No Mike as his trainer, Not a blackzillian anymore and cut his ties with Roberto!

it's not the size of his muscles or how much he weighs on the scale. It's partially his cardio but mostly his defense and how he crumbles when he gets hurt. His entire career has been following the same patterns

Makes you wonder if he will be settled in enough with his new team in order for there to be positive improvement made technique wise. I'm sure he's working hard fitness wise but how sharp will his stand up be? I think Mike was great for bringing out the aggression in the Reem but that leads to him gassing if he doesn't get the KO relatively soon. There seems to be a lot of question marks with him coming into this fight regarding his camp. I don't know why he didn't try to make it work with the Blackzillians. He needs boxing improvements and Pedro Diaz would be a good place to start.

You must be high if you don't think that he was on stuff when he hit 230, like I said, when he fought Chuck in '03, he was GAINING weight to make 203, but he became even bigger by upping the dosage on his stuff. It wasn't like he was cutting huge amounts of weight to get down to 203 back then. In 2005 and 2006, he was already on stuff, it's not hard to tell if you are a former user yourself.

He lost the first fight against Werdum because of bad cardio and he wasnt cutting any weight. As for the 2nd fight against Sergei, imo he lost that one mostly because of bad cardio but if someone wants to think it was the punishment he took then thats fine, impossible to say.
