Every time you watch this kid fight, he’s very, very talented.
You know, honestly, you can watch, highlight reels of guys swinging us so hard enough to get the guy cold, but not hard enough to even hit him.
You know what i mean he just ducks and dodges and eludes these shots from these guys, and you can watch highlight reels of you know five minutes three minutes of him just ducking opponents with with you know, with everything they’re throwing at him.
This kid he’s great to watch.
