Closing Out 2017: BoxingScene Pound For Pound

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;18372298]That was no draw. Jack should have gotten the win. He's been quietly getting better and better with every fight, in case you haven't noticed. The man has transformed himself into a very complete all-around boxer. And he's proving it…
