Default Re: Intelligent Pressure Is One Of The Biggest Fluke Concepts In Boxing...

are you guys starting to understand what im saying? the whole concept of "applied pressure" is purely based on the outcome of the fight
No it isn't. Just because Margarito wins doesnt mean his method of pressure makes it intelligent. It just means that his method of pressure works for him because he has a freakish IRON CHIN.

Maybe if he had some good footwork, feints and head movement his normal method of pressure would be THAT much better...

And the outcome of a fight never says **** about how good a fighter is at what he does, but rather the size of his will and heart and how he used this with the tools that he had.

Margarito is just that. A come forward typical Mexican fighter with a whole lot of heart and will. His skill was decent, but his assests of chin and stamina were levels above normal. Making him a glorified contender/journeyman.
