Matthysse vs Postol
« on: October 04, 2015, 11:53:35 pm »
very surprised at this fight.. Viktor Postol pretty much owned Matthysse. Postol is enormous for 140. He was timid during the fight but still dominated... that's impressive. When he let his hands go, Matthysse had no answer and was in serious trouble. Matthysse really should have invested more to the body.

Really impressed with Postol.. If he can keep winning and eventually fight Crawford, that would be a sick fight.

On shotime, edner cherry fought padraza.. horrible robbery imho. Cherry definitely won that. They really need to fix these outright robberies in boxing, I knew Cherry had no chance winning that, no matter how many rounds he won. The story of the up and comer vs the old timer. Pretty much the only way to beat the up&comer is to tko/ko.

didn't watch much of the broner fight.. not interested until he fights some bigger competition again.

I expected some entertaining fight of boxing and power punching but matthysse was unable to press the action, postol tall, never seen him before, but heard good things from him, but he has some nice combos when he lets it fly but he always seems to get tangled with lucas, hands and the grabbing, lucas had a moment but postol was too tall for him, it would have been better as you said target the body more as well as fight close and make his way from the body to the head, that's how you fight a tall person, up close. but postol knew how to keep his distance and dominated.

I watched the broner fight, allakhverdiev was sleeping all night during the time he would get broner on the ropes and he would plan too much he would sleep so suprised it took him so long to plan his attack not much combo needs to do more combo, but it was not a challenge for broner.

would love to see postol vs crawford.
Warm up drills
   - a walk, b skip quick powerful switch (heel to hams focus), a runs, dribbles small to big to run, straight leg to runs (force, reflex, go up/forward). force to hit the ground before it hits the ground knee/hip is at 90 degrees.
   - acceleration: low heel recovery, shin angle low, drive legs back before hitting the ground and drive thighs/knee forward not up
Measuring reminder:
5 toe to heel steps = 148cm
