And How Sweet It Is

Like many other fans I've always admired the superstar boxers, those who were physically gifted enough to do things the average boxer couldn't do, like lead with a power shot, and casually duck a 7-8 punch combo by pulling their face back just out of reach. These are the guys that draw the big crowds and keep the sport relevant. But I get a special thrill when watching a boxer who is simply 100% solid in the fundamentals and dominates an opponent who is much sloppier with poor defense.

I love watching those performances that demonstrate the Sweet Science as a functional close combat art as well as a sport.
