Default mayweather signs rocky jerkic

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Rocky jerkic has signed with jeff mayweather in las vegas , young prospect Jerkic went 5 and 0 here in australia stopping all opponents with the exception of tough stavros karanicolas in his debut .

With no body willing to fight him unless they were offered a ridiculous sum he has taken his skills to the u.s

What does the future hold for Rocky , this writer believes he has the skills and body type to be a world champion in 3 weight classes .......at least

Hopefully a good move for Rocky. Probably didn't really have much choice if he wants to progress.

Agree there . Watched him spar Geale. Got flair but lacks basics, plenty of speed. His style will fair well in the US, good on him.

Limited head movement and defence, relies on his speed. This works when you fight average opponents at the beginning of your career, not when you fight quality.

So with Rocky's obviously limited skill set , in what areas was Geale able
to dominate him ?

well if hes holding his own with a unified middle weight champ , and has only had 5 pro fights stopping all opponents except karanicolas who is as hard as nails then id say hes doing pretty well.

a good start!

Spot on. And will only improve with the U.S influence and competition over there.
