The more I think about it, I'd have to say yeah. It's the clench after that first right hand Mosley landed in the second round that made me realize it and I've been seeing little things like that ever since. The "tester" jab against Canelo in the first round, for example, fucking brilliant! Now in that interview on the front he says, "I can feel a fighter - it's like a sixth sense. I can make a certain move to make a fighter shoot a shot to burn himself". He's on that next level shit bros.

In as few words as possible: Yes

For people that disagree: What doesn't he know how to do very well.

Finally the definition of savant is wise man/expert in their respective field.

That's not the only definition plus I already defined what I mean by it above.

Sure, also you said he hasn't been KDed or struggled, to be KD or struggled isn't in a boxers business, if you have done either you clearly can't be considered a savant. Sure struggling and being KD is part of the game, but it's usually not good to do either (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
