It’s like he’s on the street playing basketball with all the skills in the world, but he won’t make the league, he has all the skills, crossover, back passes, all those skills. “
The now commentator of ESPN He added that although he believes that Plant he’s a good fighter, but he doesn’t have enough intelligence to defeat someone like Saul.
“He has all the skills, but I see a lot of gaps that he can’t have with Canelo”, He pointed. “Canelo He is very intelligent. You don’t have the intelligence to defeat Canelo. Canelo He can do it all, he can fight inside, he can crush you, he can be defensive, he can counterattack and if you don’t have the intelligence to deal with it and avoid it, you are not going to beat him.
