Hope to see him beat Stevenson in the pro's as well!
He won't. He tends to get sloppy, and isn't really fast enough to be able to get away with it in the pros. His entire approach is to sit in front of you and wait to catch you after you finish throwing. Stevenson is too sharp

By the time these guys are built up and "ready" to fight each other we're 5 years further.
Seeing as how young Stevenson is he will probably grow into a higher weight class too.

Top Rank don't usually get things wrong, but there's no reason why that fight should have been over four rounds. Such a short distance means one mistake, such as the knockdown Ramirez suffered in the first few seconds of the fight, can effectively decide a fight. If it's an eight rounder for example, there's plenty of time for Ramirez to get back into it without panic setting in, the game plan out the window etc.

Interesting point. Never thought of that before. You will want to make sure you're in tip top shape to actually go 6 or 8 rounds.

He lost some shine, but what now?

Will he be back? Will he achieve the success that was predicted?

Hopefully this shock will get his head back into the game and focus on the craft after all the rumours of him not showing up to train

I'm looking forward to see who his next opponent will be and how many rounds it's gonna be.
This 1st opponent's record was terrible, will his next opponent have a 0-15 record now that he lost? :lol:

One could absolutely argue that he won the next/last 3 rounds. That 4-0 score is criminal.
