Mir is pretty terrible tbh.
"Triad Combat" sounds like something someone's eight-year-old kid came up with.
Hoping big Frank takes this one honestly, he's given us great entertainment over the years. Pulev hasn't impressed me in a long time.
Kubrat is too big and too young (lol) for Mir, watch Mir against 45 year old Cunningham. Plus the Cobra is a nasty, nasty clinch fighter.
Nothing against Mir but the only way he wins is if Kubrat eats ice cream only, trains in his garage, and has aged like a housefly.
Yeah I know Mir doesn't stand much of a chance, just kinda wishing upon a star in this case.
Triad Combat sounds like an 80s Hong Kong action film centred around human trafficking victims performing impressive acrobatic martial arts against each others faces.
Triangular ring? So Teddy Atlas has to say "in that triangular circle"?
Two men enter, one man leaves.
I honestly want Teddy to commentate on this -- and events like it, such as Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury -- just to hear him trash it non-stop.
Commentators to be Jeff Van Gundy, Eric Trump, and combat sports expert J'Leon Love. Intro narration by Gary Busey. Interviews conducted by Condaleeza Rice.
They are attempting to level the playing field between the two sports by using crossover gloves and allowing holding and hitting. It will be interesting to see if these new rules create "equality of arms." My only gripe is the two-minute rounds.
I mean boxing already allows a lot of clinching.
Those rules massively favour the boxer tbh, its nowhere near a middle ground like they're claiming. Spinning back fists are a very low percentage technique and not all that common, and the extra clinching isnt going to help much when the only thing you can do from clinch range is punch. Plus its in a ring so theres no fence to push someone up against for extra control.
I thought it was Belfort? This is...somehow even dumber.
Pulev is big time out of shape too. And this new... lets call it thing is nonsense.
