The only plus to booth is his tactical thinking. Ie, the way Groves came out and stuck behind the jab against Degale for the win. Even then it was razor thin and some people think chunky should have won.
I'm still undecided about Booth as a trainer. It's too early to comment based on Lee & Selchuk's one bout each. And Haye went the distance with Wlad so his defence isn't terrible although it could be better.
But Booth's strength is in installing some mental fortitude that maybe Kevin has been missing.
