    It was all of them. It was his money shot and although there is always an element of doubt with the hand wrap allegations, it was still a fucking hard punch.

    He had a beautiful left hook and left uppercut. The speed and timing were amazing and seemed to carry all of his 147-160 lbs into the punch.

    negative on him carrying it up the ranks. He was a killer at the lower divisions, MW, not so much.

    He had a hard left hook but nothing really special.
