    These were posted in another thread. They should be stickied. They are the answer to 99% of boxing problems because they fix your fundamentals, get you accustomed to the correct movement and strengthen the right parts of you

    What's the weight class of the pro boxer, what's their record, just give me the pro boxers name?

    Do I believe someone can knock out a pro boxer with a kick.....of course they can.......

    Play at some dirty boxing? You can utilize some of your clinch stuff from muay thai.

    The guy who put up the clip on Youtube thought that Joe claimed he knocked out pro boxers with punches.:D

    Thanks for the serious advice.
    I think I need to be more humble.
    After today's session I'm actually considering taking a few months off MT (still nursing a leg injury) and putting all my focus into boxing. I can still drill MT on the bags at the boxing gym and hopefully find a pad holder there.
    It may be the best of both worlds

    FWIW you'll punch a lot harder. But the clinch is probably ten times more important.

    How the fuck do I know? Do you think he savagely knocked out a guy several weight classes below him with a taekwondo kick? The most likely scenario is same weight or above.

    Because I believe him. A kicker at his level will KO some pro boxers easily. And he will also get beat up a lot. His account is concistent with other peoples experience.

    So you don't have a vid and what is Joe's level, have you seen any vids of him hard sparring against people of the same weight class? Or have you just seen him kick some pads or a bag?

    He was state champion in the glory days of TKD (biggest talent pool ever). So I'd say he can kick....

    Pretty rare to win with the first kick you throw..

    Highest talent pool ever, please back up that statement, he is 50 now that was when he was 21 and guess why he stopped fighting, health concerns........massive KB amateur record of 2-1....…and your telling me he KO's pro boxers in his weight class or above with kicks at the age of 50.......

    I will tell you my opinion, he's a 50 year old man pumped up on HGH and probably steroids that likes to talk shit and kick bags.........if he ever actually got fit and lost some of that internal fat he is carrying and got into fight shape he would probably suffer a heart attack during an actual fight, it's all good going on about your own self importance.......but he would not stand a chance against a pro boxer with a reasonable record in their prime at his weight class......

    Why do you assume that every pro boxer is better than Joe Rogan at fighting? There are fat, sloppy pro boxers who can't throw a punch worth a shit.
