Breazeale is still a work in progress. He got hit a lot by Vargas who didn't and thankfully for Breazeale Vargas was not that hard a puncher.

Breazeale held his hands low and pulled straight back with his hands down. And had zero head movement Vargas couldn't miss when he let his hands go. If Breazeale is going to move forward, he badly needs to tighten up his defense and stop making amateurish mistakes. He has talent, can punch some and is athletic. But that will only get him so far in this sport and in the heavyweight division.

There is no question that Breazeale, a former college quarterback, is athletic, but Saturday's fight did indeed expose many of his flaws. He has a good team around him, is getting lots of quality sparring and is not afraid to put in hard work at the gym.

He's more of a suspect now than he is a prospect, but I believe that, in time, he will become a contender.

He stays quite busy, and his management hopes hopes to get him several more bouts before 2014 comes to an end.
