Thread Name: BS: Justin Trudeau (Canuck MP) boxing match
Subject: RE: BS: Justin Trudeau (Canuck MP) boxing match
I found what usually happens, happened. A boxer and karate guy fight. The rules become boxing rules (and karate fighters usually use four weapons to fight and boxers two). Every single time I have gone up against a boxer I've had my clock cleaned. A boxer who was training in karate with whom I sparred often told me that the tempo of the fight changed when he had to move to kick, so mostly he boxed. Matches--as was the Brazeau/Trudeau one--are usually won by boxers.

I agree with gnu: I think grand-standing and acting cute after you win are not good things to show the world. It's often (as has been pointed out or implied by Gnu and meself) the result of training and ONE good shot (punch) and imo that's what it was in this case. The punch near the late middle part of round two. Neither fighter was in shape for the ordeal, but certainly Trudeau had the edge. And one more thing: under many karate-type martial arts, it is 'illegal' to punch to the head. As Brazeau had stated in pre-fight hype, he intended to work Trudeau's body, but that's a karate fighter thinking. Legs are longer than arms. And when it came to arms, Trudeau had the reach. IMO.
