    Default Richard Torrez Jr. under Freddie Roach?

    How do you think Torrez would do with Roach as his trainer? Could Roach turn him into a HW Pacquiao?

    Excuse my ignorance, but who does Freddie Roach train nowadays? Does he have any stars? Don’t know why but I was under the impression that he was old news nowadays.
    Former Undisputed 4 belt Prediction champion. Still P4P and People’s Champion.

    I don't think Torrez is the heavyweight of the future. I just don't think he has the size or ability to compete with the HW's we know today. jmo...

    Why do I keep reading about Torrez not having enough size?

    Last I checked, his HW fights have been pretty consistently around 225. Ok... he's 6'-2". A bit short compared to a behemoth like Fury. But (and I'm NOT comparing, people) isn't Usyk just an inch taller? He's doing pretty well for himself, isn't he?

    With only 3 pro fights to his name, it's waaayyy too early to assume anything about Torrez. He's still plenty raw and obviously needs a lot more rounds and MUCH better opposition.

    One thing I don't think anyone will question for the time being is his power, though.

    They're going to Berlanga this guy. I get it..power and splatting out guys sell. But these wwe type squash matches re aired and spotlighted 24-7 today do nothing but kneecap natual development.
