His first performances against Pierre Langlois after the Gavilan fight was pretty underwhelming (thought he lost that one) but I felt he looked much better against Kid Gavilan than he did for Langlois. Might have been that he simply underrated Langlois and didn't train as hard for that one as he could have.
fair enough i think he was just slightly pre-prime and this fight helped him gain alot more experiance. Still a decent win though for Gav.
