He's not a knockout artist but it's clear he's not as feather-fisted as we thought; when you have such an insane work rate, there's going to be a cumulative effect which busts people up. Think Calzaghe once his hands were shot to shit - got by on output. Warrington's output is fucking ridiculous as of late, and he appears to have the fitness to back it up. The Hull Matchroom debut when he was the away fighter was first time I saw him and I thought he could go on to to world level, but never imagined at this level.

Imagine him against LSC - could break the record for punches thrown in a fight.

He's a very good fighter, name another fighter in the division that has two better wins on the trott than that.

Give the man his respect.

Frampton has to say that because he got his arse handed to him.

You could see in the Hyland fight he is not a big puncher like Valdez
I disagree. I don't think Frampton was obligated to admit to having been hurt several times and to emphasise his opponent's surprising power. I say this because there have been millions of fighters throughout history that have lost professional boxing matches and not affored their oppponent the same level of credit.

Nobody has called Warrington a 'big puncher', we are suggesting he is a solid one. A much better puncher than his record to suggest in any case.

I said in his division read my post, name another fighter in his division that has two better wins on the bounce than that?

You said he is being overrated, how is he being overrated?

Valdez's last 3 fights have gone the distance, before those fights he was knocking out fringe contenders. His power isn't all that at world level and if it is he hasn't proved it yet.

Nope.

Simply asking the question but everyone on here as to resort to outrage and drama queen mode.

It's a valid question he hasn't beaten the best three or four fighters in the division.

It's clear to see Valdez is a by far more explosive puncher the Josh. He may have only knocked out fringe contenders as you say but Josh has knocked out no one.

.

He had no choice, he lost every round and thinks of himself as an elite level fighter.
