    Josh would pressure him, Kelly had bad fundamentals defensively he was very easy to hit.

    Hamed hit a lot harder than McGuigan.

    His hands were blown to bits, he'd left Ingle and he wasn't the living the life...... so I can't agree that Barerra fought a peak Naz that night

    However, aside from his hands, he only has himself to blame.

    Naz had the power to compete in any era

    When you have get out of jail free card power you don't always need fundamentals.

    You can't explain it to them. Danny Lopez for instance had horrible defense.
    But his equalizer - one punch power.

    I detest the man, but there is no denying he could punch!

    With a whopping 7 kayos I think Josh would be in huge trouble vs Kelly.

    Sanchez destroyed Lopez for that same reason.

    You don't even know what fundamentals are. You get your knowledge from YouTubers who have never even entered a boxing gym.

    Kelly got hit time and again that`s how he picked up his looses, he even said he was his own worst enemy after the Hamed fight, saying he kept brawling too much, his fight IQ was low like Meldrick Taylor`s despite the hand speed.

    Kelly was a multiple golden gloves champion and then a world champion.
    When he lost his title he took a very bad beating and really never was the same. He was still good but not like he was earlier in his career.
    He brawled with Naz too much and that's what he said. He got caught up in a slugfest and got caught.

    But Danny Lopez was a great fighter regardless of the Sanchez,losses.
