Fundamentls in the sport of boxing serve an important part of the sweet sceince.
Not just at amateur level but even at the highest level of professional boxing.
California boxing star Ryan Garcia scored an imprssive body shot stoppage over the UK’s Luke Campbell this past weekend.
Doing so after getting up from being knocked down earlier in the fight to make the finish even more impressive.
Respected commentator and trainer in the sport Teddy Atlas made reference to one of the basics of boxing that went wrong:
Olympic Gold winner Campbell of the UK knows all to well about technique of course.
No doubt he will come back stronger again.
As for Garcia, the future is very bright indeed.
Ready made rivals in his division in the form of Devin Haney, Teofimo Lopez and Gervonta Davis just some of the young fighters he could face.
Granted in a difficult time for the sport and the wider world.
Wherever you are in the world at this time folks keep doing the right thing and look after yourselves.
This will pass, keep the faith.
