The difference between being "fast" or "quick" in Boxing

There's a difference between being fast and quick in Boxing. Many people think if a fighter is fast then he is also quick but this isn't always the case. Being quick is having the abilty to react to the opponent. For example you need to be relatively quick to have good defense or to be an efficient counter puncher. Many fighters are fast when they deceide to intiate a punch or manuever. The young Roy Jones Jr. was fast and quick but as he got older he reaction time (quickness) slowed.…

The Best Versus The Best Still Matters In Boxing

In boxing just about everything is up for debate. We debate on things we can't actually prove nor ever put to the test. Opinions make up the sport of boxing just like clay does a sculpture. The sooner we accept this imperfection, the quicker it brings much better satisfaction in accepting the sport for what it is. My point is that perception makes up the sport. Everything in the sweet science, including why people watch it, is based off opinion and interpretation.

Boxing Needs More Champions like Sergio Martinez

as you all probably already heard martinez dumped his WBC belt and HBO...why? because instead of the WBC making Chavez jr fight him...they're allowing him to fight a lesser opponent.

 

This is whats killing boxing...17-18 divisions with 4 belts in each where you dont even have to fight a champion to get a title...you can do like margarito cotto and pacquiao fighting bums for vacant belts or in catchweights and be hailed as champions.

 

If more fighters follow…
