Discipline is what was one of the most impressive things about Usyk's performance.
He tried to clown a bit, loosen up - usually a sign of frustration.
We've seen this happen many times before - a young strong fighter gets discouraged by a slicker weaker more mature opponent.
He stiffens up, makes more mistakes as the fight progresses and ends up with a mildly controversial lackluster win on his hands.
But it's the second fight in a row in which Usyk, despite his inexperience, overcomes problems through sticking to the right gameplan, even if it feels uncomfortable.
Gassiev vs. Glowacki in play. Absolutely phenomenal fight from a stylistic standpoint. Not sure if Glowacki's hard counters can break Gassiev's iron mandible, though. Very good match. Um, I'm thinking 50-50, but I'm pretty new to this division compared to some of you guys. I'm leaning towards Gassiev here, though.
This will have been a short title reign from Huck. Briedis is a really shitty matchup for him. A boxer type like Usyk, Mchunu or Drozd can beat Briedis. A slugger like Huck not. He knocked out Charr ffs.
