Using any compartments of your game in order to absorb the least amount of damage coming inside while enabling yourself to distribute the most possible !
no you did... i understood what your saying

my response to that is

someone like margarito was a great pressure fighter even though he would get abused coming in... it didnt matter because he was going to boil your ass inside...

i just think to try to define good & bad pressure is bogus... you either have successful results with your pressure or you have unsuccessful results with your pressure

every pressure fighter is great at "applying pressure" until they lose... the day they lose they become bad at being a "pressure fighter"

The thing is that at 140, he was a big boxer, that's why he dominated there to some extent with his style of pressure.


who else can we use as examples? before you name any i feel like they will all be identified as great pressure fighters until they met a master class boxer...

i wish we could use more recent fighters..... but there arent too many pressure guys around right now
