In boxing, the fight is not always won by the most talented or better fighter. Thursday night SHOBOX David Estrada-Nurhan Suleyman fight was an example of that. Suleyman was the better technician and the favorite. With an extensive amateur background, the undefeated Suleyman had the advantage when it came to boxing. Estrada had one chance and that was to out hustle Suleyman. And that is what he did. Estrada threw punches in bunches, and when he was not punching, he avoided Suleyman punches with an improved defense from previous fights.
What won Estrada the decision was his constant movement forward and sideway. Since Suleyman did not have great knock out power, Estrada was able to wade in without fear. Suleyman seemed a step slower than the younger Estrada and Estrada offensive flurries forced Suleyman on the defense. Suleyman was reduced to throwing one punch at a time. What lesson to be learned? Simple, when one fighter has the desire and will to impose his or her will, he will win. Estrada did not win by being the better technician but by out hustling Suleyman.
