    I don't think it's **** I think it's quite skilful but its more about the pad man trying to look good then the boxer. It's a bit cringey and I can do it pretty well so no jel.

    Oh yeah, it's a nice show... But we know aesthetics mean little.

    I despised that Mayweather-style pad work when I first saw it, years back, and like you said, a boxer might be good in spite of it but not because of it.

    It ain't good when the trainer's hands are moving as much or more than his fighter's.

    I think that sums it up there. A long time ago I bought the Ringside punch mitts instructional video, which was basically a plug for the various products they had available, and it featured Roger Mayweather, among others. What he was doing made some sense to me. There was another guy- worked with Holyfield...Adams?-and his bit was pointless, in my view. Then there was this guy and his two sons, young kids, and what they did fascinated me. I thought it was incredible.
    And it was; an incredible patty-cakes routine done with boxing gloves. Not really boxing related, other than the gloves.
    I think mitt work, like all other aspects of boxing training should approximate actual boxing as much as is possible. So you move like boxing and you give targets where they should be, make the boxer move and get his feet right to get his punches right. Myself, with an experienced boxer, I like to move him around (either me pushing him, or leading him so he has to cut me off, etc...) get him to work for his shots, using his feet and his brains to get in position. All the time I'm talking to him, 'choreographing' the fight as we move.
    A lot can be accomplished with the mitts, in the ring, if you treat it like sparring and approach it with a purpose in mind.

    Yes. Couldn't recall his name at the moment. And hit bit of work in that video was pointless.

    That's not the point with this type of training.
    It has great benefits when done right, but this short clip shows a very unpolished, poor version.
