Boxing Abilities

Being a former WBA lightweight champion and a hybrid boxer indicates that Juan is a highly skilful boxer that excels at in-fighting and out-boxing.

Technique

Juan uses exchanges, counting on his strength to win out on them. He favours using his left hook as his knockout punch, as that was used for 80% of his knockouts. His lefts come out in abnormal angles, however, his fist position remains the same. His punches aim both high and low, making it difficult for one to block. He uses a high guard that is higher than his jaw, making it harder to break.[3]

Weaknesses

Due to his high guard, he leaves his body open for attacks.[3]
