I am 100% positive rocky was asked to immitate sturm ie no head movement, no footwork, and limited defence...even then rocky was all over geale. if you were there for the first two spars, geale got his arse whooped...hard!!

should be a bright future in boxing for Rocky if he's puttin a beat down on Daniel this early into his career.
Sparring isn't really a proper fight though. still impressive from Rocky though.

Of course they are going to say he whooped him. Good bragging rights. The same way mundine fans hang on to the decision 3 years ago. Similarities???

Rocky did quite well, handled himself in good fashion. His lack of head movement and defence was not asked of him. He was a 4 round warm up before doing the main rounds with Ben M and Sakio. Those 2 were not asked to spar anything like Sturm, Ben for his skills, and Sakio because hes a handfull.

No need to get defensive, noone is questioning Rockys skills. He does have a ways to go, nothing more.
