Good to see george in charge of a promising kid like jerkic.
Sounds like the 154lb obsession lives on at the Boxa circus.
Most posters seem to hold the opinion that Choc has been weakened by the move.
No doubt Rocky has the ability to be competitive at 154lbs. The question will be whether or not he loses some of his explosive punching power.
[also munching lettuce leaves and sipping green tea can lose it's appeal]

Comparisons can be made with a fighter like Paul Williams , to back the arguement, who as most know has had success from Welter to Middleweight.
Maybe it'll be Rocky who eventually gets a shot at Austin Trout.

Whatever happens it should be an interesting ride.
