Except Chowder. IT’S CHOWDAH! SAY IT RIGHT FRENCHY
If my total lack of knowledge of the French language is serving me, then the youtube description says that this is from the album ‘L’Esquisse 2′. Either that or it’s a form of cologne.

Someone over at Rossboxing.com posted this very cool footage of Chris Eubank sparring and hitting the bag. Along with it comes some knowledge from Eubank himself.
When you throw a punch, you’re exposed. So the key is to throw the least amount of punches as possible. To do that, you have to make every punch count. That was my philosophy of accurate boxing, of skillful defensive boxing.
In regards to striking, it was letting the punch go at the right time. Imagine target practice – you’re finger is on the trigger and what you’ve got is a moving target. Timing is apprehension, which comes from thousands of hours of sparring wars. It’s striking just before or just after the attack of the opponent, of which when they are most vulnerable. That was my philosophy of skillful offensive boxing.
What one must do, to be a skilled practitioner of the art, is to blend those two examples, those two philosophies, into one. I’m trying to keep it simple, and I believe that’s quite a straight-forward way to explain careful application of the art.
In regards to striking technique, speed is key. I say that because speed is accuracy. By speed, I don’t the mean the speed of which the glove travels through the air. I mean the speed of which the glove travels to the target, which is all about unwasted motion. The sooner the glove reaches the target, the more likely it is that it is going to land.
My glove positioning, if you watch my fights, was based on that theory. If you fight with a high guard, you have to move your hands away from your face to throw a punch – wasted motion. If you fight with hands by your sides, you have to lift them in execution of the punch – wasted motion. That’s why I held my gloves together at stomach height – it made it difficult for opponents to work out what punch was coming next, and when I struck, I would execute the punch with virtually no back-pull, and that made it very difficult for opponents to react fast enough.
Brain over brawn, it’s how I won 97.5% of the fights. Brain over brawn… brain, over, brawn.
I’m still trying to decide if i care about this one. I guess i kinda do, i mean if this fight were a person, and it had a birthday – i’d probably write ‘happy birthday’ on it’s facebook wall. But i wouldn’t use an exclamation point or a smiley face.

This is probably a wise move for Earl. He never looked the same after the first bout, and I think it’s for the best that he doesn’t get back in there against Kats.
Graham Earl Pulls Out, Michael Lozada Will Now Face Michael Katsidis In August; Katsidis-Morales Could Be Next!
By James Slater: In what was almost certainly a wise move, 32-year-old “Earl Of Luton” Graham Earl has pulled out of his planned rematch with Australia’s Michael Katsidis. As soon as news broke of how Earl was in the running to face Katsidis in a return of their hugely exciting 2007 showdown (which Katsidis won via 5th-round retirement), fans almost everywhere were aghast. Quite simply, Earl looked a shot fighter in his post-Katsidis bouts, being blown away twice in two of the three fights he had.
Yet Earl was insistent he was still in shape to fight, and a return with “The Great” was on for Australia later this year. Or at least it was. Fightnews.com has reported how, after a breakdown in contract negotiations between Earl’s camp and that of Katsidis, the Toowoomba warrior will now face Mexico’s Michael Lozada, 38-8(30). This fight will take place on August 13th and will almost certainly be a far more competitive affair than Katsidis-Earl II would have been.
The really exciting news, though, is the plan Team-Katsidis has for the next fight for the thrill-a-minute lightweight who will make his 140-pound debut against 27-year-old Lozada: Erik Morales is being targeted as the next opponent for the 30-year-old former interim lightweight champ.
Katsidis’ manager and trainer Brendon Smith told Fightnews how the Lozada fight will very much be a warm-up fight for Mexican legend Morales.
“I had a few discussions with Oscar De La Hoya and the team at Golden Boy and there is big interest in a fight between Michael and Erik Morales,” Smith said. “ That was part of the reason for going with Lozada, we wanted to stick with the Mexican fighting style.”
Needles to say, a Katsidis-Morales clash could well be an explosive, action-packed classic of a fight. 34 year-old “El Terrible” looked almost back to his best with his close loss to Marcos Maidana. Morales really rolled back the years against the somewhat crude, hittable Argentine banger, and there will be no shortage of fans willing to predict Morales will be able to put on a similar, perhaps even better performance against Katsidis.
Katsidis, 27-4(22) is perhaps even more easy to hit than is “El Chino,” as Robert Guerrero discovered on that great April 9th card when he won a wide, largely dominant decision over Katsidis. If the Morales fight is made, the chances are the fight will be looked at as pretty much a 50-50 match-up; where a case could be made for either guy winning. But first Katsidis has to get past Lozada.
Lozada, who used to fight down at super-featherweight, even challenging the late Edwin Valero for the WBA belt back in 2007 (losing via 1st-round KO), has since blown up to welterweight. Loser of two of his last four outings, Lozada recently picked up the non too glorious distinction of being TKO’d by Paulie Malignaggi. “The Magic Man,” himself moving up in weight, bagged his first stoppage win since 2003 with the 6th-round TKO over Lozada last December. In light of how much harder Katsidis hits compared to Malignaggi, Lozada looks to be in trouble.
Still, with that big fight with Morales on the horizon, Katsidis can’t be blamed for taking a “safe-looking” fight in his 140-pound debut. And despite his lack of durability (stopped 6 times in his 8 losses), Lozada can bang – as his 30 KO’s show.
