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??

And you have to take into consideration Findley. He deserves credit as well. He was a tough competitor and he's been in there with the best. He's solid opposition. He fought a little dirty but hes not a walk in the park. Yes J'Live could've done better but at the same token I don't think that would've made the fight anyless difficult than it was. Understand Love was training for a southpaw that pulled out and took Findley on about a weeks notice. Findley is a world class fighter. This step up was a good experience for Floyd as a Trainer and Love as a fighter.

Maybe I was a little hard about the way I said what I did concerning this kid but what I stated is true, Findley was tough but that was about the sum of it/he showed very little skill other than cutting off the ring (he was great at that). He basically hasn't improved since the Lamar Harris fight but i guess it won't matter much until we get to see him getting exposed by other fighters and fighting in the same manner enough to realize that he isn't improving.

Hopefully he will improve but time will tell.
