Things We’ve Noticed:🤔 Bringing attention to the many different virtues of the feint.

By Tré Berry III🖋️

One of the least talked about tactics in boxing on a grand scale outside of gyms is the use of the feint. The feint is one of the greatest tactics to use in freezing your opponent and putting them in a reactive stage, which makes them second guess their actions, also slowing down their reaction time by doing so… Continue reading “Things We’ve Noticed:🤔 Bringing attention to the many different virtues of the feint.”

On the Radar:📡 Manny Pacquiao

(History was made in many different facets)

BOXER:🇵🇭Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao🇵🇭

FEATS ACCOMPLISHED: 4 boxing records broken in a single fight…becoming the oldest Welterweight Titlist of all time (40), becoming the first man to become a 4X Welterweight Champion, now having the longest time period between winning his first World Title, and winning his latest one (1998-2019, 21 year gap between the two)…also now having the most wins over boxers who won an official World Title in their careers (27 victories over 22 Champions).

THE PATH TO THE GOAL:📈Ageless wonder is a term used to describe someone who transcends time, yet there are only a few of those examples in all facets of life where this saying actually holds merit. In boxing’s past, we have had great fighters push the envelope as they advanced later into their later years after piling up a lot of mileage on the body that should have been a factor in them slowing down, yet wasn’t…fighters such as Archie Moore, George Foreman, Sugar Ray Robinson, Bernard Hopkins and a few other notable great boxers. 🇵🇭Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39KO👊) is the latest one to add to the list after his incredible performance in out-dueling a very good primed Welterweight Champion in Keith Thurman this past weekend (July 20th, 2019).

Talking Legends:📽️ Pernell Whitaker

Some fighters defy logic with the way they’re able to see events 5 steps ahead of everyone else, whose reaction time is as quick as the flick of a light switch, and can adapt to anything presented in front of them with a natural acumen to their craft.

In boxing, I don’t think there’s a better example in the last half a century of this than the great 🥇🇺🇸Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker (40-4-1, 17KO👊), who had the greatest reflexes displayed since the great Nicolino Locche, and superseded Locche’s ability by being able to counter routinely off of those insane angles and pivots that he would use to evade the onslaught of punches. “Sweet Pete” had very strong legs, which enabled him to cover a lot of ground which made his defensive acumen even scarier, and was the foundation of his overall attack.

Enter the History Books Andy Ruiz Jr, Your New Unified Heavyweight World Champion!

Wow, what a night, the man who took the major opportunity on short notice has made an indelible mark on the Heavyweight division, completely shifting the landscape, as well as the long-term plans of its major players.  🇺🇸Mexican-American Andy Ruiz Jr. (33-1-0, 22KO) endured the punishment administered by 🥇🇬🇧Anthony Joshua (22-1-0, 21KO) that seen him put down in the 3rd round with a Joshua uppercut, to where he got up, pressed the action, traded with the British Heavyweight, and clipped AJ with a nasty 1-2-3 combination that wobbled Joshua’s legs badly, with Ruiz eventually sending him to the canvas in that same round… Continue reading “Enter the History Books Andy Ruiz Jr, Your New Unified Heavyweight World Champion!”
