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?
Training Thai Muay Thai Fighters Comes With Its Challenges When You Are A Foreign Trainer. However its still fun however.
Working on some Big Man Game techniques with Manachai. Manachai is a Muay Thai Prospect competing out of Bangkok. He is an explosive athlete with potential to be a World Champ. In this training video we are developing techniques that could translate when his athleticism starts to fade later in his career.
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 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?
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.
Floyd Mayweather vs Saul “Canelo” Alvarez was a matchup I didn’t think was completely in favor of Floyd Mayweather at the time they fought. I had done plenty of homework on Canelo at the time and he wasa really good developing boxing prospect mentally. Add in his strength… However Mayweather as usual knows his best. What did he know? Mayweather knew Big Man Game Formula. He stood his ground and at times backed Canelo up with a presence physically that is FUNdamental to Big Man Game. Canelo I’m sure learned a ton from this fight. Canelo has the smartest team in boxing and I’m sure would make the necessary adjustments to make a possible future fight vs Mayweather much more competitive.
Vasyl Lomachenko vs Floyd Mayweather: Who had the better “Control Game” in their prime???
Control is a function of fun. When I’m not in control, I’m not having fun.
Loma and Pretty Boy have some of the best Control options in boxing history. Whose was better. Who used theirs for offense, defense, or and even combined all three together best?

Wladimir Klitschko Patent Setup Puts Anthony Joshua On His Ass. As expected in every Wladimir Klitschko fight, he rhythm bounces into an offline 1-2 setup. Anthony Joshua showed a ton of leg stamina to get off the canvas and bounce back to win the fight.
Anthony Joshua has been training very professionally and has developed to become a very good, if not great Professional Prize Fighter. His biggest test will come when he takes on Wladimir Klitschko. Klitschko has been a very efficient prize fighter. Klitschko understood early in his career that he is a very tall man and did not need to fight like Mike Tyson. Instead he fights like a throw back Jack Johnson, limiting his opponents offense with the threat of a very accurate right hand coming down hill like a runaway freight train.
Klitschko lives in the middle of the ring. He is able to do that because a long stiff jab and a great clinch game that limits his opponents to one to two punches at a time. His clinch will come before and or after his offense. It’s his primary defense along with his punching power. Klitschko likes to lull you to sleep with a great feint and hesitation game allowing him to step offline with authority to land right hands or left hooks.
