    Agreed. I think Ward is a fantastic athlete.

    It's closest you can get to Miller. Toney and Hopkins are both guys that I'd like to see training. But I think James would need a special case that is willing to put up with him, where Hopkins could probably deal with most as long as they had cash.

    Dont think hes got a big speed advantage. A lot of what he does in the clinch is technique but hes definitely a strong dude.

    James works his sparring partners. Those 8 round 3 minute sessions though are better then a lot of fights you will watch. I love the dude but he is admittedly a pain in the ass. Hopkins is awful to deal with all around. This is coming from someone who is cool with the guy. Malik is a friend. Don't like the fact he fucks over his corner when it's time to pay

    I've seen some of his instructional stuff online and the guy is worse than Teddy Atlas with the analogies. The worst.

    I thought the video where he's teaching Rashad Evans about the rhythm he uses to disguise his jab was pretty informative..

    I recall seeing it but can't remember any of the dialogue. That particular clip may have been informative, and the guy clearly knows his stuff as much as anyone... he just tends to ramble on and on, at least from some of his instructional vids on YouTube
