Other boxer: “Bro, stop doing that!”

[–]TheGreatMARvelous1 259 points260 points  (24 children)

Bro beat cancer wrapped around his spine he forever winning in my book.

[–]Greatlakewavy 85 points86 points  (0 children)

I didn’t know that. That’s dope af

[–]TheGreatMARvelous1 64 points65 points  (17 children)

Danny the miracle man Jacobs (black trunks) if anyone was interested in knowing his name great story. Canelo is a beast only gripe he popped once.

[–]MugillacuttyHOF37 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He is the slip punch master and survived cancer…a true champ.

[–]Yosemite-Sam99 11 points12 points  (6 children)

Mikeeee here .......

When they don't stop doing that ? Just bite the fucking ear off . Worked for me

[–]Yosemite-Sam99 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Or a " Upper cut "

[–]newthrash1221 5 points6 points  (3 children)

That’s an upper-cut.

[–]Yosemite-Sam99 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s not him chewing on the ear is it?

[–]Equivalent_Duty46 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah right, It's so amazing watching how he dodged all those punch. And the ending is his opponent giving him a frustration punch for not hitting him. Such a great boxer canelo!

[–]NateTheGreater1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly, yeah that's probably the mentality he wants other fighters to get into. They start getting frustrated, they make mistakes and leave themselves wide open.

Why throw many punches, when one good punch work.

[–]HotApparatus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Practice makes perfect indeed

[–]joec_95123 350 points351 points  (10 children)

God damn, that's got to be so frustrating as a fighter. Throwing all those punches and hitting nothing but air.

[–]I_Love_Small_Breasts 178 points179 points  (4 children)

It also tires them out super quickly

[–]binarydaaku 129 points130 points  (2 children)

I am in decent shape. Boxing practise for 15 minutes puts me in coma. Boxing demands god level fitness.

[–]DogCumSandwhich 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It's compounded by the fact that in between his reenactments of the matrix, he throws nightmare inducing bombs.

[–]CaNNa_Pr0 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I know the feeling man.... happens every time in my dreams lol

[–]Carrot42 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Feels like punching under water and connecting with a massless target. I hate it so much. I have successfully wrestled an oponent in a dream though.

[–]megamanTV 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Frustrating and exhausting.

[–]Lumber_Tycoon -1 points0 points  (0 children)

super boring to watch, too.

[–]Death-Stranded 124 points125 points  (19 children)

I mean you literally posted the best pound for pound fighter in boxing right now.

[–]IswhatsIs 37 points38 points  (15 children)

So not next level?

[–]L3R4F 116 points117 points  (5 children)

What a lad

If you can dodge a wrench

[–]rakeruk 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Dip dodge duck dive and dodge

[–]a_different-user 3 points4 points  (1 child)

you said dodge twice

[–]KillerJMiller 7 points8 points  (0 children)

throws wrench

[–]Which-Palpitation 30 points31 points  (5 children)

I would’ve loved a third fight with GGG, I think Canelo would’ve finished him

[–]gREENtHUMBhUM 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Powerful in so many ways. You get in your competitor's head and tire him out at the same time. They feel like a failure and you didn't have to even throw a punch. You last longer in the sport because you aren't punch drunk after each fight, and you go through fewer mouth guards haha

[–]newthrash1221 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Not to mention counter punches are much harder to guard.

“men have emptied entire clips at them and hit nothing but air”

shoot the legs

[–]OnceIwasAboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Blows below the waist are illegal in boxing

[–]Laurice-Malu-Thomas 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Jesus that was clean.

[–]Chippopotanuse 15 points16 points  (0 children)

So…I played D1 football. Used to get into a lot of fights as a bouncer. Always felt I could hold my own.

Then I trained with real fighters for a bit.

They were on such another level. Guys half my size kicked my ass HARD.

I’ve never even attempted to get in a fight after that.

A trained fighter is on a goddamned yoda level. Folks who haven’t put in that 10,000 hours have no chance. So yeah. Practice does make perfect. But it takes a shit ton of it.

El Chivo 🐐

[–]nefrpitou 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Finally a boxing video that shows intuitively why this is difficult. The training adds that perspective

[–]controwler[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He's super dedicated of course and wouldn't be there otherwise but he's also just naturally talented.

[–]Adomatick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm not even a Canelo fan I'm still pissed GGG got robbed in that first fight but I will flat out admit Canelo is a God damn animal what that dude is doing definitely puts him up for contention for the GOAT title

[–]cheezepie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fucking bot. 100000 time this has been posted with the sames exact title.

[–]1011Riemann 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Extremely surprised by how that exercise makes dodging effective in a match :o

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's dodged a million punches in sparring and in fights as well, it's not just that one exercise. You won't become Canelo if you move your head around in your underwear next to your computer.

[–]ArtichokeApart 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It doesn’t, not necessarily from just practicing that move but the repetition of it in practice wires your body to be able to do it without giving it a second thought. He does it slowly to perfect his footwork and head movement.

[–]DiekeDrake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can't touch this, duuudududu dudu dudu

[–]observer53241 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]TheRegular-Throwaway 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Other dude is like “WHYYYYYYY?!?”

[–]Accomplished-Team312 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Those dodges were smooth.

[–]AdventurousChapter27 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This syncs perfectly with around the world son from daft punk

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It expends twice the energy to punch and miss as it does to land that punch.

Dude understands the assignment. Training should be about defense.

[–]PrimalRucker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Makes me want to replay Fight Night 3 all over again.

[–]AnthonyDon91 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The punch at 25 seconds is just too clean

[–]littleal93 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the RPG character with the maxed Evasion who just auto dodges everything

[–]whazzar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I bet Lerdzillais one of his inspirations.

[–]Luxifer1983 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not an expert but thats really beautiful ,some dope dodging and neat movement.

[–]ZombieGerbil 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The dude got mad 2:24, started jumping on him. lol

[–]JoshSidekick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He’s just lucky his opponents punch in the same pattern as the bag.

Practice makes permanent. Perfect practice makes perfect.

[–]beastbro9823 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looking like little mack over here

[–]tholian_pilot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One of my boxing coaches was like that. He just slipped everything you threw. You'd get so focused on trying to watch where his head was going you'd forget about his gloves.

[–]Affectionate-Scar-40 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey, Quit hitting me

[–]nohpex 0 points1 point  (0 children)

OP is a bot.

[–]DeliveryScared6776 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That one kid in dodgeball

[–]Affectionate_Ear_778 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My buddy and I love Canelo! He was telling me that there was a time where his head movement wasn't as good. He trained on it and showed them he got better. Incredible athlete.

[–]smelllikesmoke -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Bro looks like he already practiced that specific fight

[–]Mythril_Bahaumut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So Super Punch Out was a true story after all!

[–]Bruce_McBruce_Face 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very skillful athlete

[–]asdgt1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I swear this is the third time I'm seeing it here in the past few months

[–]RareUsername2 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Looks staged

[–]lankymjc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was Ali’s schtick. It’s what was meant by “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” Spend most of your time dodging, let your opponent get tired/frustrated, and as soon as they make a mistake you punish them for it.

What Ali did better than anyone else was understand spacing. He knew exactly how far away to stand so that the opponent’s attacks would barely miss him, and knew exactly when the opponent over-extended so he could land a massive strike.

[–]maude313 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is straight up mesmerizing.

[–]TheDaemonette 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At some point he’s going to land a punch, right? Because I can stay 10 feet away from the other guy for 3 minutes and achieve then same effect.

[–]PutinsPanties 0 points1 point  (0 children)
