    Whitaker not being able to stop Low level fighters is a sign he aint going to be Prince Naseem Hamed.

    Im also sure in my mind you dont get away with that **** in the LHW division.

    Something tells me he's packing glass. I expect him to take a hard canvas nap as soon as he faces a live body.

    Not my thing. Disrespectful. I hope he gets flatlined while doing that.

    Looking forward to this:

    He’ll get found out sooner rather than later.

    He is definitely more skilled than Naz

    Nas had crushing K.O power and an iron chin, its disrespectful to compare the 2. This guy will not make it at world level. Not saying he is a complete fraud, but if he steps up he will get seriously hurt.

    Naz had a good career before the wheels came off.....thats not happening for Whittaker imo!! He will be found out much quicker

    Wasn't impressed by his performance this weekend. His best asset is his ability to promote himself but I don't think he has the skills to back it up. He leaves himself too open to be hit and while he does know how to counter, he doesn't do it enough. He's another flashy fighter who looks great when he's allowed to do what he likes but when he's made to fight, I suspect he'll get exposed.

    It's a shame you see fighters like this all the time, speed, reflexes, reach but they don't have the actual skills or ring IQ to match. Talent alone only gets you so far, if you're protected like Adrien Broner you can win titles vs weak opposition but the moment you step up and fight someone genuinely world class you'll get found out.

    The show boating feels so forced and out of place too

    Naz it felt natural when he did it before reverting back to boxing

    Whittakers fights feel very disjointed to watch

    No, Lyndon is pretty poor, would be a close fight though.

    Naz was a better finisher.

    Looked supreme in the Ams. Haven't been too arsed to watch him show boat in the pros vs uber drivers.

    Hopefully Whittaker fights Paulo Aukoso at some point who coincidently also has a cockiness problem
