come on bro. he does not fight like a stereotypical mexican fighter. he certainly does potshot. yuriorkis gamboa is not a runner or hugger, and he doesn't have a punch output that can be described as abysmal. in fact, outside of lara in consideration of at or near elite level competition, the cubans seem to get the job done, I mean knockouts and tko's, with less than stellar punch outputs.
