Yeah, he's pretty sound from a technical point of view.
Heavy-handed, solid defense.
I don't know about his chin though.
Workrate is definitely his biggest weakness - makes weight-drained 140 pound Cotto look like Pryor.
It's his first big fight and first step up in class - he's still a work in progress - so it will be interesting to see what he learned from Trout's fight.
