He got knocked out on his first try to connect a real punch. One short right and he was out. I have been following him since he turned pro and I believe I watch all his fights. He has power but I always questioned his defense and his chin. In my opinion, at the top level, you need to be able to take a punch. You are not going to beat a guy like Charlo without getting hit yourself.
The same thing happened to Trout last night. He started out great connecting well but he cannot take a punch. His legs were spaghettis every time he get tagged.
If you cannot take a punch, every time you stand your ground to trade, you lose even if you outland your opponent 10 to 1. The trouble is you cannot win a boxing fight by landing any punches.
