he still isn't as aggressive as he was before and he would need it against the spoon-wlad can't just jab and throw right hands because Tim is eventually going to time him with a right hand. not only is the old wlad more athletic and faster but hes younger. maybe he let's out openings but the fact is that wlad's opponents aren't good enough to take him out. spoon certainly is.
and bummy I'd say his best wins are over mercer, Bruno, gonzalaz, smith, ribalta, and tubbs. better resume then wlad and vitali
Not necessarily Mercer was already beaten by trial horse Ferguson, Bruno was stiff and green and open to roundhouses, Ribalta was known for his losses, Smith ordinary and Tubbs was no stand-out...I have to say Thompson, Ibragimov,Peter,Austin,Rahman,Chambers,Chagaev,Byrd,Kirk Johnson are at least as good as this batch IMO its 6 of one and half a dozen of the other
