If anyone was expecting Silvio Samuel to suffer after competing in two contests in as many days, they were sorely mistaken. Samuel, coming off a win last night in the Under 210-pound class, hung tough with the big boys and appears to be in the lead after the prejudging at the main event of the Europa Super Show on Saturday afternoon.
Will Harris and Bill Wilmore are the two competitors with the best chance to prevent Samuel from notching back-to-back wins, with Harris holding the slight edge. Harris took the stage in Dallas in his best-ever condition since turning pro by winning the heavyweight class at the 2004 USAs.
Quincy Taylor, who entered as one of the pre-contest favorites, came in holding too much water and will find himself outside the top three.
