this was the fault of his handlers. he was already regarded as a light hitter most of his career, let him move up very slowly and take on some "test" competition before getting in there with people that have been at the weight for years.
he took a good fighter at the weight, Burgos, for a warm up and then a very heavy hitter for his next outing.
it's shorting the time in his career where he's earned the spotlight.
For some reason i remember him and Nishioka being good friends as his reason for skipping 122.Flicker maybe knows why he skipped 122?
