From what I saw tonight of Love, it appears he does have the wrinkles but not all of them. Love IMO did not box very well and he made many mistakes that I see needed some immediate correction and for all the boxing experience that Floyd Jr has it appears he was not telling him the necessary corrections he needed in that fight to be more highly effective.

J'Leon went willing to the ropes from the mere pressure/presence of Findley coming forward without even throwing punches, he never used the uppercut enough as the shorter man (Findley) rushed in with his head down, he didn't double his jab nor did he use it enough throughout the fight and often he fought down to the height of his opponent.

Still and all I think he did gain a valuable source of experience from this fight and will be better for it but he will definitely have to step it up on the learning curve if he's gonna wanna compete at the highest levels and face the likes of the Martinez's and maybe even move up to face the Ward's of the divisions.

Your thoughts??

He's only had 15 pro fights. It's supposed to be that way, now if he had a belt or he was 26, 27 etc fights deep then that's an issue. I think he's doing fine and IMO he's the best fighter not named Mayweather in that stable

THIS.

Also, Floyd is not a trainer yet and I am sure for him too it was a learning experience. From what I know it was his first time in the corner and I think he did ok.
