He also pretty much breezed through the National championships and Olympic Trials this year; he RSC'd pretty much everyone. And Aaron Alafa, the guy he's fighting in that video, is a pretty good fighter; so is Qaid Muhammad, who Rau'shee RSC'd twice at the Olympic Trials.


I thought Alafa had the more polished style. Raushee carried his hands a lot like Charlie Z which wont work in the pros. guys that fight with their hands held low irritate the shit outta me

The reason Rau'shee does thta was because of how utterly he was dominating Alafa. He does it to everyone he fights; but he only lowers his lead hand, his left hand is usually up high enough and he has great reflexes and speed to get out of the way.

yes this kid is very quick and has a quick uppercut and really good footwork.if you are not hitting you are moving.only thing i see is he doesn't keep his hands at home.both arms are dropped.he should get used to keeping his hands up.
