My sentiments exactly.
You could say David Price has power or George Groves because that's obvious. But there are fighters like DeGale who's only fought 4 opponents that have lasted the distance and it's evident he doesn't punch that hard.
I think Eubank Jr is a much harder puncher than DeGale and no one seems bothered about DeGale's inability to even throw a punch, let alone his power.
He's got a solid jab and when he throws it, a great uppercut. He's only shown you one side of him and even early on he was working to a gameplan. I can't really think of a time where's he landed clean consecutive shots, he's always throwing one punch and moving.
My main concern with Eubank Jr would be his defensive capabilities.
