Joshua Buatsi

The British light-heavyweight made waves at the Olympic Games, battering experienced opponents on his way to a bronze medal in thrilling style. His signature will be highly sought after by professional promoters. He would make the transition to the pro sport in exciting fashion. He wouldn’t need to rush a professional career, if he does go pro. He’s in his early twenties and, with knockout power, an engaging personality, he could go about building a fanbase and bringing the same intensity to the pro sport.
