How many boxers do you think were excellent listeners when it came to instructions from their trainers? any examples?
I think alot of boxers try, but when the bell rings and it's time to fight some tend to do what their trainer says for a few seconds, or a hot minute then completely stop and do their own thing...which then leads to something going bad for them.
Why do so many boxers stop using their trainer's instructions?
I think of the zab judah and khan fight were, pernell kept telling zab to let his hands go but zab just wouldn't do it, he had the defense there, and he was more patient on throwing his punches, but he didn't want to step it up at all it seems, his defense was alright, if he would have stepped up his offensive output a little more he could have made the fight 5x better than what it was.
I've seen fighter's use a jab consistently in one round against a fighter, have it work for them in a major way, for them to abandon it in the next round and get hit with a bunch of good shots from their opponent, some even go on to lose the fight..
you think they would watch the tape, come in their NEXT fight and use the jab more but no, they do the same thing and that opponent too catch them with good shots.
