Hence, "impressive in parts". But he also lost to several of the top guys he met. Swapped wins and losses with them.

What technical flaws can you see?
Just from memory.

Stance/guard: Back too straight, chin too high, hands too low. Feet perhaps a bit too wide. Too much like a fencer.

Punching: Leaps off the flooor with several of his punches. Leaps in the jab more than stepping in with it.

These were the main things I can remember. Mind you, he was clearly very skilled and crafty in his own way - very much like Graham or Nunn. But I've often seen him named as one of the great textbook technicians, and that's laughable going by that footage.
