Tapia should eat this dude for breakfast. Nice comeback fights after that brutal Kirk Johnson loss.

I'd love to see Derek Edwards vs Jesse Hart next. He gave a good account of himself in his last two. Nearly knocking out Korobov in the first and knocking out Badou Jack in the first

Wishing Glen the best! Great guy with wonderful skills. I'm expecting this warrior to move past his lost to Stevenson and learn from that experience. Happy that Freddie has a watchful eye over him as well. Go Glen!!!:boxing:

[QUOT his ballE=Pound4PoundStud;14660229]Mayweather Sr is known for being a defensive trainer, is he not? Floyd Sr's work with Floyd Jr is enough to convince any reasonable man of that. In the area of defense I'll take Floyd Sr over Roach…

I thought Hart was moving up..... fought a good opponent earlier in Findley....guess we going slower than I thought
