    Codys style is literally 80% boxing.

    What do you think? Is he the closest thing right know or are there other people?

    Did he show us what boxers are capable of?

    Cody's style is not boxing, it's punching

    He is boxing is all hands no defense

    Boxing is more than just sharp fast pretty combos, he has zero defense, he always admires his work after he throws thats how he always gets caught and he exchanges and gets wrecked with his chin up

    He has good boxing but his defense is horrid and he is trigger happy he needs to be more patient and avoid getting in exchanges and just counter and move his head and tuck his chin, plus stop always admiring your work with your hands down thats how TJ caught him

    Punching =/= boxing

    Throwing a counter 2,3 over and over or swanging and banging in the pocket with your eyes closed is not boxing

    cody having great boxing is a myth, dude throws like nothing but hooks to the head and nothing else, maybe the occasional 1-2. also has shit defense and shit fight IQ.


    he's just extremely fast so his boxing looks better than it really is.
