And a young Tyson for a moment when he got into his crouch used head movement and was ripping those hooks.
GGG isn't on the same level as Martinez, Alvarez, Paqman, and Mayweather.
GGG is BETTER THAN Martinez, Alvarez, Paqman and Mayweather. (At least the 2013 versions)
A boxer willing to take on all comers, no catch weights and no complicated drug detection agenda.
Just a fighter who craves nothing more than beating every challenger on the planet...... Ishida had never been KO'D .... Even Pirog couldn't hurt him.
Beautiful and deceptively quick foot work when its needed. ....and a long jab that he can land from the outside at will.
Not to mention many other subtleties.
Hagler had to have been proud of what he was seeing.
I missed it but good and interesting feed back from the boxing brethren . Getting ready for Rios vs Alvarados. I believe Mike when he says he'll implement more boxing this time around ...truly I do.... But it'll only last a bit longer before the inevitable of Rios' pressure turns it into a street fight. Gimme' Mike by stunning stoppage. Rios' forces it, leaves 'em no choice.
B-sug im still not impressed. Do u think he's better then SOG?
Well you have to appreciate the fact that GGG can't get top names to fight him because GGG IS THE SAME GUY THEY ALL FEARED MEETING IN THE AMATEURS. GGG went 345-5 in the amateurs beating top talent like Bute, Korobov, Dirrell, and Pirog.
When GGG was based in Germany he was ducked by Arthur Abraham, Sturms, and Pirog.
When he came to the U.S. he couldn't get Quillen, Martinez, Chavez Jr or any other respectable middle weights to return his calls.
The best thing about GGG is that he doesn't have to sit around waiting for HBO or SHOWTIME dates because with K2 Promotions he can fight any where in the world.
You haven't seen it yet but GGG can dance on his toes like SRL if he wants to.
The way he crouches twists and creeps forward on perfect balance is like fighting a nebulous cloud of smoke with a couple of bricks hidden inside.
And....Yes..... If GGG meets Ward in the ring.... Ward will lose.
