LULZ ... I have a hard time deciding who is trolling who. An entertaining thread, if nothing else

Walker has a better shot at rocky than rocky does at wlad.

In fairness, Wlad does boast an excellent jab. He uses his left pretty well overall; he jabs well, hooks off it, has a very good left hook, and uses the left to keep an oncoming fighter off-balance by pushing down on them as they come in.
Not easy to get past it.

Is pushing down on opponents an admirable skill to you? Wlad lunges in head first, chin exposed when he throw a jab. Its very far from excellent.

To be fair, waldo does have a pulverizing jab ... Its definitely one of the hardest ive seen

But he still freaks out if hes not in control of his opponent and has pesented a stamina problem through out his career ... If the rock can take him to the later rounds he should be able to score the ko

Heart alone got Brewster a victory over prime steward wlad ... Rocks got plenty of it

No doubt he's got serious power, but the technique isn't there. Without his huge power it would be useless.
The Rock fought on half blind once and another time with his face split in half, and won. Wlad calls it a day after he takes a few clean punches.

Some also have failed to identify Wlad's greatest asset in controlling fights over the past 7 or 8 years, even moreso than his jab.

It's his footwork. He has great footwork for a big man, unhinging attacks, resetting the action (which goes contrary to the assertion that he is a chin-out jabber). It's another thing, outside of his power, that his opponents and sparring partners note unanimously. Byrd, who is far more agile, mobile and balanced than Marciano ever dreamed of, said that was the major difference between their two fights. Wlad was never where he was trying to put him in the second fight, that he had uncanny movement for a big man and it was just too hard to get at him. But why listen to to guys who have actually been in the ring with the man?

The Rock was a lot smarter than guys gave him credit for but he was also rather oafish for his lilliputian dimensions. I just see a long, sustained beating from a distance here. Beatdown, reset, beatdown. Sound familiar? It's been the same boring but effective recipe for the better part of a decade's dominance over the division.

What an absolute joke. Byrd was nothing at HW. He was useless. A shot to shit , no jab, slow Golota beat Byrd without even throwing power shots. Whats worse is that it took you a coulpe of days to come up with that tripe.

Never said he had no jab.

Byrd did nothing at HW. Your critical facilities weigh the same as a bag of feathers.

Pointing your finger , throwing insults instead of boxing talk is the definition of trolling. Its you seamus, and that other clown who hold the monopoly on that, not me.

You're calling me a troll for defending Marciano and criticizing Byrd? You're a waste of space.

Tua was the fattest man to ever fight for a world title. He was done when Byrd got to him. Golota beat and dropped Byrd and he couldn't even throw his jab.
