Congrats on a very good fight.

Most things have been said here, but what I noticed the most were that you should keep your right foot on the floor while you jab. Easy to lose power and balance if not.

Cheers pal.

Surprised you noticed it to be fair. In amateur boxing basically if you have a guy like that the ref looks for any opportunity to step in, so I gave him one. Just some gamesmanship on my part.

Yeh, I do get reckless. In this fight particularly, I realised I was stronger and was hurting my man so I got a bit careless.

In the gym, my trainer thinks I don't commit enough. Amazing how people can change on fight night.

Good advice.

Your reflexes are good, but sometimes you are getting caught with punches on the ropes, particularly that right hand on a couple of occasions. Your guard could be a little tighter there, and you try to fight your way off the ropes too much.
Got caught there abit. I think I get too comfortable on them, cause my trainer says to me after round 2, 'I know you can take them, but don't!'. I think I just got too relaxed in there.

Quote:
I watched this in the thread you made on the Classic and watched your last bout aswell, where I loved your body work. That is a real weapon for you and one you neglected a bit in this fight. Your left hook to the body is excellent in my opinion, and so is the way you can lead with it and put a right hook to the body in behind it. Use that as a weapon, but trust your physical strength more and push your guy away [like you did in this fight a couple of times early] to re-establish the range.
I didn;'t go to the body much in this fight, as I was landing on the guys head and hurting him so looked for the stoppage. If you watch early I'm looking for the body but see I can hurt him so switch it upstairs.

Quote:
In terms of getting caught on the ropes, it happened quite a few times to be fair. You remained pretty composed while on it and I saw a couple of very good counters - another weapon for you imo - but it's not a place you really want to be with the advantages I feel you will often have on the outside, because you get dragged into a war again. You're often getting backed up in straight lines towards the ropes. When you see the other guy drop his shoulder and load up, double up on that jab and take a side-step away from it.
Really good advice.

Quote:
Your punching form is often better than your opponents, you are often quicker and your punches tend to be far more accurate, plus your bodywork is usually much better than the other guys, so you can sometimes get away with fighting in close quarters. But you make things a little difficult for yourself when I feel as long as you command the ring [i.e, get a feel for where the ropes up, don't get backed up in straight lines, and keep circling with that jab], you can box comfortably on the outside most of the time.
Exactly. I make things difficult for myself. Will have to work on my mentality, can't make every fight a war.

Quote:
You are improving though. You have a lot of things going for you, you just get dragged into a fight a bit too much.

My trainer went mad at me for that because I let him hit me a bit.

Cheers though.

Greg's good because he studies the greats of the past.

I'm not kidding.

good control mate. i noticed a couple of times (esp in the first round) when you double that left jab the hand comes back to your chest rather than your chin. just keep an eye on that.

how tall are you?

Everything was beautiful and I liked the results you got. If I was picking out just one thing to work on, it'd be your left hook. You throw it kinda with your elbow down, more like a slap. Your straight punches were getting there and hurting him, and a good powerful hook would have made it a much easier night. Kinda looks like you're more of an outfighter so you might not be as used to throwing it inside (the way you throw it is good for a long-range hook, but on the inside you can really sit down on it more).

Great fight though, and you take a hell of a shot!

Right, I also fought Friday night as in 2 days ago.



Sorry this is in different parts but I can't change that. And for some reason part of round 2 is missing.



I am in blue again.



The guy I was fighting was 20 or 21 and very strong, I felt. I also think he was roughly 2-3KGs heavier which is 4-7lbs heavier.



I went a bit to war in this fight and its a humdinger. I lost a majority decision by 1 point, I think I lost it in the last round as I was buzzed by a right hand and gave away a few points because of it. Still I felt it could have went either way.



I'm fighting this guy again on Friday this week.
