Floyd Mayweather has the best Anti Control Game ever! Can McGregor Control Mayweather?

Floyd Mayweather is very rarely if ever controlled. The moments he is controlled, his tendency is to adjust immediately, regaining control of the fight one second at a time. Conor McGregor has won all of his fights with an extremely advanced control game featuring glove, hand, head, feint, Big Man Game, and many other forms of control. Needless to say Control Is Fun! Which fighter will Control this fight?

Can McGregor use the Clinch in his fight vs Mayweather without fouling?

The Clinch Game in MMA is different from The Clinch Game in May Thai, Kickboxing, & Boxing. However there is still a thought process and options in each discipline when in a Clinch. Can Conor effectively use elements from a Mixed Martial Arts Clinch in his fight vs Mayweather without fouling?

Kell Brook’s Inability To Defend Against The Jab and The Lead Hand Dooms Him vs Errol Spence

Kell Brook competed very well vs Errol Spence. Here at AMSB we have always been excited by Kell Brook’s potential as a boxer. He possesses phenomenal mental and physical athletic ability. His one flaw as we pointed out four years ago was that he did and does not catch the jab.

We thought he fought well against Golovkin however he did not catch the jab in that fight which doomed him. Against Errol Spence he did not defend well against the jab and it cost him his IBF Belt. Errol Spence proved to have the patience and mental stamina necessary to be a World Champion for a long time.

Gervonta Davis vs Tevin Farmer Highlight! Southpaw vs Southpaw Who Wins?

Gervonta Davis vs Tevin Farmer would be one hell of a match up. Though Davis is marketed as a puncher solely, he is an incredible southpaw boxer with great intangibles. His power is an acting as an equalizer he uses it as moth southpaws do in the form of being a crafty counter puncher.

Tevin Farmer “The Museum” aka “Dear Leader” is a dictator in the ring. He controls tempo, pace, when you punch, why you punch and is often bored in fights due to his mastery. Having revamped and upgraded his boxing skills after a rocky start to his career, Tevin is now the boxer to avoid in the 125lb and the 130lb divisions.

Who wins if these two prize fighters ever went head to head?
