Most professional fighters, MMA or Boxing, possess the ability to slip potentially-devastating blows. Sometimes not all punches can be dodged completely, though. What makes a fighter truly world-class is their ability to take an offensive onslaught in a way that softens the impact and allows them to remain on their feet. Cushioning the impact in such a way sets them up for a counter-attack equal to or greater than the original offensive.
Last week, I was fortunate enough to meet a couple of world-class fighters in the ring of life. For the past 8 years, Kegan and Latanza have certainly taken their fair share of haymakers. They’re still standing, though, and it’s clear that they have no intentions of backing down.
