just get it into your mind that your going to win, preferably that your gonna knock him out. visalise how your going to win. As Ishe was told on the Contender (i hate that guy btw) 'plan your work and work your plan'

i know its not about actual physical drills, like you asked, but mental preperation can be just as important.

if he's VERY STRONG as you say, maybe you can do Ali's rope-a-dope with him in muay thai. Use his strength against him. Just a thought...I don't know if it means much, but it's a strategy.

rope-a-dope is a resting tactic where u let the opponent ware themselves out then u attack in like the 7th. By that time they are tired.

It was done by Ali against Foreman (Rumble in the Jungle) and mainly consists of him standing against ropes taking punches and verbally intimidating the opponent. Once they have given it their best shot they cant stand properly (cos its so hot in cairo where this happened) then Ali strook and won the fight within bout 2 rounds i think.

Clever stuff eh?

It was just a suggested tactic, mate. In any case, if it's that short, I would then suggest being on technically sound more than anything else. Observe his weakness(es) and exploit them.

But as a tactic, I think rope-a-dope can work anywhere, anytime in my opinion. It depends on how and why it is being used.
