    This guy is a stud, and I'm not talking about his boxing ability alone. He's a very good bloke, he seems an insightful and reflective kind of guy. He strikes me as a real thinking man, an intellectual of the ring if you will, I highly recommend you watch his channel. His dream journals aren't exactly eventful or boisterous but they provide a candid view of his psyche that I think would provide motivation for many as he's quite the role model to have. And I must repeat that he really comes across as a genuinely great guy in his videos, I'd find it hard not to root for him, which I absolutely do. Please give his latest one a watch to see his reaction to getting in the final if it piques your interest.

    I do think it will be more competitive then their previousmatchup. Torrez needs to hit that guy in the balls everytime he pulls behind his head.

    Torrez is in for a beatdown. Another KTFO.

    He was lucky he didn't get seriously injured from the last KO, let's hope he's fortunate again when he gets stopped this time.

    Does he actually describe a dream or what? Seemed like he was just muttering about the tournament situation.

    I still like him though, a bit of a throwback all around. He looks like he could he an extra in Dazed and Confused or Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

    Can't see Torrez Jr beating Jalolov. He laid a heck of a nice beatdown on Kunkabayev....but he's not going to be landing those overhand lefts on Jalolov...not least because he's going to get his head taken clean off trying to close the distance to do it!

    I like watching Torrez Jr fight...but his game won't work against Jalolov.

    Jalolov isn't a guy who dips his head much. He's very upright.

    Jalolov is pretty basic...but he's really, really rangey, moves very well, has very good timing, and (obviously) tons of power.

    At least Clarke showed that he can be hurt. Obviously, the same is true of Torrez Jr, though!

    Torrez is hands down the biggest POS in amateur boxing. He's a right nasty piece of works and I hope Jalolov lays him out cold on his face this time, preferably in the dying seconds of the final round when he's behind on points and Torrez is seconds away from redemption and winning that gold medal and if he does it couldn't happen to a nicer fellow because Torrez is an absolute scumbag of the highest order.

    OK, I lied again. Torrez does come across as a genuinely nice chap and I don't want to see him laid out cold again.

    I think it's more like a catalogue of his experience towards achieving his dream. At least that's the context in which the title would make sense so I'd assume so. Otherwise it's a dumb title I agree. I like his focus, seems really dialled in. 'Tis a shame he's facing such a monster but either way it goes I think he'll do well in the pros in the near future.

    Yeah I knew really quickly this had to be a troll but I commend the commitment to the spiel, kudos.
