What…? Ok, I’ll save the commentary until after you guys have had a chance to watch the fight. As always thanks to KimJudas for ripping, Nucknick1 for uploading and sharing. Many thanks to Gusnark, for hunting these down and emailing them my way. Enjoy!
So thoughts? I think there was a moment there where he was out on his feet, he didn’t know what was up. Dida just kept hammering with that haymaker and he just kept taking it. It’s like Dida hit the spot in Buakaw’s brain that turned off his kicking ability. Was it me or did it seem as if Buakaw was much easier to hit? I don’t want to take anything away from Dida, I think he performed. Dida’s jab just seemed to connect effortlessly. I’m sure he’s got solid boxing skills, but Buakaw seem content to just keep his chin down and eat some punches.
Maybe Buakaw needs to get his clock cleaned in the early rounds to improve his work rate. I think if Dida hadn’t gassed so soon, Buakaw wouldn’t have found his stride. It always seems like when Buakaw is down and his opponent can pressure him he just ends up head hunting and swinging for the fences. I think because Dida was pretty much through by the 2nd, we got a glimpse of the old Buakaw. The one who would stalk and kick the shit out of his opponents.
I know a lot of you are probably dissapointed with his performance, but It was good to get a glimpse at the old Buakaw we love.
