Haha! a Far more thought out reply than I was expecting and quite frankly took the wind out my sails!
However, im not sure how much good training with Sergio can be doing him, as I am sure he is turning up to work each day and getting dropped like a bag of hammers.
Lloyd until David can get that arm extension operation I don't like his chances. If you're a smaller guy to get inside you need to be very elusive James Toney (younger days) kind of fighter. Is David gonna develop some defensive skills or is he purely offensive defense? As SENTRAL says he is only 22 and at least he's saying all the right things.
If you're gonna be a smaller guy in your division you have to develop a tight defense. People think of Tyson as a pure puncher but if you look at his early days he had a very tight defense. I'm not expecting Toney or Tyson type perfomances out of him but he has to get a little slicker if he's going to progress.
Getting beat up every day in the gym may be better for his long term development than just walking in there and being the beast. I guess with all the belts around these days it is not unfeasible that he will pick up a strap one day.
