How do you war with one of the best defences i've ever seen in boxing...He doesn't get involved in wars.
I give Diaz a chance but in all likelyhood Kindelan will just be too elusive.
There is no lightweight from the last 15 years pro or amateur who is skilled as Kindelan. The Kindelan who faced Khan was a shadow of himself, and I include the olympic final he won so easily. That is why Khan will have to wait a while til he fights someone on his level. Although the transition from am to pro does make a difference, but not in skill levels.
They are all P4P and/or great fighters. Kindelan is an amateur. I'd hate to see how he'd hold up with Corrales, Freitas and Castillo coming for him. Kindelan is talented but the pros is a different ball game.
By the way I just realised we are talking about Mario Kindelan. For some reason up until now I thought we were talking about the Aussie who won the WBO title. His name escapes me.
Nevertheless, Kindelan is very talented and skilled but don't even think about him in the pros. The pros is a different ball game. Does he have the chin, the heart, can he go 12, can he take the body attack, does he have the mental smarts etc
