No one would ever confuse that with good boxing, but it wasn’t the trainwreck that it could have been.

Tyson looked just about as good as a 50+ year old is going to look while Jones was more than happy to hug the night away.

this Navarette kid is a quality boxer. fantastic stamina too
Diaz was amazing in the fight as well but those damn Navarette uppercuts from the next country are insane I have never seen anyone uppercut with such a ridiculously poor technique but man its amazing how he makes it work.

Navarette will have big problems when his body grows and has to move up in division he won't have the advantages he has now the guy is the most exciting/active champion in boxing today. His fight against Dogbe to win the title was another epic fight.

there have been fighters in the past with unorthodox methods of boxing such as Roy Jones and always keeping his hands down and then annihilating opponents in quick bursts. I'm looking forward to the return of Lomachenko and his bout against the Japanese Boxer Nakatani.

Yeah I agree but Jones could do it because he was a freak athlete (and on some serious juice imo) , Navarrate is a freak in terms of cardio but his punches are not even that fast most his opponents have faster hands and he still lands that uppercut.

Yes but it's just something instinctive as well there's a lot of guys with long arms but I have never seen anyone land uppercuts like him, I can't put my finger on it which is way I'm assuming it's something natural which cannot be taught.
I think the instincts were taught at a young age and hence we see the product now
