I believe he will be champ within 2 years.
i think he still has to work on his wrestling .. it is getting better .. i think a guy like guida with a good chin and smothering abiliities would be able to takedown melvin and either ride him out to victory or frustrate him to a sub .. but no doubt jackson is working on that ... he is still very young ... my question is though, what happens when he gets older? will he still be nicknamed the young assassin? the middle aged assassin? the aging assassin?
just wondering ...
