A very dense book. Read two fights at a time, and then come the next day. You will return to this fine book again and again.
"Gonzalez ... enjoyed huge physical advantages over Letterlough - four inches in height and eleven inches in reach. To win, Gonzalez needed to suppress his natural tendency to brawl and (instead) operate behind the jab while trying to catch Letterlough coming in with uppercuts. Meanwhile, Letterlough had to find a way inside for two reasons - to establish proper range for his bombs and to smother Gonzalez's long-armed punches ... Letterlough marched forward as the opening bell rang, moving his torso side to side to slip past Gonzalez's jab while Gonzalez took small steps to establish proper punching range ... Mindful of Letterlough's well-honed recuperative powers, Gonzalez fought with some caution and Letterlough validated Gonzalez's prudence by winging powerful, but inaccurate blows ... Ironically, by getting hurt early,Letterlough was able to draw Gonzalez into the type of inside war in which he excelled ... Gonzalez hurt Letterlough with asizzling hook, two overhand rights and a left uppercut.Read more ›
