Dont confuse unorthodox with bobbins. Sure he gets his feet crossed occasionally but view it functionally - footwork is there to get you in and out of range quickly and to position yourself for shots - he does both pretty well
Nothing to confuse, it’s why he was picked off effortlessly by a guy who had ring rust coming out of every orifice in fury...

How you can evaluate his technical ability as anything other than mediocre is beyond me, but opinion all the same..

Set your clocks for Harrison v Charlo 2 tomoz should be a cracker. Thought Charlo nicked the first fight but all 3 judges gave it TH. Hope he wins again, great trash talker.

Just watched 'I Am Duran' documentary, worth a watch if you haven't seen it. Got Hatton through customs in Panama sharpish.

Absolute fucking pandemonium after JCC Jr quits on the stool after 5 rounds. He came in overweight too. Crowds throwing shit in the ring at Jacobs, who boxed intelligently. They had to hold up round cards to protect him during the interview.




Sums it up
His dad was a warrior, respect to Jacob's did his job.

Didn’t understand why Jacobs took this fight tbh as Chavez jnr is s disgrace to Mexico and especially to his father who looks devastated by his actions . When he fought canelo he basically just turned up for his payday and didn’t even bother . I like Jacobs and I hope he gets another title shot soon

I dont blame Jacobs, decent pay day in a fight he was always going to win. Jnrs fight against Canelo was a joke despite the opposition, he never fancied it & showed from the off.

Who do you fancy later? I'm going for a late Charlo stoppage, hope I'm wrong.

Hope Charlo wins tbh as I like them both and add character to boxing . Didn’t think Harrison won the first but I have a feeling charlo will need to finish it before the judging . Like that Mexican who smashed Charlie Edwards the other month and he won his he title last night

That 'late' shot got Edward's out of jail, no need Agulair was well on top.
