Power punchers are good, but it takes more than that to make it to the top. I don't see him getting too far, with power alone. But, let's see what happens.
Name me one fighter that has 6 national amature titles and a silver medal at the olympic trials only being a puncher. I am sure as his career unfold we will see that Thurman does what he needs to. Punch, box or a combination of both.
