The problem is that people only see the counter-punching mitt work and assume that's all that they do; that's wrong.

Along with that, I can't help but be a bit perturbed by trainers who observe that style of mitt work and bite off of it by selling dvds breaking down how to do it. If anyone should be getting paid and making dvds off of that style, it should be the Mayweather's.

Coach Rick posts a gagillion videos a day doing the Mayweather style mitt work, yet hasn't produced a single champion biting off of it... a fighter he trained got stopped on ESPN by Karim Mayfield; it's just bothersome that he's promoting somebody else's mitt work to get paid.

Did you even read the entire article? Not the small part I posted, I'm talking about the link?

He never said it was bad or that it was useless. As a matter of fact he said it has it's place and can be beneficial in boxing. His take is that many trainers are using it PRIMARILY as their training tool or using it to look impressive as if they know what they are doing and don't.

I don't know who coach Rick is but that is a classic example of what I'm talking about and what the article outlines. It's not condemning that style of mitts if used in combination with the basics but there is an increasing amount of "trainers" that learn that and use that as their primary teaching tool.

Here's some more of the article that I assume you didn't bother reading.

I don***8217;t condemn this philosophy completely, as I do believe that the Mayweather ***8220;speed-pads,***8221; as some people call it, is the best cookie cutter mold for approaching offense and defense. The basics of Mayweather mittwork come down to a few basics (for those of you who have no clue to the mystical sleight of hand they see before them):

Catch a left hook, come back with a left hook
Weave a right hook
Shoulder roll a right hand, come back with a right hand
Roll (pull back) or catch a jab, come back with a right hand
Catch a left to body, come back with a right uppercut
Catch a right to the body, come back with a left uppercut
Pivots to stay in front of feeder

Ultimately, the Mayweather mittwork can be effective when it supplements the myriad of conventional boxing training, but don***8217;t sell it long.
