on

As a combat sport, boxing has been a great entertainment for decades before of its action.
However, the sport is not only about offense and how strong you punch. Several boxing superstars had already displayed jaw-dropping defences that we need to appreciate.
The movement, the anticipation and the quickness to dodge multiple attacks can not only be great for safety but it can also take its toll to the offensive fighter.
It can disrupt the rhythm of the opponent, hence, will give the better defender the upper hand.
Canelo Alvarez, Tyson Fury and Floyd Mayweather are some of the superstars who displayed amazing dodges on their match.

The current pound-for-pound king is known for his great head movement that allows him to dodge his opponent attacks.
What’s very impressive inCanelo’s head movement is that he can do it anywhere from the ring.
His defense and offense are perfectly even that’s why he is so tough to beat.
His left to right, swing up and down movements often make the opponent to miss their punches. Pretty helpful, right?

The current WBC heavyweight champion once displayed his amazing defense imitating Muhammad Ali’s famous rope-a-dope.
This only shows the skill and confident Fury have.
Those kind of defense plus a little childish gesture will surely frustrate the opponent.
At 6’9” Fury is moving exceptionally well, his movement separates him from the rest of the heavyweights in the present.

Although some will say that he only know how to run when fighting, Mayweather is really skilful and has an impenetrable defense.
It’s the defense that led him to an amazing 50-0 record.
The amount of training and concentration are very evident on Mayweather’s defense. He uses his IQ all the time that’s why he is one of the best to ever lace up the gloves.

Ruiz downs Ortiz in heavyweight title eliminator

Andy Ruiz Jr. is slowly getting back as a heavyweight title contender after dominating Luis Ortiz.

The former unified heavyweight world champion knocked down “King Kong” Ortiz thrice to win via unanimous decision.

Next in line for the boxer who had one of the greatest upsets in boxing history is to face the former WBC king Deontay Wilder.

Wilder, who has been out of the picture since being destroyed by Tyson Fury in their rematch, will make a return to face Robert Helenius before eventually fighting the Mexican Ortiz.

The Ruiz-Wilder bout is a big chance to happen as both heavyweights are under the boxing promoter Al Haymon.

“We’re always looking for great exciting fights we love to give the fans,” said Wilder, who was on ringside during the Ruiz-Ortiz clash.

“So if that’s what is lined up next, I’ve got to handle business and after that, we can get it on.”

by one.

defense, it left the Philippines with no more current world champion in the sport.
Magsayo went through a heartbreaker with a split decision loss against Rey Vargas of
Mexico.
Rene Mark Cuarto also lost the IBF minimumweight title to another Mexican boxer
named Daniel Valladares.
Just last month, it was Nonito “The Filipio Flash” Donaire who surrendered his WBC
Bantamweight belt to the Japanese Monster Noaya Inoue, his second defeat to the now
unified bantamweight champion.
Jerwin Ancajas likewise suffered the same fate while Johnriel Casimero got his WBO
bantamweightbelt stripped from him due to violation in the weight cut guidelines.
Now, the questions afloat are who will be the next Pinoy champion? Will there be
another Pinoy champ?
With Manny Pacquiao retired from professional boxer after losing his belt as well to
Yordenis Ugas, who will be the next boxer that will give the Philippines back its pride?
Up and coming star Eumir Marcial is on the list after capturing the bronze medal in the
Tokyo Olympics. Magsayo is not off the chart as well as he is still young, it’s just a
matter of bouncing back.
