Not really, I think he stands in the same spot for about 30 seconds at a time and at other times he has a really odd movement where he waddles like some type of penguin. I will say he's accurate though, he found lovely punches to stop Skelton and Batchelder.

My point is if he had somebody like Povetkin or Arreola even Glazkov on him he'd be in a bit of trouble because he doesn't really fight like he could outbox somebody that will maintain work-rate, the way Batchelder was cutting him down and outmaneouvring him until Pulev found that shot was concerning and at the same time he's not going to stop everyone because he's not a murderous puncher. Something about him as an overall package does not add up to me.
