    The man took a page out of Anthony Joshua’s book and has completely changed his style of fighting. Lots of foot work. Volume striking. Less countering. More jabs. More right hooks. With this change i expect to see much improved cardio as only those with good cardio fight like this.

    Conor may very well KO Cerone with his right hand rather than the left. That right hook is crisp.

    Your saying this like it’s a fact but there’s no source? Is this pure speculation?

    Joshua didn’t change his game all that much. He just fought scared and clinched a lot. And do you have a source for your claims about Conor?

    Check his training videos. Dominick cruz talked about it as well. He changed up his style completely.

    Since when is sticking and moving = fighting scared? Ali must have been a whimp then. Joshua beats everyone if he comes in like that.

    Well lets see. I posted a video of him training with this new style. Cruz talks about this new style. Conor also brought in his old boxing coach for this fight. If you need more proof of this then idk what to say.

    He probably watched Mcg's pad work. That's not a true indicator on how well he'll do or if he changed his style. i will say this: fighters can't change styles like clothes, you can improve, fix, add or subtract things but the main style is there. we have to wait until fight night.

    His Karate flat foot style worked for him in MMA. He's gone more traditional boxing...prob expecting to go back into the Boxing ring.

    He’ll revert back to his usual style after Cowboy tags him a couple of times.
