How To Beat Errol Spence Jr

How Errol Spence Jr Fights

Throughout his boxing career, Errol Spence Jr has shown a tendency to walk down his opponents in an attempt to get them into striking range. If Errol is successful, he will repeatedly throw the right jab to get the opponent to stand still and block the punch.

Once this happens, Spence will look to get his lead right foot around the opponent’s lead foot to eliminate the small space between them. If he can achieve the goal, Errol Spence will throw a right hook to the body followed by a left hook or straight left to the body.

For instance, against Chris Algieri, Errol repeatedly threw the right jab until Algieri decided to cover up. After Chris covered up, he moved his lead right foot around Algieri’s lead left foot and proceeded to throw a right hook to the body followed by a left hook or straight left to the body.

How To Beat Errol Spence Jr

However, one can argue that Errol Spence Jr’s fighting style will be the catalyst for his first loss. This is because every time he moves forward to close the distance, Errol always maintains his hands at or above the jawline.

Due to this, Spence is continuously giving his opponents an opportunity to land punches to the body without resistance.

As a result of this, when Errol Spence Jr comes forward, his opponent should look to duck under the jab and throw one or two punches to the body. Once the opponent is done, he should circle out of striking range in either direction.

The game plan should force Errol to regularly reset and slowly drain him of energy. If the opponent can successfully implement the game plan for the first half of the fight,

 Errol should become more of a stationary target in the latter half. As a result, he should have the opportunity to stand his ground and throw more power punches.

Floyd Mayweather Will Take It Easy On Conor McGregor To Open The Door For A Rematch

Throughout this week, there have been several reports stating that the bout agreement for Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor had been finalized. In fact, according to Yahoo Sports, the fight will take place on August 26th “at the MGM Grand Garden or T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.” Although most people expect this fight to be a one-time event, there is a reason to believe that Floyd will take it easy on Conor; to open up the door for a rematch in the future. This is because, for the past year, the potential fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor has been a constant topic of conversation among the mainstream media. As a result, the media knows that the build up to the fight is bound to have several moments that are meant to create constant conversation among fans. Due to this, media members will continue to talk about the fight until it happens since it is an easy way to boost radio/TV ratings or website traffic. Eventually, the hype for this fight will be so big which will make Floyd realize that there is a possibility to make more money in the second fight with Conor; if he lets Conor win a few rounds. As a result of this, Floyd could have a strategy where he allows Conor back him up against the ropes during the first half of the fight. Giving McGregor several opportunities to land the straight left without being afraid that Floyd will circle out to the right. Due to this, judges will be forced to score some of the early rounds for Conor because he is throwing more punches. However, once the second half of the fight starts, Floyd will begin to control the fight by throwing the left jab and circling out to the right which means that he will be landing and moving away before Conor can counter.

Although Mayweather will end up winning the fight, the media and casual fans will start to push the narrative that a fighter with no boxing experience was able to compete with Floyd thus imagine what he could do with more experience.  As a result, McGregor will try to convince the UFC that he should take another boxing match against an opponent who will make him look good. On the other hand, he could inform the UFC that he is taking a couple more months off to further his boxing skills. If either of these situations happens, the media and casual fans will start to say he has a better chance of beating Mayweather because he gained more experience thus a second fight needs to happen. Therefore Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will book a second fight with the premise that the public wants to see it. When in reality, Floyd would have manipulated the public into thinking this because he sees an opportunity to earn more money.

Canelo Álvarez vs. Julio César Chávez Jr Prediction: Chávez Should Upset Canelo

Throughout his last three fights, Saul Canelo Álvarez has shown a tendency to constantly try to walk down his opponents in an attempt to get them into striking range. Once this happens, he will throw a left jab followed by a straight right hand with the intention of getting their opponents to focus on blocking the combination. If the opponent decides to stand still and prevents the combination, it gives him a small window of opportunity to attack the exposed body by throwing a left or right hook. On the other hand, if the opponent decides to avoid the combination by taking a few steps back and circling out of striking range; he will throw the lead left hook to momentarily stop their movement thus giving him time to get back into striking range. During this period, Canelo has gone undefeated because his opponents didn’t have the stamina to continuously circle out of range and then a counter throughout the course of 12 rounds. Due to this, some opponents are forced to give into his pressure because they would attempt to cut angles and experience early fatigue from a lack of stamina which would put them in a position to have to exchange with him. On the other hand, some opponents came to the conclusion that they were better off trading punches with him because they were aware of the fact that they didn’t have the stamina to cut angles.

Although this strategy has given Canelo so much success, there are a few flaws within this strategy that can be easily exploited. For instance, when Canelo is trying to avoid his opponent’s punches he tends to sway his upper body backward or simply duck under the punch. As a result, he can defend the punches without having to leave his striking range. However, his style of defense should give Julio Cesar Chavez Jr many opportunities to close the distance and attack the body. For example, when they are in the pocket together Chavez Jr can throw the left jab to make him sway his upper body backward. Once this happens, Chavez Jr has a couple of seconds to completely close the distance and start attacking the body with hooks. After a couple of rounds, Canelo should start to incorporate some movement because he realizes that it is not good to trade punches with a larger man in close quarters. Due to this, he should start to stick and move for a few rounds but eventually get tired because he isn’t used to fighting that way thus forcing him back to square one. Therefore I expect Chavez to win via late stoppage or decision.
