I think this is a great training move.
When you get with a real boxing trainer it improves your whole game. Head movement, footwork. Look at Rampage. I think Chuck is going to look awesome for the next fight.
He did say he was working on improving his defense and working on his wrestling. He just left himself too open (imho); hopefully he's been working on that.
