Centeno showed more power than I thought he had. That was quite a one punch knockout he scored over De La Rosa.

I still can't get the Julian Williams fight out of my head when I watch Centeno. Williams was absolutely dominating Centeno and on his way to an easy win when there was an accidental head butt that caused the fight to be stopped just prior to going to the cards. Williams consistently beat Centeno to the punch and Centeno looked like he had no answers for Williams' speed and skill.

Fighters can get better following disappointing performances and I have seen Centeno get better since that Williams fight. He has taken the right steps since but the images of him being out classed by Julian Williams are still there and not going to be forgotten anytime soon.
