    JDS needs more than a singular win this time around. That much is easily foretold.

    You are correct. I don't see anyone dethroning JDS as the #2 guys for a while. A fourth fight is pretty much enevitable.

    JDS/Cain saga will be more than a trilogy, I believe. Both men will be in the sport for another 5 years.

    It would be interesting to hear from some judges if they took a fighter keeping their hands down in consideration for scoring. What comes to mind is in the instance of fatigue.

    I agree, but don't you think he would be an absolute nightmare for Alvarez if he carried his hands higher and tightened up his punching?? (As if he wasn't already a nightmare for anyone)

    I just don't get how a coach would let him carry his hands so low against someone who likely wasn't going to shoot a takedown other than out of opportunity or desparation.
    I was actually thinking something very similar to this. I think it has more to do with his explosive power then anything else, when he landed that flying knee it was lightning fast and Eddie did not see that coming at all cause his hands were low to begin with.
