I don't feel sorry for him. He obviously never took his conditioning seriously. Even after the weight the lost for this fight he still came into the ring looking flabby and soft. He looked as though he lost as much muscle as he did fat which tells me he lost weight too fast using too much dieting and not enough conditioning.

As for his boxing ability, not much to get excited about. He is a brawler, with a lazy jab and as he gets tired his punches are wide, sloppy and have nothing on them. Let the first Mexican HW champ be someone who takes their boxing career a little more seriously. Meanwhile, Stiverne is the first Haitian HW champion, so good for him.

I agree. He was never anything special.
