Default Re: The all things technical thread.

Marquez is a smart old man. Losts of fighters have their little 'tricks'. Barrera used to borderline go low and then hit you with combinations whilst you were distracted or looked at the ref. Ali would grab opponents neck so they couldn’t infight, Hopkins and Frazier beat on opponents hips, Trinidad shouldered you and then threw a wicked right hand, some fighters hit on the blindside of the ref, Andre Ward blindfolds his opponents with his lead hand.

There is a difference between being outright dirty and being tricky though. Eusebio Pedroza for example was outright dirty, Abner Mares is a dirty bugger today. I don't think Marquez did that purposely, it's just one of those things that happens with the styles of both guys and the way they come together. Marquez is just a smarter fighter, Manny's physical gifts give him problems but Marquez' positioning is so much better.

They should have studied the film and done the same thing back to Marquez. If i thought someone was being dirty against my fighter, i would advise them to do the same thing back, don't overlook any indiscretion. Anything a fighter does to you, you can do to them.
