Can Conor McGregor resist the urge to dumb down his ability to think vs Mayweather. There has been so much ignorant talk online by fans, media, and sadly enough boxers/coaches about this fight. McGregor and his team could be in this fight in regards to scoring if they just take their time. Attacking Mayweather’s Jab, not smothering himself, always throwing one extra punch in combinations, and overall being patient no matter what should be their game plan. Everything and anything else is simply not smart and a repeat of 49 other competitions.
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.
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.
Anthony Joshua Earns a B+ for His Jab Defense vs Wladimir Klitschko. Anthony Joshua did an excellent job defending in various was against Klitschko’s Jab and Lead Hand overall. These reps are crucial to a young Heavyweight Prize Fighters Development. It all started with him catching the jab which allowed him to see better. Of course he did not completely dominate Wladimir’s jab however he absolutely did a responsible job vs it.
Boxing is such a beautiful sport. I hate highlights sometimes because all you see is punches. Boxing is so much more than that. Salute Guty Espadas. Guty Espadas is an unbelievable athlete, boxer, and fighter from Mexico. He came up in Nacho Beristain’s Boxing System which boast numerous World Champions including Juan Manuel Marquez.
