Diaconu looked very solid tonight. I doubt many of you saw it but if you did DAAAAAMN. I think he could be a force to be reckoned with in the next two/three years at that weight. He beat a nice Rico Hoye who had beaten either Montell Griffin. Diaconu ain't no punk so beware at light heavy. 300 amateur fights means something. :) I predict him in the top 8 within a year.

Hoye looked like **** from the opening bell.

yeah he didnt look like crap but dianco looked awesome. I see him having problems with chad dawson though. Woudl love to see him fight paul briggs. That would be an all out slugfest.

Agreed,Erik. I don't know that Hoye ever recovered from the Clinton Woods KO and it seemed from the start that Diancou was just sweeping up what was left. Impressive,but did he beat Rico Hoye or a boxing bag facsimile? Either way,good win for Adrian and welcome to the big time.

Where did this guy come from?!?! He popped out of nowhere and now is a serious contender in my opinion. I would say he needs a bit more experience but 300 amateur fights? I know the pro game is another ballpark and after 2 to 3 more pro fights I think he will definitely crack the top 8.

I want to see how well he can take a punch.

Yea I caught that part Erik I was just suprised that I have never heard of him and he came in looking that good. I was somewhat upset, like I missed something. The guy is solid imo and will stir things up soon.

A champ in that weight class is going to look at this guy and think that its a easy win against a guy with a good record and that champ is going to get their ass whipped.
