I agree. Then again, a fighter can look great in the gym but when he's been buzzed for real, he may panic and forget everything they taught him in the gym. I don't know.
I like Michell; he's a decent man and by all accounts a good one, but being a nice guy doesn't make one a good fighter. He needs to sit down with his team and decide if boxing really something he wants to carry on with.
I can't fault his management team regarding choice of opponent. Banks was a good choice. It just backfired...
