The hate on Maynard is hilarious. It mostly comes from the butt-hurt fans of his victims. When Edgar brings a non-violent, pressure-based attack for 3-5 rounds, he gets praised as one of the best pound-for-pounders in the world. When Maynard does it, people bitch and call it lay-and-praying. Regardless, his style is the perfect style to beat Edgar. He will be the next champ.
I’m confused……is Maynard not getting a title shot? I guess it was implied but not officially stated.
Also, for all the haters–>Maynard’s boxing is decent when he doesn’t get sloppy (or emotional) & wing loopy punches. Edgar’s boxing is fantastic. He’s not a power puncher but the days of 1 punch KO guys @ the higher levels are going away. Edgar tagged BJ cleanly several times (while himself, barely getting touched). BJ’s chin is fucking adamantium.
None of it matters though. Maynard is good enough on the feet to get it to the ground where he will win the belt & probably wreck PPV #’s for whatever event follows his.
