    I feel his counter punching skills are vastly underrated:

    He was complete, could lead, could counter, could cut the ring off like no other. It’s time to kneel down an pray you get another GGG come along in your lifetime Mark

    Extremely Good,
    but did he die or something?
    Why the past tense?

    He was a natural aggressive counter puncher in the ams and could move quite well. He also had a good jab until Abel decided to turn him into a "mexican" bruiser.

    He was countering canelo, who is very hard to catch clean, let alone counter.

    You might need to go and show this in the British forum to the Jr fan club, show them GGGs ring IQ and timing and then explain why Eubank Jr would still get his uneducated backside handed to him because if Morrison is touching him then GGG caves him in.

    hes the same as he was.
    Just fought better comp. Sergey and canelo.

    His counter punching is underrated. Takes a punch to land the perfect punch.

    His jab never went away? His entire game is based around his jab.

    His countering and timing was what made him one of the best fighters on the planet. He also has great footwork and master of distance. He doesn't need to move fast, he just moves to where he needs to be.
