i mean it does of course but he's def not anywhere near being a "finished product". it's not like if he was at ortiz or khan's stage. he still has a lot of time to grow, improve, and get bigger (cause i def think he'll probably better at WW as he gets older).
I saw it man. I always had some speculation in regards to his defense. The fight exposed a lot and it sucks because he's been my fav prospect. Had me scared.
His best weapon is his jab but he doesn't fire combinations to keep his opponent at distance, even though his jab is beautiful and well timed.
He also leaves himself open when he does fire his combinations, and at times spams the hook which is how he got caught.
What he needs to work on is sitting down on his punches and changing his tempo because he's too predictable. By the second half of the fight his opponent figured his tempo out (it could have been jr was fatigued as well) and kept putting pressure.
If it was 10 round fight I think jr would have been put down for a stoppage. He fights tall which is nice but he has to also give a different look. His camp have some new things to focus on.
his losses to alexander and judah were learning lessons. he now knows not to give rounds away and let people go the distance. his mentality has changed imo. i really hope he gets to fight garcia, rios, and peterson, just to see what he can do.
yeah but in boxing muscles don't mean anything. well maybe power but damn, findley's too short for 168. there's another guy, 5'4 at middleweight. i mentioned him before i think. he fought n'jikam, the french guy quillin is about to face for the vacant wbo title. i have yet to watch the entire fight but they said the little guy gave n'jikam a hell of a fight. possibly a gift even.
