I reckon if Sam fought winky now he probably wouldnt have troubled him as much as he did back then.
But credit does need to go to Sammy's conditioning - he was in F*#king awesome shape, ripped as F*#k and was very well aware of this - almost to the point of being intimidating because of it.
the guy he fought looked to be in terrible shape - really soft around the midsection; there is always a few guys on the contender who drop out early because they arent well conditioned
