I was thinking about my last fight and how I've noticed alot of trainers don't know how to wrap hands properly... Mine where great, my trainer wraps hands all the time for boxing and MMA, the guy I fought was getting his checked right before me and his where basically non-existant granted he didn't have anyone who knew anything about fighting cornering him so i guess thats normal...

I missed BJJ last night because of work, MMA tonight should be fun, hopefully my custom gladiator guard comes in today, my boil and bite mouth piece makes me gag still...

I don't post mine as much, but I can't stop making sigs at all. If I made a boxing one, it would have to be of RJJ! Still my favorite boxer even though his age has really caught up with him.

Can't go wrong with a bit of Joe! He trains about 15mins from my house. As much as I loved him ending his career undefeated I still wish he was fighting, for selfish reasons.

He's the only boxer I ever got truely excited about watching.

RJJ is my favorite boxer, but he had nothing for Calzaghe. Other than dropping Calzaghe in the first when the threw an uppercut and Joe ducked into his forearm, RJJ was dominated.

RJJ is orthodox, he throws a lot different then most guys. When RJJ hits you, he puts everything in it, but if your smart you can move out of the way and hit him with a hook or uppercut and hes out for good

It isn't that easy lol Calzaghe decisioned him. RJJ was very hard to KO. Man in his prime, he was the closest thing to untouchable. He was insanely elusive, super fast and had KO power in both hands. The only problem with his style is that it all came together because of how fast he was. The older you go, the more your speed begins to fade. So the slower RJJ got, the harder it got for him to maintain that dominant style.

If you go onto youtube and search RJJ highlights, it is ridiculously impressive!
