    Artur has a great corner.

    And he has late power—somewhat of a rarity in boxing.

    Poor Callum….about to learn that there are levels to this sport.

    Johnson is another example of a guy being rushed along. he’s not ready for Beterbiev, another mismatch.

    The first warning sign that Kovalev wasn’t the second coming of Superboy was when he didn’t take Hopkins out….not the first Ward fight that he won but got his first good old fashioned American cornholin’!

    I really like Beterbiev and hope time/circumstances allow him some big fights
