About Dallas Martial Arts Examiner Ted Gambordella
Grandmaster Ted Gambordella is a World Famous Martial Arts and Fitness Author of 38 books, and 24 DVD's. He is a 9th degree black belt, member of 7 Hall of Fames, and one of the Fittest Men in America. He advanced reasons why Pacquiao will win against Mayweather in the bout hailed as the super fight of the decade. He discussed his reasons why "anyone who uses logical thinking and not emotions will realize why Pacquiao will beat Floyd".
Reason Number 1
Pacquiao knows how to execute the so-called "one-inch punch". Through the use of this technique- Gambordella predicts Pacquiao will lay some power punches on Floyd's head. By the 6th round, Mayweather won't be able to keep running and will start getting hurt. This techniques is done this way, Gambordella teaches: Shift your hips and snap your punches at the point of impact. Drop your hips, explode through your legs and drive your punches through your opponent. The more snap and pop you put into your punches- the more power you'll have. You can't punch hard when you are running backward, bobbing and weaving. Mohammed Ali, Bruce Lee and lots of Martial Arts Masters haved used this particular technique to their advantage.
Reason Number 2
Pacquiao's steel-like chin. He can take a punch and give a harder one. According to Gambordella- Manny "can take dozens of punches to set up his punches and finish the fight. He has a chin of steel and he is absolutely fearless when fighting another man. He will take one to give 3 back".
Reason Number 3
Pacquiao is tough. As compared to Mayweather- Pacquiao's body is tougher, stronger and can take punches. Gambordella said: "We don't know how well Floyd can take body punches because he is such a good runner. But we do know that Manny can take the body punch and give 10 to his opponents".
Reason Number 4
Pacquiao is the better fighter, not the better runner. Mayweather's plan to beat Pacquiao by running, bobbing and weaving will not work. The judges will not award him the victory verdict because he can run and elude punches well. They will- if he's the better boxer-but he's not. Mayweather can win a running race, catch a football running and win a game- but will not win a boxing bout by just running away. Sooner- Pacquiao-who will not follow Mayweather around- will cut the ring off instead to catch and pound him so as to collect the prize.
Reason Number 5
Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach is a better trainer than Mayweather's Roger Mayweather. Compared to Roger who's totally outrageous- Freddie is cool, calm and collected. According to Gambordella- Mayweather had accused Pacquiao of using steroids, called boxers names, insulted celebrities and makes utterly insane and offensive comments any time he get the chance. He's never in control. He runs his mouth like Floyd runs around the ring and that is why Floyd is going to get beat".
This was Gambordella's analysis of the supposed super fight that was calendared to take place on March 13, 2010. Will his prediction still holds water if Pacquiao-Mayweather match pushes through?
