Adam Kownacki vs. Charles Martin - CompuBox Punch Stats

By CompuBox

This battle of top-10 rated heavyweights was a slugfest from start to finish, with Adam Kownacki's relentless pressure controlling the first five rounds and Martin's effective inside blows and head-snapping punches at long range powering a later-round rally.

The 10th round saw the pair exchange 62 total punches (32-30 for Martin) and 155 total punches (79-76 Martin) as well as produce multiple shifts of momentum.

Kownacki's volume punching prompted a quick pace (72.9 punches per round to Martin's 62.1- hvt. avg: 45,) and that output helped him forge leads of 242-203 overall, 23-18 jabs and 219-185 power because the accuracy was nearly identical (33% each overall, 17%-15% jabs for Kownacki, 37% each power). The round-by-round breakdown had Kownacki up 7-3 overall, 7-2-1 jabs and 7-3 power, which mirrored the judges' unanimous 96-94 scores for Kownacki.

Shawn Porter says he doesn't often make predictions. Maybe he should. Leading up to Saturday night'sWBC welterweight championship fight against Danny Garcia, Porter vowed to win the title.

 

He lived up to his word by unanimously outpointing Garcia. Porter (29-2-1) received winning scores of 116-112 from judge Don Ackerman, and Julie Lederman and Eric Marlinski had it 115-113.

Porter held the IBF welterweight title from December 2013 to August 2014. Garcia dropped to 34-2.

Prior to Thursday afternoon's final press conference, Porter said he planned on using his movement to open up Garcia, while acknowledging he had to be wary of being caught in clinches or backed along the ropes.

He proved prescient, as almost from the outset, Garcia's plan of attack was to neutralize Porter's movement with clinches. Much of the first six rounds saw the two essentially engaged in a wrestling match.

It took until seventh for the fight to develop flow. The round began with referee Steve Willis calling for a timeout after Porter and Garcia bumped heads 29 seconds in, and the two exchanged heavy shots for the remaining 2:31.

Porter, the aggressor, had Garcia, the counterpuncher, forced into an aggressive fight. It stayed that way for the remainder, although Garcia began to re-implement clinches in the 10th round as a way to slow Porter.

It nearly worked. Garcia landed a higher percentage of punches (36 to 24) and a higher percentage of power punches (46 to 25), but Porter threw more punches (742-472) and more power punches (544-304). As a result, Porter now has the title that had been vacated by Keith Thurman.

[QUOTE=thack;19084919]Adam is busy for a fat guy but is too easy to hit[/QUOTE] I wonder if he'd still even be a heavyweight if he shed all that flab.
