Quotes

#Quote
1I'd take precision any day over power; as far as being tactical you know you have to see what's going on in there and also understand that for every punch that you or your opponent throws there's always a counter shot or two which you have to be ready to fire or defend.
2I don't think people really understand that this [boxing] is a real sport; it's just you and the other person one on one.
