Most of this will be fluff to fulfill the word criteria. But the question I have for all you fine gents is this: does anyone know any hand-wrapping techniques that help better support the thumb? I wrap my hands the "normal" way using one hand wrap per hand for all bag work and sometimes my right thumb gets jammed up pretty good. And now a poem:
"Coward!" the braggarts shout,
And you grin and dance some more.
Who frowns on that style
Might better take one in the mouth
Before opening theirs, tis true.
But though you give the appearance of floating,
Boxer, glory is lost when guts are put aside.
And a cerebral explanation is lost,
On even yourself when your fists have failed,
Failed to move as rapidly as your mouth, your feet,
Or the flickering camera's catching all the things you wish
Flickered a life time more.
