ryan is about as ready for tank as he ever will be. he has flaws but i dont see him becoming a different fighter. he will probably always be a fairly popular guy who gives you action and beats up on those who cant take advantage of his flaws but gets beat by the cream of the crop.
take that mans burrito out your mouth hombre
Dude almost had 2 years to work on the flaws he showed against Morales and Velez back in 2018 and he didn't. All the pulling straight back, no head movement, shytty footwork, etc...still manifested against the best opponent he ever faced. He gutted it out, but its still not a good look. If he hasn't fixed that shyt yet, I doubt it gets fixed now. He is who he is.
With dudes like Ryan Garcia, if you can't fix their flaws, you double down on their strengths. If they can get him to up his work rate behind a steady jab and cut off the ring better, he'd be an even bigger problem. All that following dudes around looking for the perfect shot, will allow the more aggressive guys to test that chin again.
you the only. That marinating shyt always leads to upsets. Keep it real, the longer the wait, the less likely it is to happen. Get it done now
thought i was the only one who wish he upped hos work rate. I know he was being respectful and responsible after the KS, but the point still stands
Ironically Amir Khan 2.0 needs Freddie Roach
It's not even how bad the knockdown was. It's the punch he got hit with. That shyt was a telegraphed looping left hook. Top fighters don't get hit with shyt like that. He didnt try to move his head or even keep his guard up. It looked as if he didn't see the punch at all. There's something missing there. He doesn't seem to be able to think quickly on his toes.
If you're gonna have slow feet you better have great upper body movement. But Ryan has neither. Dude looks very stiff and awkward.
But with his speed and power he's always gonna be a threat for anybody early on. If he clips Teo or tank he could hurt em. But those guys are too smart to trade with him early on. They'll just take their time and wait for Ryan to make mistakes. They don't even have to press the issue. Ryan is so undisciplined right now he repeatedly puts himself in dumb situations. So It's not just the physical things. Last night showed me Ryan has some mental flaws that I don't think he can overcome. At least not any time soon. And now everybody knows he got that China in his chin too.
My nikka, I was thinking the same exact shyt while I was typing all that out.
Guys like Garcia and Khan will never be thinkers. Trying to make them do all that cerebral shyt, will only get them lit up by the fringe contender nikkas they supposed to be bodying.
Got them plodding around trying to figure out boxing style clash fractions in their head while some hungry fringe contender is going for broke will be a recipe for disaster.
I mean he was still throwing more than Campbell, but it was just by a little, which was still giving Luke just enough time to counter between the openings or turn him.
Garcia needs to be averaging like 70 punches a round. He does that and most dudes are being overwhelmed by the power an activity. Its one of the reasons Punisher was a problem.
Quality match making, cuz they knew Luke won't go for broke. He's a legit quality threat, but no killer. You could see the nervous bewildered look on Ryan face right after the knockdown. The kid was still trying to figure shyt out about himself. Instead of rushing the process, Luke allowed him to take his time and figure it out and then walk him down. That's like shooting a wolf in the shoulder, but instead of finishing it off, you let it crawl over and bite you.
fukking UK school of boxing will have to be temporarily shut down for about a week or so after this one.
Seems like Freddie's not getting big fighters anymore. He's pretty much Manny's water boy now. I think Robert Garcia might be good though ......look what he did with maidana. Robert is good at focusing on a fighters strengths.
Ionno how you don’t go for broke after a KD like that... you don’t gotta go full wilder but God damn Eurocac didn’t even try to hurt him again
Yea Roach is
Ryan stays with team Canelo until he takes a L
