What do you make Tete's performance and his decision to train with Mayweather Sr

SalTnutZ1's picture

His last two fight have been slogs. I know the previous fight, the guy simply wouldn't engage, so not really able to impress in that one. Against Aloyan, I think he underestimated how slippery Aloyan would be, and didn't use his size to establish range enough. He's got a lot of talent, but there is a killer instinct, and some ring craft missing. I think new trainers have the potential to help in certain areas, depending on what needs improvement and the fighter(some fighters won't change no matter who is coaching, they are who they are). I don't think it will hurt him to be apart of the Mayweathers, as they have seen and coached a lot of top tier talent, and at worst for him, he can gain a lot of knowledge from them in terms of how to handle yourself as a champion, and how to pace yourself in the ring. Will it take all of the kinks from his game? Probably not, but if he feels like he is stagnant with his current team, this change could be what he needs. You?

I agree, I also think he worked on rough, ugly tactics you don't get much preparation for in the amateurs, and he stifled his own work, made the fight a mess at times, when really he should have used his jab, been patient, used more feints, which were better tactics when he used them. I agree 100%, if you have two fights in a row, think it is a case of the tactics being wrong, a change is not a bad idea, and training the right way, also, because sometimes fighters can find themselves coaching themselves, their current trainers turning into yes men. I think Aloyan is underrated, and that was a factor, he may be the 5th best in the WBSS in my opinion, but when a fighter had only had 4 fights, has been occuoied at the level Aloyan has fought at, clearly lacks power, I think we can expect more from Tete.

It looks like we might see Whyte vs Chisora II, not bad at all, but I would have preferred to have seen Whyte vs Ortiz, you?

Yeah, I think Ortiz would have been a better litmus test for Whyte for sure, as we've seen enough out of Chisora to know what he is. If Whyte could beat a strong, crafty fighter like Ortiz, who may have the best punch variety in the Heavies(which is expected when you're 50 with 30 years experience...lol jk), to beat him would be the best test of anyone not named Wilder, Joshua, or Fury. But, I'm not mad at the Chisora rematch. Should be a fun fight.

In my opinion, Whyte has earned himself a title shot with the Parker win, if I remember rightly, you don't think he should fight for a world title next, I do to be honest, but I know it is unlikely. Do you think Joshua vs the Wilder vs Fury winner happens in April?, because I don't, I don't think 4 months is enough, and I wouldn't mind seeing the fight late next year, but if the fight doesn't happen, that will be disappointing, and if come 2020, the fight hasn't happened, that will be disappointing as well in my opinion.

I would rather see Parker vs Chisora, Whyte vs Ortiz. Do you think Wilder vs Fury will be a great fight?

Only reason I don't think that Whyte should fight for a title next is because I think the next fight for Joshua and Wilder/Fury winner should be a unification fight. That one, for me, should take precedent, so that it ensures both fighters involved will be in their prime for the first, and likely rematch. I hope if happens in April, and I think the Fury fight will be a good, but quick fight, with the Bomber coming out fairly unscathed, which is why I think April wouldn't be too quick a turn around. Now if that fight somehow ends up as a war, they may need longer, so I guess if Whyte was slipped in come April, that would be the only scenario that I'd be okay with. I'll be disappointed otherwise. I'd like to see one of these guys, Whyte, Chisora, Ortiz, or Parker, fight a Joyce. Would love to see one of them fight an Usyk while he's waiting, from what I predict will be a move up to HW no matter how that Bellew fight goes. I'd also like to see Miller step up and fight one of those guys.

I can't really disagree with that, the best fighting the best, exactly why I am so pro WBSS. Unsacthed against Fury?, or Joshua?

The only thing I'll say is, fighters who earn shots, should get shots, I think definitely, out of everyone outside the top 2, Whyte is the most deserving of a shot, more than Miller, Ortiz. I think Whyte is too much a threat to be any sort of tune up. I suppose these fights can wait, Whyte, Miller, can just keep fighting, keep waiting, and after the Joshua vs Wilder saga is over, they get their shots.

Definitely, I think the Ortiz fight would be great, timing is right for Joyce, but man, what a step up that would be. I think so, even if he loses to Bellew, which is nkt impossible but unlikely, he will still move up because he doesn't have anything else to achieve or prove at 200, the money, the bigger fights are at heavy, and 6'3, never short, he's a big cruiserweight, so he is big enough that he can carry the weight up fairly well, small heavyweights, Tyson, Frazier, Holyfield, as we know, can still do well.

Yeah definitely, his opposition has been poor overall, Duhaupas is very good for tune up, but can't say much for him as the toughest opponent of a career, and Miller hasn't fought anyone better than him, as he is now, not how he was when he fought Wilder. Just like Ortiz, Whyte, maybe Miller could be an option for Joyce, or maybe next year he fights Parker, but I definitely think he should step up before he gets a world title shot, because he is not at the front of the line, I think. Whyte is
