Re: Does Antonio 'Magic Man' Tarver deserve more respect?
Beating Kayode isn't so much in itself, maybe. Although thats still a tough proposition at this stage.
It's taking on young, undefeated, pretty hard punching cruisers at 43 thats creditable.
What do people make of his punching technique? Tarver must have seriously heavy hands because he seems to stun Glen Johnson with random, weird punches. There isn't really a transition into a lot of those shots but he has enough to knock him onto his heels consistently. One thing I do say though is he wastes his stance a lot. He uses the awkwardness of it but to not use an effective southpaw jab is kind of criminal. Not even a bit. All he thinks about is feinting it for a left hand, its not a weapon in itself.
