What Krasniqi was lacking was the mental toughness to make it in the pros. He quit against Saleta and was unable to ever fully recover from that. He had been plagued by lack of self-confidence ever since. Compare that to Vitali who quit against Byrd but was able to come back from that embarrassing loss.
