Hes a master boxer, excelent defence. great puncher, and very quick and has a high boxing IQ but I feel like he doesnt throw more than a simple 1 2 at a time. Does anyone else feel like he could work on setting up higher punch combinations?

I thought he did a great job, this is just one fight where he couldn't risk running into something by a crafty guy like Burgos who had already hurt him earlier in the fight, boxing fans need to recognize that boxing isn't about throwing combos all the time, Floyd is winning with 1-2 shots so there's no set amount of how many punches, combos or otherwise that defines whether one is boxing or not.

As long as Mikey keeps winning he will be fine whether it's with 1 punch or 2 at a time.

The issue then will be what if your fighting a guy that can punch just as accurately as you, and as fast as you, and react just as fast, for more than 1-2 punches. That's when your in trouble. I'd rather he learns to throw combinations when needed than one day to discover he should of been taught this when some dudes pounding his face in and all he's ever done is throw 1-2 punches.
