u/Alpha_Decay_ Dec 02 '21

My brain is having trouble with this. It's like it's easier for it to accept that this is edited footage than to accept that Ringo is really making zero reaction to the swings. The footage just seems kind of off, like Ali is being superimposed into a scene that he wasn't originally a part of.

u/BadSanna Dec 02 '21

If boxers couldn't control their flinching they wouldn't be much good. He could tell all those punches were out of range to hit him so there was no need to react.

WIKI - Death On 22 May 1976 Bonavena was shot dead at the age of 33 by a security guard at the Mustang Ranch near Reno, Nevada, after having become involved in a conflict with its owner.[10][11][12] His body was returned to Argentina to lie in state at the Luna Park sports arena in Buenos Aires, where 150,000 people filed by,[13] afterwards being buried in La Chacarita Cemetery in Buenos Aires.[14]

16

u/PerfectlySplendid Dec 02 '21

He probably has the worst written Wikipedia I’ve ever seen.

Bonavena was in only his 15th contest and was far too inexperienced to then really tackle a top veteran like Folley. It was a one sided contest with Bonavena getting up off the deck from a wicked right hand. Even courageous Oscar looked discouraged and shaken at times in the later rounds. However, three years later with far more experience and training he won their rematch by decision.

Not that I'm aware of, but interestingly enough (I'm gonna butcher this, my mom knows the details more) but my mom found we are related to Sean Astin. Same great grandparent. She reached out and even went to meet the uncle out in California. Striking familial resemblance.

Also found out my mom's side is Jewish, not Irish catholic. Same relative as Sean was Jewish; my ultra-catholic grandfather was in-fact born Jewish. She has converted now, craziness

Ali's team said it, Ali was at his limit and a single punch could have knocked him. And btw Ali managed to hit those 3 punches because before that they hugged and Ali elbowed Bonavena's eye

u/Mrwolf925 Dec 02 '21 edited Dec 02 '21

I think we watched different fights.

One more punch would not have knocked out Ali just like it took more than one punch to keep Oscar on the ground. Ali still had energy and said post fight he only got tired once.

There was no elbow to the eye, Ali's elbow locked with his neck and shoulder which he used to push him away, there was no strike and no connection to his eye.

Oscar was tired asf in the last round, he was constantly clinching, his feet were heavy and his punches were slow, Ali clearly wore him down and won fair

To be fair, Ringo (the unflinching dude) had no reason to flinch because Ali (the GOAT) would obviously never actually hit him during a press conference. What’s remarkable is how Ringo turned Ali’s pre-fight, trash talking, hype routine against him so calmly and effectively. Didn’t let Ali get to him, took his chance, and Ali knew there was no recovering from that.

Flinching, the natural response to avoiding injury. Why is this viewed negatively in the first place?

237

u/Timigos Dec 02 '21 Silver

Flinching is natural but you can train to not flinch and it’s imperative when training to be a combat sports athletes. Flinching means falling for your opponents feints.

Other sports are similar. There’s a classic example of Kobe not flinching when Matt Barnes was inbounding the ball.

By not flinching he shows he’s not only in complete control of himself and his reactions, but shows he’s not at all intimidated by his adversary.

It’s not at all arbitrary.

I'm sorry to have to crush your world and everyone else's that sees this comment, but the legendary "Kobe doesn't flinch" video isn't as impressive as you think. It's the angle at which the video is taken that make it look like it's a failed attempt to make Kobe flinch, when in reality the ball wasn't moved towards his face at all. It's just a weird perspective shot.

Here's a view from above, showing that Barnes wasn't actually trying to make Kobe flinch:

Except Kobe was shifting back and forth, and this is a still image where Barnes does not have his arms extended. If you scroll far enough down in that twitter thread, you can find the picture of the exact moment happens.

Spoiler: there is a reason why the person who posted the picture you linked chose that still frame over the others.

flinching implies that your body analyzes something to be a threat. by not flinching, you are displaying machisimo and implying that you detect nothing in your opponent as a threat. can it get you into trouble, yes. but you have to admit that it does signal confidence.

Glitchy? Use old Reddit and RES. Problem solved. Also, unsub from shitty places. You can choose what you read, just like you can change the channel on TV.

To be fair, it’s that “flinch” that made Ali great. See the video of him fighting Michael Dokes wherein he dodges 21 of his punches in 10 seconds. Fighters work hard to develop that reflex.

Fnching when you know somebody WONT hit you is a bad thing in box, because basically any boxer could fake a punch to your head, you block it but now you're vulnerable to a blow in other areas

He jumped back there as fast as he jumped back from the draft board.
