Jack Slack analysis: John Hathaway vs. Dong Hyun Kim

"Dong Hyun Kim is an incredible top player. The only reason I haven't written anything about this is because so much of his top-game strategy is simply stifling the man on the bottom, which doesn't make for particularly interesting viewing or analysis. Hes also great at putting the pace on his opponents. His striking is pretty middling and his defence on the feet is fairly porous, but more often than not his opponents can't find that moment to put him away.

John Hathaway, for his part, is an unusual chap. His strength is more as a grappler than a striker, which is fairly unusual for a Brit, but if Mike Pyle could manhandle him in the clinch, Kim probably can, too.

Perhaps the most interesting thing I can tell you to look for in Hathaway is an incredibly fundamental flaw in his footwork. You don't get to see this much, but once you notice it on a fighter, it sticks out like a sore thumb..."
