He just seems so poker-faced and conservative and would rather spy for clean openings for his powers shots than take risks making them appear. Like I said, such a contrast to the sparring clip against Rios.
Yeah , I didn't take much from the Rios sparring session other than Mikey keeping a good distance.
Salido's shots to the body and hooks while turning his opponent will also stand out next week.
Judging from the Top Rank media, they both seem healthy, but there's still the weight cutting that needs to be done.
