He’ll give the fighters some trouble with his style.
Allan Green is a moron, a ref isn’t going to stop the count. You still have to beat it. He also had trouble getting up so I’m thinking he was trying to buy time by saying he was hit behind the head, in reality it wasn’t intentional so I doubt it wouldn’t be counted as a knock down. I’m glad to see him out of the tournament.[/quote]
not intentional? he did not hit him behind the head at all…watch the fight again. compare that punch with 2 of the three “rabbit punch” knockdowns Peter gave Wlad K. in their first fight.
Glen hit him right on the ear, as green was turning away and leaning over after being stunned from a previous punch.
You are right though, styles make fights, and Glens straight forward style will give some of those defensive fighters fits.
Glen is the perfect example of how solid boxing fundamentals will carry you a long way in this sport.
Glen keeps his guard high at all times, and stays busy with straight hard punches, he just does not walk in, but he jabs and crosses his way into range.
Plus Glen is physically strong, and anyone who knows anything about fighting and competitive sports at all, knows that strength is the last thing an aging athlete will lose.
AND Glen is tough. so a strong tough old guy with sound fundamentals. he makes for a tough opponent for anybody. He is CONSISTENT too. the beats the guys he should beat, AND he gives tough fights to guys who SHOULD have handled him with no problem. I believe his first fight with Chad Dawson and his fight with Tavaris Cloud both could have been called draws, or even wins for Johnson.
I could talk about Glen all day… like I said , he is one of my favorite fighters.
AND HE IS NOT BIG BIG FAT GUY!
that was for you Irish
