Showed he has a fairly reliable chin and a big heart.There is no quit in the kid,but that could be dangerous to his health with his limited skillset.

He has no defense. He was eating Delvins overhand right hands like turkey Thanksgiving. He wasn't in Oklahoma beating up on ranchhands and hillbillies anymore. He needs just to learn basic things like head, upperbody movement, fighting behind a jab, putting your hands up, tuck in your chin, etc. He couldn't even throw a decent combination. He needs like a Robert Garcia bad.

So stuipid! What was his corner doing? Tahdooahnippah was keeping his left arm low all night and took one right hooks all night long! Did they think that he had the movement and reflexes do avoid this punch? No he had not! Tahdooahnippah should had fight the Uli Wegner style hide behind a double guard and than try to get your punches.. not walking around with no guard at all and no movement.

The kid was dead game. Is it possible Delvin was running out of steam beating on him?

It sucks when you see a guy with a good chin and tons of hearts, with what looks to be decent athletic ability with a fighters heart be so mis-managed and trained.

That's what poor training, **** matchmaking, and low-leveling sparring do to a fighter. Sucks, because there's promise there but he's so far in I doubt he'd be able to learn how to actually box.

They do such a disservice to these guys keeping them locked away fighting nobodies. All it would take is a couple days in a real gym for them to see they had a **** load to learn.. and I bet they never even did that for him.

Tessitore mentioned he fought a guy making his pro debut five fights ago

What in the **** kind of matchmaking is that

He doesn't even have a present how would he have a future. Before the fight when they showed highlights of his last fight, he was throwing punches like that ***got Charlie Z for ****s sake.

No. Horrible defense keeping his hands up and far apart. Also, he has one of the slowest right hands I've ever seen in my life.

Of any JMW's or MW's with good records on the planet that I had to fight, I would pick George Tahd. and would feel confident in at least showing a couple successful moves on him before getting knocked out cold.

No, no future outside of Oklahoma and previous opposition.
