Bringing the Kid Along
Adapting to the Pro Game in Boxing

I like this kid, James.

How would you recommend bringing him along in the pros?

-Big Ron

Ron, I'm unqualified to comment on this subject, as I have never coached at that level.

I would work on him shifting leads more, so that when he faces a hooker at high level he can peel off to the left, and against a good right hand man, going southpaw and peeling off to the right.

The thing I am most afraid of is him getting caught with a right hand.

His best quality is not clinching much.

Most importantly, he should be coached to go to a high extended guard when hurt. Somebody will rock him some day.

His best match down the road should be Lomachenko
