All laughs aside on a serious note, I urge anyone to try spin your opponent. It's not crazy to think it works that's like saying the whizzer doesn't work. You have to know how to position yourself correctly like you would a body shot. I'm interested in hearing if anyone else has tried this.
Yes, hundreds of millions of people who have taken a MT class. If you aren't spinning people in the clinch, you're not doing MT.
The little angle switch at 2:00 is a thing of beauty. We often do these kinds of steps in Muay Thai, and it's nice to see them work in boxing. Coach calls them "boxer's walks," when you step out of stance to find an angle on the opponent. It's slick how Pep sets this particular "boxer's walk" up by first turning away, as he usually does to disengage and reestablish his usual dominant inside angle, and then as the other fellow follows him, steps out of stance with what Jack Slack likes to call a "cheat punch," and then just rotates right back into stance with a short overhand right.
You could study Pep for hours on end. His fights with Saddler are incredible. Both of those guys are so impressive.
Edit: And KounterPunch, you'll have to explain to me how the sequence at 2:51 doesn't belong in MMA.
