when he was being trained by joe santiago he was at his worst. i dont understand how you dont see that. he lived and fought another day but was mentally gone till he could bring his confidence back, his physical prime was gone, he took a huge beating. His life was a mess, he had problems with his uncle that were not fixed.
you saw how he fought michael jennings after the fight, did he look good? yes but different and definently a bit more hesitant to pull the trigger. Now compare that to the fight with oktay urkal, judah, mosely, quintana and gomez.
