Eubank Jr's power
Lots of people have been talking about Jr's lack of power and i can see where they are coming from. He doesnt have a great KO percentage this early in his career and a few fights have walked through his shots quite easily.
I think though that it wont be long before he starts developing some pop, he has good speed and is well coordinated. He could do with sitting down on his shots a little more and wanting to hurt his opponents, when he hit Price with uppercuts they seemed to rock the veteran.
Hes also been a victim of tough early matchups which i feel have made him look weaker than he is. Not to mention with his inexperience, from what i know he had few amatuer fights before turning pro, he looks like he is struggling to time his shots.
What do you reckon, is he destined to be a soft puncher? or do you feel his power will come?
