4 MMA skills Floyd Mayweather used vs Conor McGregor – Should Mayweather train Anti BJJ & Compete

“Congrats to Floyd on a well fought match. Very experienced and methodical in his work. I wish him well in retirement. He is a heck of a boxer. His experience, his patience and his endurance won him this fight hands down. I always told him he was not a fighter but a boxer. But sharing the ring with him he is certainly a solid fighter. Strong in the clinch. Great understanding of frames and head position. He has some very strong tools he could bring into an MMA game for sure.”

Floyd Mayweather will sometimes go to the ropes vs Conor McGregor. Saul Alvarez did a great job of giving himself opportunities to land by maintaining a fair amount of distance in such situations.

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?

Floyd Mayweather Should Help Develop & Train Gervonta Davis In Between Fights

There is a difference between telling someone a bit of info and giving them a boring drill and letting muscle memory take over. This close to fight time Mayweather should not be teaching. he should allow the kid and his trainers to work. Athlete Development is for in between fights. Floyd Mayweather Sr drilled young Floyd Mayweather and help him accountable in an effort to develop young Floyd Mayweather into the boxer he became. Eventually this style of training wore on Mayweather Jr as he became a man. Obviously it’s great marketing for Gervonta Davis to be mentioned in the same breath as Floyd Mayweather Jr. However should Mayweather be a promoter first so close to fight week and allow Geronta and his training staff to prepare? Is development and teaching best for fight week or in between fights? I think it’s awesome to get advice from a legend however teaching globally comes through drilling not through merely sharing knowledge verbally.
