    Yeah Pettis is definitely back in form, but heart isn't his greatest attribute.

    Nick is a good dude and an amazing story but I don’t agree with his dig at Pettis.

    It’s very impressive. He’s an inspirational figure to anyone paying attention.

    He’s never been in the position Pettis was in, with the incredible pain of a shattered hand and without the ability to use one of his best weapons going into the third round against someone as skilled, endurant, and dangerous as Ferguson on the other side. Further, Newell developed a game based around missing his hand, Pettis did not.

    My point, since people here are dumb enough to need everything spelled out, is that Newell’s offering a false equivalency based on one similar element, forgetting all of the further hardships Pettis was facing relative to the ones Newell has in his fights.

    I am sure if his opponent was not Ferguson he would continue but against Ferguson you just take a huge beating

    Yeah but he broke his right hand, which is his power hand. What's he supposed to do jab tony?
    Newell has one hand but it's still his power hand so it's easier for him.
