He's a handsome handsome kid -- very articulate -- with a smile that lights up a room, and a terrific sense of humor. At one weigh-in, he spoofed all the snarling lat-spread poses with way-over-the-top versions.
When he's right, Brian's damn impressive -- very fast hands, and KO power in both of'em.
For some strange reason, though he's an accurate puncher, when his opponent dips down, he doesn't do likewise, and his combinations are always to high. He can't seem to make the adjustment.
When he hangs'em-up, he could have a bright future as a color commentator.
