    I can never figure out if this dude can punch or not, in some fights, he looks like a puncher & other times he looks like he's throwing pepper shots.

    Can he punch ?

    Not really.

    He overwhelms guys with workrate, like in the Paulie fight.

    No he relies on his speed and volume with just enough power to keep the opponent at bay

    his power is underrated .

    "workrate " and " speed " isn't what dropped maidana in the first round of their fight.

    Nope

    Past fighters he fought said it was the volume of punches and the blitz

    They were never powerful

    Them past fighters were the likes Gomez and domestic fighters a few years ago

    He isn't a huge puncher but to say that he relies purely on volume is totally wrong he can punch just hard enough to hurt you. He dropped Maidana, stopped Judah and stopped Pauli and dropped Collazzo. Yes Judah breaks mentally and he didn't stop Pauli with 1 punch power but Pauli has solid defence and a good chin if you can stop him in any way you aren't featherfisted and Garcia couldn't stop Judah.
    He's kinda like comeback Vitali who isn't really that much of a 1 punch guy but can hurt you and will stop you if he lands often enough

    His speed and catching them when they dont see it is more impressive than his power but he isnt pillow fisted by any stretch.

    It doesn't take huge power to hurt guys with body shots.

    Paulie MAlignaggi has stopped guys too.

    The Salita fight is the only fight where he's steamrolled any ranked guy like that and Salita was no one special.

    His "power" wasn't a factor against Peterson, Garcia, Diaz, etc etc etc.

    yes, but a lot of it is speed, workrate, and precision

    he doesn't put huge power into his shots, but he lands them accurately

    He has KO speed, which is just as good.

    I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be noticing, but Khan looks the worst for wear.
