He does have the power he’s, he’s a heavyweight power, but he’s a cruiserweight size, and you know he has competed.
He has competed as a heavyweight, dangerous combination for for their cruiserweights because they have that in between um.

You want to add about um machine casing, um! No! It’S just that! You know it’s funny for some of these guys that uh that get a late start in the game they get a late start, but at the same time, because of who his brother is, you know he’s kind of kind of had that uh uh um, obviously not Not training, but you know just a little bit of knowledge just being around the older brother and just random house fights i’m assuming the heavyweight champion of the world, i’m assuming he won most of those fights.
But i mean when you’re fighting your older brother at the house, all the time um.
That gives you a little bit of a little bit of experience.
That is not really uh.
It’S not really accounted for um, but you know just looking looking at him.
No but seriously saying like you know, watching his fights here, he he looks kind of like how i describe um shakur stevenson, like he’s more mature than his than his uh.
That is actual experience, and you could tell that by his by his.
You know his good long jab like he.
He knows how to keep the distance with it and um yeah man.
