Well I drop my left down in a effective way, mostly it's up though, but when it's down, it's more relaxed so I can whip it out faster u know

I'm also trying to find my style. I've only been boxing for 3 weeks but every day im improving and creating a style for myself. I was a HUGE boxing fan before I joined, i was just to lazy to join a gym because I had previous sports commitments but now I realize that there is no "set time" of when you can go to the gym, I have a package where I can go whenever the **** I want, so it's pretty tight.

Anyways, I try to mimic Mayweather, but my defense is not at all like his. I try to box like him when he's on the offense, but my defense when i'm getting punched inside is much like winky, i just cover my face.

It's to soon for any of us to know our styles IMO

Sir Fancylot
08-08-2005, 07:30 PM
Yeah, I'm sure I'll change with time, I've been told I'm ****ing hard to hit by a pro at my gym and the guy I first fought couldnt touch me, so I'm going to work on that.

Haha, I agree. Funny that no one said they resemble Joe Schmoe, with a 1-34-3 record. :D

Anyway, your trainers would probably know how you all should fight, since they have a better eye for spotting your weaknesses and strengths. No sense in wanting to fight like Mayweather or Hamed, if you don't have the special talent that takes. And let's face it, most of you probably don't. Well schooled fundamentals is what it takes, then when you master that, you can take it from there.

We are not saying we have the inate natural talent like those fighters, its just that we share a similar sort of mindset to those fighters in terms of how we think the most effective way to beat a fighter is.

so for instance me, i use a lot of Tyson style and it worked so i carry on using it. Thats not the same as me saying im gonna be a champion before Tyson became champion and break the world record.

Random guy, LMFAO. **** doesn't even match up but i got a good laugh.

Most people forget to say I fight like Mayweather or Toney except I get hit 10 times more often. The word they forgot to say is try to fight like Mayweather or Toney.

Offensively I am original. No copycatting here except against a guy my size or smaller , I straight all Aaron Pyror brawl style.

Taller guys at 5'8" and higher
Defensively, I'm short so I use a lot of crouch, bob and weave with or without lateral movement. Influences are Pernell Whitaker drop like it's hot ass almost on the floor style. When I try to pretend to be a slick black fighter I try to be like Toney and use head movement and torso movement. I don't do it often because it's not that easy and takes alot of work. I do it to taunt sparring partners or give them a different look. When I need a breather against tall guys I move like DLH.

Got used to fighting guys at 140-160 boxingwise. MMA the smallest guys there are 165-175.

Maussa still holds that belt he rightfully earned by knocking out Vivian. Perhaps the greatest champ out there today.....


I am thinking about turning pro and challenging for his world title....I atleast stand a shot.

Id send my idol home packing so he can deliver more dishwashers.

I get hit alot to hit them a few, but my hands when I am in an exchange are up as 1 hand is always on my face when the other one is being thrown. When outside if find myself keeping my left hand down kind out dangling in the front always ready to throw(bad idea considering I move in quick so most often get a jab in my face, or a quick right). My problem is I'm a white boy and I got no rythm! I dont dance, I come at you always throwing trying to be inside on the man. I get hit alot because I am slow but I have KO power in both hands, a granite chin and great stamina I just need to learn to move and box alittle better compared to slug it out. If you can tell me who resembles that thanks!

I kinda fight like Tarver and Pacman mix. I am a tall southpaw with real fast hands and i like to counter early. Once i have my oppenent measured i drop the one-two alot and move in closer because i feel very strong at infighting.

And for the record i have actually fought and won all my fights. I plan on doing a tourament in Milwaukee in a month and then silver gloves tournament. By next year i want to win the Golden Gloves in WI.
