Hidalgo or Tark….Please define boxing fundamentals for me. I do not mean the the word ‘fundamentals’, I mean what is the fundamental base for a boxer. I do not mean a particular boxer,but all boxers. I do not mean variations of boxing fundamentals ,but those set in place in the 1940’s used up until the year 2000 in America …..God bless….kenny weldon….anyone can answer this if you wish.This is common sense boxing to any coach or trainer in America.

He hit Buchanan right n the stones way way after the bell n never gave him a sniff of a rematch

As a lightweight Duran wanted to stay extremely busy. He believed the more he fought the more he learned. “I fought more than any other champion. Many non-title fights. Everytime I get hit hard I went over the tape again and again and figured out just what I did wrong and what I can do so I never got hit in just that way again. Leonard was bigger than me. The reason I beat Leonard is not because I outfought him like everyone says. I outboxed him. I was too slick for him in our first fight. If you look at the 2nd round I punched him really good with a hook from the outside because he made a big mistake. If he was a lightweight I would have knocked him out right there. I had crazy ambition when I was young but most people get lazy when they get rich. I struggled for so many years that I finally took a break after I beat Leonard and went up to 200 pounds. I didn’t care what anyone said or what they thought of my behavior. Screw them. My career was up and down after that because I never busted my tail again. I paid my dues so let me enjoy myself—what did you ever do CSer??? That was my attitude.”

Hidalgo…..You are correct.Ray Arcel was a blender and Roberto Duran was a complete fighter. Duran could punch well with both hands and as AN AGGRESSOR was capeable of taking anyone to the ropes and keeping them there. Regardless of a boxers skill,his heart was going to be tested by Duran.Duran was an exception rather than the rule in many cases,but even Duran dis a few things wrong which made him beatable.He kept his chin up and had bad feet Ray Arcel made much better.Leonard was never a match for a peak Roberto Duran and he too had his negatives(3) that were very beatable by a good fighter with a good “blender” in his corner. Duran beat Leonard on the ropes and in the corner in the first fight.He also continued pursuit and caught Leonard in retreat many times.He took away Leonards attempts to bait him by giving leonard wide angles before attacking.Ray Arcel was a master “BLENDER”……..God bless…kenny weldon

Mad Scientist, you agree with me? Cool, let’s see what else we can agree on.

“Donaire won’t prove a thing until he fights the top guys” Really? Donaire knocked out Darchinyan and took his flyweight belts when Darchinyan was in his prime in 2007. Who else has done that to Darchinyan? Oh yeah: Donaire came down in weight class to fight Vic, and, he was a big underdog going into that fight.

Excuse me Kenny, I meant to say Roberto Duran was sparring with EXPERIENCED boxers by the age of 8 years old–not with “professional” boxers.

“Punchers are born,not made. Fighters are made ,not born .Of course all is dependent upon who is teaching the boxer.” Well, yes and no. I have said a number of times in the past, that a good trainer can teach a boxer to maximize his power, and even though Nonito has amazingly natural power for his size, knowing how to effectively use and deliver that power is what makes him such a devastating KO puncher. But, just one thing, what say you about Roberto Duran who was sparring with professional boxers by the age of 8 years old, then a professional at the age of 16? I think Roberto was a natural-born fighter. Then, Ray Arcel made him a better fighter. Much better.

E in Denver .SOME Boxers are born with power.
No boxing trainer in the world can teach you to be a power puncher unless you were born with it.Good coaches who teach fundamental correctness can recognize and build around a natural punchers power.If it is not there ,they are capeable of developing what a boxer does have to be as good as it can be at an elite level.Punchers are born,not made. Fighters are made ,not born .Of course all is dependent upon who is teaching the boxer.

Speed is easy to beat if the opponent fights around it as though it alone will win for him.It takes many elements of the fight game to win at an elite level. Speed is only one of the many. Skill will always beat any one element of the game ,if prepaired well to do so.The same can be said of power if did as one tool.Few have all ,but those who have earned the respect of the world of boxing.Developing a boxer around either or both ,still leaves negatives which with the right skills can be beaten by a well schooled opponent.Always remember ,natural skills are born to a fighter,not great fundamentals .They are taught to beat an opponents negatives ,through varriations .Remember,a boxer does not beat what another does good. He beats what his opponent does bad.This is where the term ‘styles make fights’ comes from. Great teachers of the sport have known and acted on this for 100 years. These teachers have always been called “Blenders”…….God bless…..kenny weldon

Nonito is not KO’ing anybody easy anytime soon.He can’t finish a smaller narvaez,jr or mathebula & he’s definitely not having it easy with a top 5 122lb.Feed him to rigo already.The Cuban wanted(arce,jr,nonito,nishioka but sadly nobody wants to test themselves).Don’t blame rigo for not stepping up he called out the whole 122lb division & accepts all comers to take that easy belt he said.

Ive seen Nishioka’s last 5 fights and think Donaires in for a tough one. Im going for Nishioka based on what I saw versus Munroe and Donaires fight with Vasquez.

Posted October 2, 2012 5:53 pm 


The Japanese has to get inside. Keep it at arms’ bay it’s Donaire’s all night. Nishioko is a great fighter but really needs to pull out all his tools in this one. If he does, he can win.

Posted October 2, 2012 4:31 pm 


mares beat Vic darchinian by sd. donaire knocked him out. who has rigo fought by the way? this is a tough division with a lot of great fighters willing to fight each other. mares vs Moreno will be nice too.

Posted October 2, 2012 3:54 pm 


Donaire will easily KO Nishioka. I will leave town for good if he doesn’t. Jhonny Gonzalez never could fight southpaws and never had a chin. Total glass jaw, and Marquez was well past his prime. It’s all an illusion. Nishioka gets knocked out. Just wait and see. And get back to me after the fight.

Posted October 2, 2012 3:41 pm 


Nishioka BEAT Rafael Marquez by UD and Jhonny Gonzalez by 1 punch KO!
He’s NO punk!

power is learned? Fighters can learn to sit down on their punches. But if you dont have {( power nobody can teach it to you. If that is the case don’t you think Malinaggi would have signed up for that class years ago?

Nishioka is a nobody! No one has even seen or heard of this guy, and all of a sudden he’s the greatest fighter nobody has seen. I saw a few of his videos, and he has nothing. The media builds up these guys to make Donaire look better than he is. Notice how he avoids Mares, Rigondeux Moreno and the other guys. Donaire won’t prove a thing until he fights the top guys, which Mares continues to do. He will stop Donaire before 10 rounds if Donaire ever gets the guts to fight a true complete fighter that can punch and has excellent skills.
