but lets not get it twisted the guy had zero defense and his chin was strong as they come, power was 100% lethal, reflexes from a different planet, amazing athlete, shud have stepped up when he was hungry.
JMM wud have got knocked out or knocked down a number of times, he always tastes the canvas when he gets hit hard. Naz had balance issues, but the kids chin is one of the strongest ive seen
Haha at Marquez getting knocked out. He may get knocked down from time to time that don't mean you going to knock him out. What I do know is that Naz always had a tough time dealing with boxers, even when he fought that Kelly guy he was made to settle down and stop being so wildly. And when you get Naz to settle down he only relies on trowing one or two punches at a time. Trowing one or two punches at a time won't win you a fight specially with a superb boxer like Marquez.( except if your Mayweather) Naz biggest problem was himself, he was too wild and you can only get away fighting like that against lesser opponents but when you get in the ring with a pure boxer counter puncher that is smarter than you technically and mentally you won't accomplish much. That's why his team didn't want none of Marquez, they knew they wouldn't be able to draw him out of his comfort zone and Marquez would stick to boxing all night.
