    lol only a true warrior would say that, no surprise then that the quote comes from a legend such as Oscar De La Hoya

    You don't think about losing you go in their with the mentality to knock the opponents head clean off with each blow/punch.

    " punches with bad intentions"

    thats the mentality one must have.   Also its essential you have mastered the art of evading punches to some degree ,  counter punching AND good foot and head movement.

    Dont are if you're the hardest puncher on the planet, if you barely move your head or position in the ring the ring you're just as dangerous as a bronze statue in the middle of a ring lol

    either move and punch or get punched lol

    I mean not for me.  But have you ever watched Roberto Duran when he was a lightweight.  It was like he enjoyed getting hit.  Sometimes he had to get hit some very hard shots before he started doing his damage.  He lived for it and I truly believe he enjoyed being hit.  Of course older Duran fighting too many weight divisions up probably did not enjoy getting Hit by the Hearns right.  Well if he can even remember it.
