Ok, I think he's a boxer that needs his size to be an advantage. He had success at Light Middle being the bigger man, boxing from the outside letting his opponent make mistakes and punishing them. Although he started slow against Webb, he caught him with a few good clean rights and then comprehensively out boxed him until the stoppage.

But then against Rose, some one who is quite big for a Light Middle, he looked very ordinary. He couldn't land his own jab nor get past Rose's. Although Rose is not a known puncher, he didn't really force the fight or take any risks.

Hopefully he would have improved during his haitus but I think there is a little too much competition in this division domestically for him, Saunders, Blackwell, Eubank Jr, Ryder, O'Kane, Hope and McEwan. Plus if you add the big guns Murray, Macklin and Barker. I don't see him jumping in and making too much of a splash.
