Nah mate. Avni Yildirim is definitely not a great boxer! He's not even good!
I think he retires with that $3 million Canelo pay day.
That would be the best choice because he is not going anywhere in his boxing career. Only downwards

With full respect Stephen, I agree with Mikey 💯, which to be fair is very much Not like me... However, Jack Cullen is still ultimately just a decent British Level, Middleweight Boxer, who has improved over recent years, especially after Felix Cash cleaned him out in a fairly competitive scrap, a few years back... If Yildrim was indeed World Level, he would have taken care of business against Cullen on Saturday and most probably Not let it go to the Judges Scorecards either, or at least Won by a clear decision... Fact of the matter was, Yildrim didn't think Cullen, given all Cullen's superior natural advantages he physically had going into the fight, would be as good a Boxer has he showed, because Cullen is indeed a huge Fighter for the Middleweight Division and Yildrim isn't even European Championship level truth be told... He his a pressure fighter, who doesn't know how to effectively cut the Ring off, doesn't have too heavier punch, doesn't throw enough shots across the Rounds, gets tagged easily coming in, by fighters who can Box and has poor footwork and a leaky defense... Definitely not the attributes of a World Level Boxer... Only my opinion! 🤔💯🥊👊🤑🧐💪👍

I have stated all of the above about Avni Yildrim and I still predicted that he would be skilled enough, strong enough, clever enough, powerful enough to beat Jack Cullen on Saturday Evening Pre-Contest... Jack Cullen fought a decent fight and showed his improvements as a Boxer/Fighter... Yildrim was thoroughly disappointing to be fair, especially when you consider the level he has previously fought at... The close shave points victories that Yildrim has had previously against Ryan Ford and a very aged Lolenga Mock (46 Years old at the time I believe) in 2018 are very telling when you look at Yildrim's Pro Boxing Record 🤔💯🥊👊🤑🧐💪👍
