currently hunting for more tape of the guy, but does anyone who's seen much of him think he has any real chance of stopping Jesse Vargas tonight?
not expecting much response, but any informed opinion appreciated.
I've seen him before, he is a big puncher but unrefined. Check out his opposition's records on boxrec too. You will find that his own record is rather deceiving as he fought most of them when they were in "bad" times of their careers.
This is the guy that he fought two fights ago (Daniel Sostre)
2012-11-17 146 Phil Lo Greco loss, TKO, 7
2012-09-15 145 Wale Omotoso
2012-05-24 142½ Danny O'Connor loss, RTD

2011-07-15 141¼ Raymond Serrano loss, UD
2011-04-08 145¼ Damian Frias Draw
The guy he fought before that (Larry Smith)
13 losses in his last 15 fights, Omotoso fought him on fight number 12 of the losing streak
The guy he fought before that was (Nestor Rosas)
He has lost his last 3 fights, 2 by KO and Omotoso was his last loss.
There is a Documentary about his career: The Fighter's Factory
He apparently came from a very rough life and was in a street gang at one time.
