Default Re: Sandy Saddler vs Hank Armstrong......

I remember in the other thread, someone said he thought Saddler's inside clinching/spoiling would foil Armstrong's workrate and technical skill. I actually see it as the other way around. I think Armstrong could pick off Saddler's uppercuts, stop him from effectively tying him up, and catch him with over-the-top right hands. Saddler tended to stand straight up inside and could potentially be outworked/outskilled by a low crouching pressure fighter. For example, look at his fight with Charley Riley, and how Riley more than held his own through the first few rounds on the inside with Saddler, and eventually convinced Saddler to change his style and box from the outside.
