The Attributes of a Fighter

Being a fighter takes a special combination of skill and will, power and finesse and an unmatched physical and mental toughness.  Boxing requires a resolve to not only survive, but thrive in any situation you’re faced with.  From technique to tenacity, these are the most important characteristics of any great fighter.

When All Else Fails…Jab

During the 2001 championship fight between Floyd Mayweather and Diego Corrales, George Foreman, as part of HBOs broadcast team, said “If you want to be a good fighter, forget about the left jab, but if you want to be a great fighter, that’s the best punch in boxing.”   Although you could argue whether it is THE BEST punch in boxing, you can’t disagree with Big George’s sentiment about its level of importance in the ring.
