Is it me, or these fighters with power who are being shoved down our throats, absolutely suck when they're in the there with a guy who's either composed, can take their punch, is more intelligent, or all of the above.

We saw it last week when Angelo Santana got his clock cleaned by Bahodir Mamadjonov, Ismayl Sillakh got floored last year, Dulorme got his little world rocked and finished by Abregu, and the list goes on.

How do you feel about fighters with "power" and which new ones aren't you sold on???

I'll go ahead and kick it off...

Truthfully, I'm not sold on Javier Fortuna like most are. After witnessing him knock out this young guy in FNF, which required the paramedics to stroll him out of the ring, c'mon man.

As Atlas kept mentioning, Zamudio had no business being in the ring with this guy. His last fight against Hyland on the Pac/JMM IV card, he looked very ordinary when he couldn't land those huge shots.

I mean this dude had a shitty camp (according to promoter) and didn't make weight yesterday. He came out guns blazing in this fight, as if he knew that he was gonna look bad if the fight went on longer.

I'm just not sold on this guy, and his failure to make weight let's me know that he isn't what he's hyped up to be. He hangs on Sergio's nuts, and he looks like he knows that a loss is around the corner for him.

I have been waiting to compare Blake Griffin with boxing. Blake is an exciting player and when he is against older defenders and teams that do not box out then he looks like superman. The moment he played against Zach Randolph he and Marc Gasol guys who were tough in the paint, he was done! Same thing with "power" punchers. If the only thing they are looking for is that big shot against skilled fighters then they will be in for a long night. The skill fighter will know not be in range of getting clocked. She Hopkins vs. Cloud, he was looking for that one shot. Just like P Williams and Sergio, P Williams was looking for that big shot. Mike Tyson is another one when he fought Lewis. Pacquiao and Bradley and Marquez. He got his shit cleaned. Power doesn't make you good. Like Roger Mayweather said "speed don't mean shit if you do not know how to use it." Same can be said with power. If that is all you got then you are limited.
