And I wonder who gave him that bad advice?

Of course it was Pops JCCS. But it was some very good “bad advice.” The best.

When it comes to 3g, JCCJ is still a baby bird in the nest. Holla!

The Good Doctor says:

I actually think it was good advice. Jr. would get mauled against GGG. That mauling would crush any bargaining power he could have against Canelo, Sergio rematch, Cotto, or even Ward. Chances are he could squeeze more lucrative contracts out of the aforementioned and does not want to destroy that possibility with a loss to a very dangerous guy who does not quite have the cache yet that alot of other established fighters do.

I think a shadow creeped up on them and whispered in Jr and Sr's ears

The Shadow says:

Billy Keane, says Bob Arum on the video. He keeps saying Keane.
