Amazing educated pressure fighter though
Absolutely.

I'd go as far to say that it's often lost that JCC was a technician at all. Subtle defence, arguably the greatest combination puncher I've ever seen, a complete fighter. There was a sense of inevitably when he fought. His opponents may look as if they are coping well early on but Chavez would always be in control, and it would only be a matter of time before the lead right hands and left hooks to the body took there toll.
