    Can't learn that kind of shit overnight. That needs to be hard grained over years.


    Just having solid fundamentals and technique really exemplify their power.



    Cody Bless
    Conor Bless

    A few months ago there were people saying Cruz would beat Conor.

    yup. boxing fundamentals made a HUGE difference in this fight. Cody was walking Dom into shots, and slipped and ripped him to death.

    Mousasi has the best amateur boxing background.

    Cody actually has wrestling credentials to back up his striking tho

    That's true TS.

    im a hater of irish jabroni but NO ONE can't deny his amateur background in boxing, the same with cody: the fundamentals always beats improvised stuff.
