Mbilli's performances against Mohammedi, Makhmudov's breakthrough at the WBC, Spencer who imposed himself in a spectacular way, Butler who came back in force and Bazinyan who was more and more noticed. We find ourselves in a very enviable position at the moment, since each of their performances has given us sizeable arguments to negotiate fights of international stature”, he considered.
