Two Of The Best Body Snatchers In Boxing Displaying The Lost Art of Working The Body... You better be watching!

Magarito showed last weekend in his big win over Kermit Cintron what a great body attack does for a fighter. Having a great body attack will eventually end the fight quick with the opponent twisting with pain on the canvass. Magarito placed that fight ending body shot perfectly and it's fights like this that young fighters must take note of quality body work.

Another fierce body puncher in Miguel Cotto also took care of business last Saturday night. Miguel rips the body HARD and has honed this craft better than any other fighter in the welterweight division, even Margarito I believe. Cotto gets so much damn leverage in his body shots and it's the way he sets them up that make them even harder to deal with.

That is why it's so important to watch body snatchers like Cotto and Magarito go to work. You really see the lost art of setting a fighter up for the energy zapping body shots at its best. There's more to body work than whacking away at a fighters mid section.

Come July when Cotto and Magarito fight one another it will be a night of savage body work on display. Great in fighting is something to behold and model. Trainers and fighters of all ages can and will learn something that you do see often at its finest come July. I know my eyes will be glued to the TV watching these two body snatchers going to work.

PS.... I had Glen Johnson beating Chad Dawson. It's a damn shame that Johnson is probably the most robbed fighter ever in boxing! At near 40 years of age, the dude landed the harder leather and was strong and resilient as hell in the later rounds. Johnson is another old school fighter to watch. He masterfully blocks and rolls with punches, then is in great position to counter with his own hard, not pitty pat punches. That is what boxing is about and it's a damn shame that he isn't being awarded the decision for his great work.
