@1:05 - Tafon: "Started with football then went to wrestling" @2:18 - Coaches: "when Tefon came in he had no wrestling experience" So which is it?!

Is this the guy that is huge for his weight class? You know what I mean...the guy that tries to get the advantage rather than fight in his own weight class or rather his true weight class. Is this that guy? It's easy to be Mr. Unstoppable when you're bigger than everyone and can take their punches with ease because you're that much larger on fight night, 20- 30 lbs in fact. I don't know what you call them but we call them chicken shit. Anyone woulf be willing to fight someone they have a huge advantage over. Doesn't take much courage. Is this that guy? I'll be honest I didn't even watch the video. I don't care. I saw a guy fight someone last night named Pickett and this example came to mind. Although, if you can't even knock out someone you outweigh by 20-30lbs then I think we all know the reason you are not at your true weight class, bum. The only reason he looks so powerful is because he's in there with people a lot smaller so of course he will look like a powerhouse. It's embarrasing really. It'd be like watching a freshman beat up some 6th graders. People always trying to get the advantage in life instead of just working hard for it. Fighting is no different. Especially fighting because there are a lot of fragile egos and insecure minds at play.

Tafon Nchukwi vs Jamie Pickett - interesting fight and match-up, Nchukwi is young, super physical, naturally very heavy handed and has got the hype behind him - Pickett prior to his last fight he didnt look that great, but his last fight he showed up using his range really nicely with straight shots, head kicks, was able to shoot, explode - I think Pickett at his best can win this fight, as he can control the range, use his kicks and can mix it up with takedowns - Nchukwi will come forward, good pressure, great power, but so far he showed to be primarily a standard kickboxer -pick and bet Pickett at +270 My channel for complete breakdown and my consistent and transparent strategy - 370% profit from July 2020 - all transparent and recorded, check it out

If you want to represent cameroon, go move back there. I’m really sick of people moving to America to represent other countries. It’s different for the Olympics, which I understand. And I’m not talking about people from other countries like Joanna who just come over from poland to train at ATT before a fight. That’s fine. She’s not am american citizen living in America. If Cameroon is so wonderful please go back there to live. Make Cameroon great.
