He looks good, and has all the right attributes, but my skepticism is related to his ability once he starts getting hit back. I thought he looked poor against Quintero and poor against De Leon, so there is definitely reason for concern against opponents who dish it back.
People were saying DeMarco had a similar style to PDL. He fought very silly though that night. Ponce is a smarter fighter than ADM which is why he looked so much worse against him.
