Think that was a job made a great deal harder, if anyone deserves credit it's Fitzgerald for a great effort and will to win but ''progression'' sorry Adam. Andy was beating a world champion last year before he was stopped. Tonight he laboured to victory against a guy 3 levels and then some below.
But yeah nice and calm in corner..
Fitzgerald brought it and Lee didnt seem to be listening attentively anyway. He was clumsy and lazy and Fitz was all over it.
I actually think Booth is a top trainer when the fighter listens with 100% concentration, he is a calming and soothing voice. Its the reason why Groves has done as well as he has done, some fighters need to be spoon fed like babies. Some like to listen to themselves more before "outside" advice.
