He has been in some tough fights, is a 45 fight vet, and has been very inactive other than that easy blow out of a totally shot Izzy.
He's not nearly inactive as Mosley when he fought Floyd. Did you consider Mosley "old" & "shop worn" when he fought Floyd? Did you predict that mismatch? he fought twice in 07 in wars, that 3rd war in 08, took a MUCH MUCH needed break after those wars to recover and had a keep busy fight against a featherweight
who wasn't a top featherweight but had a decent record but was coming off losses but blew him out like he was suppose too.
Then took some more reasonable time off before the fourth fight and blew him out. He hasn't shown any sign whatsoever of rust or being "old" and after those wars took the break to recover, blew out the "shot" Izzy which according to your opinion should have happened, like what the **** else do you want from this guy? I'll put points on him and everything. I'm going to have to respectfully disagree here my dude because you lack the evidence. Your entitled to your opinion but mine just differs. Rafael is a legit threat and will beat him, I can feel it!
