Freddie Roach tycker att Ronda Rousey är en bra boxare
Ronda Rousey (12-0) kommer att försvara sin bantamviktstitel mot Holly Holm (9-0) på UFC 193 och boxningstränaren Freddie Roach tror att matchen kommer vara över om den hamnar på mattan.
Roach förklarar att Rousey är en bra boxare, men att hon har så mycket mer erfarenhet på mattan att hon kommer att köra över Holm totalt om matchen hamnar i backen.
“Holly was a good boxer, she beat some good fighters. Maybe they were a little bit older when she fought them, Mia St. John. She does have some good wins, she has 33 wins and maybe three losses. She has a good record. But, the female boxing never really caught on like Ronda Rousey has. Ronda is just huge right now. The thing is, she knows the ground game so much better than boxing. I like Ronda to win that fight pretty easily. People ask me if she can beat me in a fight, well I am 55 and I know nothing about the ground game, but if she gets me in a lock, I have no idea what to do with it. So yes, she can beat me. Ronda is on top of things. People like her and I used to do mitts with her a long time ago and it was a lot of fun. But she has stepped up and is high up there right now and I wish her the best of luck. She’s not the best boxer in the world, but she is good. She is very competitive and she tries really hard. I mean, it’s not probably the best thing she does, I think she is better at the ground game. But again, she is more experienced there. But her boxing is good. The girl she is fighting is a good boxer, also. While they stand up it will be a good fight, but once it goes to the ground, I think Ronda will destroy her.”
