    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.

    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.
