Boxing to watch on boxing day …

I realise that the origin of the holiday name is not the sport, but it’s a great chance to catch up on two fight of the year contenders, both coming out of the World Boxing Super Series program (both available for free on youtube):

1) Taylor vs Prograis
2) Inoue vs Donaire

A quick note to explain why these fights are so compelling to re-watch: In both cases the less fancied fighter (by betting odds & general commentators’ opinions) comes in with a well put together strategy for the fight which they execute with skill and determination, the favorite is surprised at not having things go immediately their own way but is then able to make tactical adaptations to get themselves back into the fight.
