Best Chin: Evgeny Gradovich
Gradovich had a chin made of steel. I hit him with some great shots, his ability to recover quickly in both fights was mind-blowing.

Best Jab: Steven Luevano

Best Overall: Jorge Lacervia
Although I had my way with him, Jorge Lacervia was definitely the craftiest of them all. He could punch, could move and could switch hit. Unfortunately for him that night I was one hundred percent on my game.
