I really would like to learn about boxing in the UK, how it compares to to US boxing. What do you emphasize in training skill-wise. Where I live the emphasis is on body punching and power, more offense then defense. I would think they are more technical in the UK.
The UK puts US pro boxing to shame, the crowds and the support for your fighters is truly amazing. Ogogo turning pro with Goldenboy I dont know if that was the best idea. The UK would have done a better job, oh well time will tell.
Golden Boy are going to Promote in the UK.
