the Roast says:

Oscar had that left hook that could end the fight at any time. Especially crushing at 130-147. Chris has not shown any type of weapon like that. Algieri doesn't remind me of Oscar at all.

stormcentre says:

Has Algeri been coked up in women's clothing and fish net stockings and/or the subject of any 911 calls for amorous mercy; lately?

If not, doesn't remind me of Oscar.

oubobcat says:

Oscar has incredible hand speed and as Roach pointed out a left hook that could change the course of a fight. Algieiri has more nimble feet than Oscar but nowhere near the hand speed or power.

This is a case Freddie Roach trying the sell the fight early on in the promotion. I am sure Pac's people encouraged him a little to try to build Algieiri up some.
