typical mexican style brawler. plenty of offense....very little defense. what happens when they put him in front of someone that has some defense that will make him miss? he's been matched very favorably and has been doing exactly what needs to be done with the opposition. him steam rolling abner cotto wasn't impressive to me. cotto looked like a lamb brought in for slaughter.
Obviously you haven't seen enough of him to know that he does have great defense when he has to use it, he hasn't been in a fight where any fighter has really made him have to use his defense because he is tough enough to stand and trade when he needs to by giving it and taking it but make no mistake this kid can shoulder roll with the best of them.
I've seen fights of his where he has used his shoulder roll, block and slip punches whenever he feels like it but he's so bad @$$ that he simply says to his opponents "go ahead hit me with your best shot(s), I'm gonna take it and give you back a taste of your own medicine".
This kid is the truth but because he's been so dominant we haven't had a chance to really see him show all what he can do though I've seen it in some of his bouts.
