Kondo is completly washed up now so beating him now really isnt anything. Baroni is a short guy at 5'9 to rich franklins 6'1, and franklin is no slouch at striking. Baroni also has NO exp fighting at 205 while franklin does. I mean any guy has a punchers chance, but to say he would definately ko franklin is ignorant.
its not ignorant
baroni is a savage knockout puncher, far more dangerous kncokout puncher than franklin has ever fought.
and rich would box with phil.franklin is the kind of guy that wares you down with strikes gradually,phil is the kinda guy that just flat out puts you away immediately.
Phil's punching power is miles above franklin, his hand speed also miles above franklin, his explosiveness miles above.
franklin would strike with him and get ko'd.he would only need to test the boxing scene for a short while for phil to get him good.
unless franklin just right off the bat start shooting......
but he's said he's not scared to bang with anyone so he would bang.
like i said id give this to phil if the fight was at lhw, if it was at mw i woudlent bet on it.
