    I am not really sure what is the more impressive. 5 title fights in 21 days or 3 title fights in 21 days with 2 warm ups just to shake off the ring rust?

    Armstrong was a terrific boxer. So nothing surprises me about him.

    Or put another way, Henry Armstrong fought as many times in 21 days as Gary Russell Jr fought in 4 years.
