I'd rank him right there with Chavez, Olivares and Sanchez.

One of my favorite episodes... the first thread I made here was referring to this episode.

If you're talking about the guy "Ivan," he's just talking about basic punches (jab, hook, etc). Not really referring to Finito's technique or strategy.

Couple of things I find interesting:

1. He was inspired by "Rocky" & did the whole drinking eggs like Sly in the movie (my pops did the same w/coke for hangover cures.. ha!).

2. He was always fearful walking down the ring, but not in a bad way. The fear made him aware of the moment & use his training/skills/talent to overcome it.

3. Seems like he was naturally drawn to the sport; taking the subway at 7rs old all by himself to train.

4. Sweet pics w/Tyson, Chavez & I think Taylor.

5 Nacho Beristain stating his fighter won the fight even though it was a draw (like Marquez vs Pac).

Getting long winded so time to stop, but you get the point.

check out the Carlos Zarate episode from the same series. another personal favorite...
