"I think his leg is a little bit stronger - it looks like to me ... he's gotten more mature, he's gained some weight in his lower body, he's worked out hard and he's done plyometrics and squats. He works hard at what he does and he's gotten stronger; he kicks, he kicks a lot, he kicks all throughout the offseason."
