I agree with your gameplan on how Cro Cop could win the fight, but don't you think that his speed has seemed to slow down enough that it won't be an overwelming factor?
Also, do you think that Cro Cop possesses the same pure punching power as Mighty Mo?
I'm more talking about his reaction time, and hand speed, it's still rediculously fast, not as fast as it once was, but still fast.
And no, he doesn't have the punching power of Mighty Mo, but he has pretty powerful hands and kicks which he works very well in combos.
Exactly, Cro Cop hasn't exactly looked like a cheetah in his last few fights. He's been slow and lumbering. Choi is about as fast as a snail, but when you pack ridiculous power it only takes a shot or two.
Again, I'm talking about his reaction time and hand speed, their still pretty fast and compared to Choi's, theyre like lightening.
Also, Choi has strong hands, but he's way too slow to KO anyone. Most of his KO's have come against virtual nobodies who really suck, like 3 against AKEBONO!. Look at his fights against, smaller, quicker guys like Bonjasky, Saliga and JLB. They used their speed and more advanced arsenal to outscore him and even KO him.
Kongo used his reach and kicks to outscore and keep Mirko away, plus, he's a much better striker than Choi. Choi doesn't have those kicks, and all he has is the jab, which is child's play for Mirko.
If Mirko can keep his cool and not get frustrated to the point where he cracks (like against Hunt, Kongo, and Fedor) He has this in the bag.
