    Cool. I'd have to add 'controlling distance' to his list of keys to success against Johnson but at least he seems to fully realize what he is up against. AJ is a technical brute and a serious threat to anyone in any weight class.

    As he alluded to, he will have to fight a very smart fight here. One mistake against Rumble, and it could be game over.

    I think Gus will take this by movement and outboxing Anthony, but he is going to have to fight nearly flawlessly to keep from getting knocked out.

    Yep. Basically just what I said but you did it better. It's the truth.

    I can't believe he's talking about Jones and 'role models' after the stuff he did.

    Yea, I agree. You never know with someone like Rumble. The power he possess could be enough,
    and it's not unlikely at all. And at the same time, I also think Gus should be able to win with that gameplan. Simply put, just being the smarter guy in there.
