I guess he could be kinda sloppy, offensively and defensively. His offense didn't look that purposeful all the time. Sometimes he boxed when he needed to fight, sometimes he fought when he needed to box. He could be kinda mechanical, like he's not thinking and setting his opponent up as much as just going through the motions. I don't know, I'm still trying to figure out what's wrong with him, or me.

No, that's fair. I'm the same way with Vicente Saldivar. For the life of me, I just don't see this greatness everyone else gushes about. On film, he seems decidedly ordinary to me. I know he's great and the problem lies more with me than anything, but I just don't see it at all.
