Not to mention guys like Juanma Lopez, Wilfredo Vazquez Jr, Rocky Martinez and many others that will be potentialy good fights once he matures.
Im pretty impressed with the kid, he was my favorite rican boxer at the last olympics, sure enough I knew he was going to lose against Lomachenko but he didnt look that bad at all and stood his ground at times against the world's best amateur boxer.
Pretty excited to see this kid turn pro already, he got nice reach and height and is pretty athletic for such a lanky kid, his speed and timing are the cherry on top along with his poise which shows you how mature he is for a kid with his age.
Let's hope for the kid to stay on track, he has future multi division world champion written all over him.
