Exactly. But you also need a certain kind of fighter to pull that off. Someone with a solid body and a solid punch. Don't let him sit and control the fight, they have to bring the fight to him all night long. Forget some of the rules and make it a nasty fight, push him with the body arms or even elbows. In the inside do what El Perro does and just let your hands go, even if the ref says to stop. The only one's that can kind of box him at this stage is Trout because of his size and Martinez because of his speed and size as well. The rest should just go balls to the walls
