I think it may be a case of what they have learnt so far in the Pro's, James is still very amateurish in some of the things he does and I can't help but think it is to do with the trainer he is with?
McDonnell was always more credited as a fitness trainer more than a technical coach, now despite what people may or may not think of Booth as a person, his training methods and the mental preparation he installs in his fighters is really good and he uses intelligence in his training.
That is why Groves is looking by far the better of the two, they will always be evenly matched but since 2008 one has progressed more than the other.
