[QUOTE=any craic lad?;13911988]Yamanaka is looking like a very good boxer and he really does have an awesome straight left fast and powerful but I just feel he could vary it up abit against Vic an uppercut could have really stopped…

[QUOTE=RyunosukeRonin;13911945]Yamanaka is an excellent boxer-puncher with a deadly straight left That sure is a high KO% for the guy facing Linares weather or not it's bad opp. remember the last time he fought a guy with a good KO record…
