Nicholson Poulard, Renan St Juste, David Lemieux
These three would be a big step up for Adam.
If he wants to make a name for himself he needs to fight one of these guys in the near future. Lemieux and St Juste might be a little too high priced right now, Poulard would be a good fight for him, good choices.
I don't think they might be big step ups.
If u consider Adam's international experience with world class fighters and he's age.
I agree with your other reasoning a fight between Trupish and Poulard makes sence. They both have something in common, they beat Larry Sharpe.
