    Fouts pointed out a flaw in Grcia v Spence where at one pint he didn`t control Spence with his rear hand, Fouts quoted Asanya at that point saying Asanya knows how to do that so I asked Fouts if Asanya knew more about boxing than Garcia and he replied:
    Yes, ish. He definitely knows more about striking. Definitely knows more about body mechanics. Definitely knows more about positions. Definitely knows more about setting up his shots. Nearly all observable boxing skills I would edge to Adesanya. The only part I would NOT give him the edge is lb for lb power. While I think that Adesanya is a better fighter and knows more about boxing, when you actually strike with a boxer (especially one at Danny's level of striking) the game is just a bit different. This is actually one of the reasons I was giving Garcia such a good chance at the upset vs Spence.
    I have seen Asanya box and he did well v a boxer, does he really know more than a top 10 contender in boxing though?
