If he cant surprise from range sometimes hes going to get beaten up by Klits
I know he has the reach of like a welterweight but he used to have that explosiveness in his legs so he could leap at folks, hope he still has that.
If he is old Im picking Friday by close decision, Friday is probably better than Cisse Salif who Tua only got a MD against
He does have F
huge legs.....however explosive leg speed is another thing now he older
