JuanMa never corrected the flaws that have plagued him his entire professional career. He does not move his head, too often squares up to his opponents, holds his hands low too often and frequently pulls straight back to avoid punches. This has led to him getting hit a lot when he stepped up in competition and ultimately losing several fights. If he hasn't corrected these flaws by now, he never will.

I think JuanMa is shopworn and is not going to fare well against Vargas.

Vargas is a skilled boxer and sharp puncher. He will find the defensively challenged and shopworn JuanMa an easy target from the opening bell. JuanMa has a lot of heart and won't go down without a fight. But unlike his last fight against an equally shopworn Ponce De Leon, he is in with a skilled young fighter who is getting better with each fight. Its a recipe for disaster for JuanMa and I see him taken out relatively early.

Good read about JuanMa. He is now one easy dropshot. F-Va should have one easy night. Holla!
