That's for damned sure. My wrists still ache, 25 years since my last amateur bout, from hitting elbows while going for the ribs. When you see guys with hand/wrist problems, like Floyd Mayweather (and Gatti, late in his career), back off for a second and shake their hand after throwing a punch, you can bet they've gotten a "stinger" from either hitting an elbow, forearm or punching with the wrist slightly ****ed.

When did I ever say it was a perfect defence?

As I said before, it's a difficult technique to master, but in the right hands it can be just as effective as a conventional guard. There are weaknesses, but there are also strengths.

No, please, I'm desperate to hear this. Who - specifically - called Moore a slow mummy? Where on film do you see Moore being a slow mummy?

*yawn*

People like KTFO are boring. Take eight parts bluster, one part arrogance and one part of genuine substance, mix, blend and mass-produce. You end up with a legion of people who've watched a fight or two in their day and enjoy being contrary for the sake of being cross with everyone they meet.



You go, slugger.

Brilliant man.


But it's hard to be nice when you're as good as I am.

You're even funnier, since you can't answer the question. Lying doesn't count.

You're more evasive than Wilfred Benitez. I'll stop asking now, you've showed yourself up enough as it is. The joke is on you.

Damn, it was a nice thread, until KTFO ruined it with his childish behaviour.
