This kid's power isn't what people think it is.

His skills are also atrocious.

He may wrest a title from someone like a K9 or a Rigoberto Alvarez or something, but don't think for a second he'll ever become one of the sport's elite.

He's a boxer-puncher who can't really box and doesn't have much more than an average punch, and has a shitty attitude with delusions of grandeur far beyond the scope of his limited abilities.


I don't care how many people he kayoed in the amateurs or so far on the way up the pro ranks - who the **** were they? His reputation as a knockout artist is even more inflated than Valero's was.

He stepped up to D+ level against Lora and didn't really display this savage one-punch power everyone's been harping about for a couple of years. He labored toward the stoppage after landing shitloads of punches.

He is a can crusher with a flashy boisterous personality, nothing more.

I am at a loss of words. I agree he is a talker that can annoy some people but imo he is the real deal. Lora was a face first Mexican brawler who had a decent chin. Lora was able to take a lot of serious damage before literally quitting. Rare you see a Mexican slugger just say no mas.
