Mangini likes boxing, so I think the analogy is fitting here.
CP at his best is a point fighter. He doesn’t have what it takes to knock anyone out, but when he is on his game he will frustrate the opponent and control with surgical efficiency.

CP at his best is a point fighter. He doesn’t have what it takes to knock anyone out, but when he is on his game he will frustrate the opponent and control with surgical efficiency. He’ll get a whole lot of 10-9 rounds. If he brushes up against a superior opponent though, he will get hammered and look terrible, and start pressing.

Clemens however has KO power. No matter how bad a match is going, if he lands a clean shot he’s right back in it, or he can outright win it. He can rush right into the fray and swarm, at the very least providing excitement to all the spectators. He’ll get you some 10-8 rounds to make up for losing other rounds 10-9.

Now here’s the thing. You can teach skills, but you can’t teach power. You can’t teach a quick release. You can’t teach pocket awareness. These are just tools you are born with, that can be refined and worked on but can’t develop if you don’t already have them. When someone with physical skills develops the technical aspects, that’s why you have something special. When someone has the technical aspects but not the physical parts, they become coaches, and these are frequently the guys that develop the skills in the more physically gifted guys.

Now I’m personally biased I suppose, since I’m a swarmer with KO power myself. But still, I think it’s the more exciting style, and I think it is actually the best to win with. It’s like throwing a football, a guy that has the power can flick it even in not the best circumstances without fully stepping in and making a play, just like in boxing where someone with great power doesn’t need to get full rotation on his punches but can hit someone at a weird angle if the opportunity arises.
