He is very young but his not very muscular arms are quite firm on defense, he can throw good punches, jabs, upercats and quite fast ones.
I am trying to be realistic but i still think that if Haxhi manages to stand the first rounds he will win for sure. He got good stamina, not very powerful punches but ones that can make the damage and earn the points for him. Precise ones.
I still stand on my idea that Haxhi is a potential, probably we will see him after 3 - 4 years boxing for the world title.
Butler is a kind of gatekeeper.If Haxhi beats him convincingly then he for sure has the tools to compete with some of the fighters in the upper echelon of his weight division.
But as I said I very much doubt that he will pass this test successfully.
Butler is a tough customer,and Haxhi is a very inexperienced boxer with a padded record.
