Whatever Happened to wanting to see a man get bashed in the face and knocked on his butt. It seems today we’ve gone soft. More frequently, it may be the case that you hear somebody say, he needs a takedown to win this round, and the struggle. Wrestling is a skill but it seems that many now are ignoring the artwork that has potential to finish the fight the fastest classical boxing. Recently my boxing trainer was forced to resign in my MMA gym. The politics behind it are not significant, but this activity has motivated me to write on the fight discipline’s underutilization. It is frustrating to see this occur. No, this is not a post concerning MMA vs. Boxing. This is not about Randy Couture vs. James Toney. This is all about the usage, or lack of boxing skills.
Recently I attended a May Thai Kickboxing tournament. As an amateur boxer, to score, I saw chances with expertise training in May Thai and Jiu-jitsu or complete the fight. They were the sort of opportunities that a trained fighter exploited and could have recognized. Want to be dominant in the ring. Learn boxing. In boxing this is a sin. Your body goes backward, your punches go. The force is less punching and when moving backward in comparison to the fighter stalking. They counter and circle, although fighters do not escape. The opportunity you need to score points is whether your opponent is currently attempting to score against you. Out of Chuck Liddell, hardly any fighters have had success scoring points. What is even more frustrating to see in conflicts is that once captured in a corner, the opponent does not benefit from this. The fighter is worried about swinging for the fences as opposed to securing the place, and maintaining the opponent trapped against the cage or in the corner. This is the bracket for a ground fighter’s equivalent.
Ring As base is into a wrestler control is to a boxer. Many mayweather mcgregor fighters pose as boxers, but actually they have just learned enough boxing to get by. Few are trained. It is common to find a fighter flows to the middle of the ring and has his opponent in pursuing after him out of control the opponent picks a side and slides off the cage and reeling back in the cage. A fighter that is true comes in under management. All angles are protected by him, removing every escape route and cutting off the competition. Triangle Theory in boxing states that their opponents should cut off. This is the key. Using angles forces the opponent rather. The fighter is also caused by this to energy, needing to reset posture and his position and keeping him. A fighter has a probability of points, and knocking his opponent out. The converse is true for the fighter that uses aggression.
