Wlad completely killed that fight... He wasn't even trying to punch, it was despicable... And I actually like Wlad, but damn...
Ward uses clinching strategically... Its the equivalent to punching just on the belt line where the ref can't say it was low, but you're opponent felt the same shock as if it were (just not the pain).
He clinches just to immobilize his opponent, than he lets his hands go... He doesn't hold blatantly enough for the referee to issue a warning (definitely not enough to deduct points or DQ) but its still kinda ugly, kinda dirty etc etc...
have a bottle
If u were a fighter and knew how to utilize clinching to keep yourself from getting hit and preserve your career, you absolutely would
