    He looks good but Rumble isn't throwing 100%

    Sparring long sons of bitches is the worst. They can just pitter patter and you have to look like the try hard when getting inside, making it progressively turn into a fight

    idk im having flashbacks

    It's not that crazy. Your acting like he looked like the right pic before cutting Weight

    Thats the way sparring sessions should be imo.

    Both guys throwing at 25 - 30%, not trying to take each others heads off. Thats how careers/lives get shortened.

    lol nah; he simulated it.
    A full speed rumble punch is almost a binary all or nothing nightlight of a bomb, but he knows not to. Not say it lands if he throws it, but it is only plodding and missing that badly because he is holding back and not putting legs/lunge into it to chase the chin.

    Neither of them are.

    It’s a medium sparring session. 60-70%.

    Rumble is a big ass bully. He got his shit pushed in every time it mattered.

    It is definitely my least favorite body type to deal with.

    Makes you work so damn hard to get anything done.

    Big fucking bastards... I have t-rex arms too, so I get it double bad

    Yeah but who benefits more from a light/medium spar? The more technically fluid fighter is going to benefit more... less KO chance makes the fight less volatile and winning on points easier. The lighter guy who can keep pepping away scoring points using his speed is going to benefit more, while the power puncher is going to suffer because he can't play to his strengths. Rumble's game is exploding at 100% and knocking you the fuck out.

    Awesome for Rumble. He'd kill Israel inside of 3 rounds.
