drian "golden fist" francisco is another fighter who is overhyped, match him any descent boxer and for sure he will lose.

he lacks technical skills,no stamina and easy to get hit since he doesnt move his head.

all his opponents are patsies, so he is not battle tested.

his next fight might be with Hugo Cazares for the world title, and we will witness another filipino prospect be defeated.

perhaps Donaire Sr. can train him



I don't think Drian is overrated. TS, maybe you're overacting that he is overhyped. He is not even hyped. Drian is a relatively unknown fighter and how can he be overhyped if none is hyping him at all. I saw some Francisco's fight and I believe with his style right now, he doesn't stand a stance in any A fighters in his weight class.

Pac was even worse in his younger years, IMHO... :)

Drian's pretty talented IMHO.. He's got great reflexes and good punching power.

The best thing about him, IMHO, is that he's a very gutsy fighter. No one can train a boxer to be brave. If a fighter is too scared to get hurt, he'll never be able to fight using his head. He'll only fight using his instinct.

Just look at how Drian dodges and/or parries his opponents punches, and how he throws his punches with such conviction. That only shows how gutsy he is.

I do agree though that he's fundamentally flawed. He still has a lot of work to do. But I do believe he's got lots of potential...

IMHO, he's a lot better than Ciso Morales or even Abe Concepcion.


bro Abe Conception is far better than Drian at marami pa siyang kakaining bigas bago nya ma reached yung level ni Abe in terms of fighting experience and quality of opponent.

Francisco is overrated. In GMA's show FTW a boxing "expert" daw said that next to pacquiao and donaire, francisco is the fighter to watch. The guy even said that francisco can throw a no look jab :shock: and have a nice side step move.

That so-called expert is a bum. Francisco has a very obvious flaw in this fighting style. Even non experts can spot that flaw. He often lowers his guard. Though he throw a decent stinging jabs, he usually throws wide punches making him very vulnerable to counters. His stamina is also a suspect. So those who are hyping Francisco are just carried away with his recent victories. He isn't even near the caliber of Abe Concepcion.

Before being accused of acting like a Monday morning quarterback, here's my take on him prior to this debacle. Didn't refer him then as a world champion on purpose. Interim titles and their spin-offs are travesties to the sport of boxing imo.

I've seen a Rojas fight post-Penalosa and the kid has sound boxing fundamentals. He has a good in-fighting skills, mixing his crisp, short punches very well on the inside. The only draw back to him is his lack of power and he doesn't fight tall despite his height. But he has a good chin which serves him well to compensate for his lack of pop. He beats Drian in my opinion though. Drian doesn't have the speed, footwork and defense to really be competitive against rated oppositions. Doangpetch may have 1 loss in his 52-fight career but his wins are against patsies. Just look at his record at Boxrec and look for any notable opposition in his resume and it's nil, zilch, nada. Drian won't be a world champion and it doesn't help that he has a lot of bad habits inside the ring. He's on his way to becoming another hyped, overrated fighter in the mold of Bautista and Jaca. I'm not hatin' on the guy but I've been a follower of boxing for so long that I can spot a man among the boys so to speak.

As I saw it the guy has a point. he was exposed by the Thai, if he is to face a technically skilled boxer, then he'll be seating on his *** most of the time. My rate, class "C" fighter, long way to go. :shock: :shock: :shock:
