Easy to look good against a guy that looks like me.
He does look like he has some speed.
I like the fact that they have him fighting 5 times (at least) this year. Bringing him along.
i was basing my observation more off of the fact that he looked like what he has been working on with trainer mark breland is starting to be implemented. If you watched him in the olympics or some of his earlier fight he was nothing but a low jab and a big right hand, in this video it looked like he now has a good left hook and his feet underneath him. with an opponent like this he could have came in guns blazing and blasted the guy out but he effectively put the pressure on and did what he was suppose to do against a guy of that caliber. Im not saying this guy is the next American Heavyweight champ but he at least is starting to look like a pro , he was calm, he was throwing in combination, and he wasn't getting touched. something i havent seen from an American Heavyweight in some time. Arreola is garbage, always been garbage, and will always be garbage! I wouldnt worry about him coming in out of shape, the man is 6'7 220, if anything he needs to put another 10 to 20 lbs of muscle on. from a build stance alone this guy has the natural tools to fit into the heavyweight picture of today and be a force and he's only 24 so he's got time to learn
