Hardcore boxing fans would or will yell, "DID YOU WATCH GGG VS OUMA"? During civil boxing discussions. Well I finally watched the infamous match between the two. From the start of the beginning rounds Ouma was active, jabbing/out-jabbing Golovkin. The big difference here was the en-guarde or on-guard stances the fighter chose to use. Ouma had a perfect boxer bladed on guard stance but was not evasive as most bladed on guard stance users are, and he is a south paw. Ouma is mobile, but Golovkin has a good reputation of cutting off the ring as well. Ouma was born with a genetic superiority, for a smaller guy than Golovkin he had the longer reach, pretty lucky in my opinion. Ouma was winning all the rounds in my opinion, I think that he had the fight in the bag if it went the distance, in fact I think he thought that too. The problem we face with bladed stanced boxers is that their center line is well protected, Ouma didnt get hurt at any time because his center line was protected punches only grazed him, hence "OUMA CAN HANDLE GGG POWER" as some hardcore fans would say. What helped Ouma was that he was a south paw and that Golovkin had a squared stance as well. Because of that squared stance Golovkin got hit a lot of times, no head movement and no counter attacks. Golovkin had to adapt, but it was difficult. Surprisingly bladed stance users have a better time fighting inside as well. Even in the inside Golovkin would get out punched, every single time. But here is what impressed me, due to Ouma's bladed stance he lacked any real knockout power to put Golovkin down on the inside and this was Golovkins strategy, to eventually make Ouma have a squared stance. Squared stance means bigger area to land attacks on. This went on for a while, Ouma ditched his own strategy and fought Golovkins game. Golovkin utilizes his forehead to get on the inside, hence Ouma's headbutt complaints and the bloodied mouth complaint Ouma had with the doctor. Golovkin worn down Ouma because Ouma was not using his bladed stance anymore, funny enough Golovkin fought at his preferred mid distance and TKO'd Ouma. Ouma got too used fighting on the inside. The lesson of this fight is if the opponent has superiority over you, you have to manipulate them into your strategy. Ouma came in a better fighter and a clear victor over Golovkin, but due to Golovkins will, tenacity, toughness, and intelligence, Golovkin took the win. Now fans, DID YOU WATCH GGG VS OUMA?
