A Great Fighter To Model In Your Boxing Training Workouts.

In my previous post I talked about how Aaron is such a great student of boxing. Well James Toney was too. Watch his high light clip below and watch the old school techniques and moves he displayed against GREAT opposition. Jame's second trainer Bill Miller would lend James tapes of Jersey Joe Walcott, Archie Moore, Ezzard Charles, Sugar Ray Robinson and Rocky Marciano. James would study and break their movements down on video while adding those old school skills to his own style in the gym with relentless practice.

The result is what you see in this clip. Look at how James rolls, dips, slides, and counters punches in close quarters. Look at how he effectively fought of the ropes. Watch the Barkley fight and how James would pivot while chopping Iran Barkley up in the inside with body head combos while constantly turning Iran. Brilliant skills and James will tell you he owes this to his passionate study of the past old time greats.

Tell me, what other fighter today displays skills like this besides Mayweather? If you want to save some study time, watch a prime James Toney go to work. Then do what he did, bring the skills to life in the gym with hard work.
