Phillyphan overrates Chandler. Morlocks underrates him.
Pretty bold claim? Where exactly do I rate him? And how does that compare to the consensus....not saying I don’t rate him higher than the consensus, but I doubt it is drastically higher. I do rate him highly h2h but that and a $ will get you a bad cup of coffee lol.
Oddly he might not even be in my top 10 favorites, although I do like him. I use him as my avatar because I lost my Willie the worm photo when they redid the site years ago....now I am stuck with this one lol
I just think he was an average bantam who was lucky to fight in the east instead of in bantamweight land. Gomez was great great great and seeing someone think Chandler beats him at 122 is assinine.
I think chandler would give Gomez trouble and give a good account of himself.
However, Gomez was like a cat in there, nimble, precise and accurate, along with huge power. I would not be surprised to see a KO later down the stretch.
Chandler over Wilfredo Gomez isn't the way to bet.....
