He didn't that have killer instinct at the highest possible level. He never seemed like he could ever take control against someone like Harada.

I think he falls short due to his attributes in comparison with a Jofre or Harada. He could compete well against anyone other than them two around bantamweight.

I think his career was on the right track but Harada sort of knocked it off the rails.

I don't think he would have ever beat him on any given night. Not even if it was in Rudkin's hometown.

Eder beat him twice imo. I believe homecooking won Harada the fights. Even though they were fairly close fights. The first one was anyway.

I'd say he came out of the Harada fight a better fighter for the experience.
