Adesanya needs to work on his boxing skills, says Tuinov

Russian kickboxer Vladislav Tuinov suggested what the former UFC champion needs to improve Israel Adesanya in the next fights.

Sean Strickland defeated Israel Adesanya via unanimous decision to win the UFC middleweight title at UFC 293 on Sunday.

— In order to take revenge on Strickland and not alternate victories and defeats, Adesanya must work on his boxing skills. His punches are good for kickboxing, but he doesn’t have much firepower in his recent fights. Israel managed to lure Alex Pereira into a trap and ensure that the blow was not visible. To compete through boxing in a fight where you are not successful, you need to improve your skills and bring your hands closer to your body – this will add speed to your punch.

It should be noted that the hands became fast, boxing and very clumsy. With Adesanya’s reach, he would be very comfortable with jabs and double punches. I’m not talking about blows to the jaw or temple, but directly to the nose – this blow is practically invisible. The nasal septum is not iron – blood begins to flow, breathing becomes more difficult. For an athlete who pushes forward and imposes his momentum, a broken nose can make a big difference. Adesanya tried to throw a deceptive jab, then hit a side kick, or kick to the head or body, Tuinov told RB Sport.
