oscar's enough of a business man to not forbid Freddie from training, but it's not like they'll be skipping down the hallways & having picnics together.

AA should really try track and field or a sport that doesn't result in him getting hit. Maybe boxing will be better to him than MMA was cause he blows imo

It has been my opinion that AA is more suited to boxing than MMA. Andrei has good hands, footwork and with only worrying about the standup game minus the leg kicks, elbows, clinches and takedown attempts, he can really show off his speed and power.

Freddie Roach is a pretty good evaluator of talent and trainer. If he thinks AA has a future in boxing, then I would submit that is probably correct.

Here is his record

Look at what you posted.
He has wins over top 10 HW's.

Rothwell, Sylvia, Werdum.
Jake O'Brien was even unbeaten at the time wasn't he?

AA has fought some tough guys, but is definitely inconsistant.
