Shane Mosley has many excellent attributes which has enabled him to jump from Lightweight up to Light Middleweight in a short span of time, while still retaining his elite level hand speed and power.
Mosley has power in both hands but perhaps his most devastating punch is the overhand right, which he delivers with such speed and accuracy. His left hook to the head does a lot of damage also and he’s frequently put opponents down as a result.
In his days as a lightweight, Shane Mosley was a force to be reckoned with. Blessed with amazing speed and power, Mosley tore through the division becoming a world champion in the process, and touted as the next boxing superstar.
He then jumped up two weight divisions for bigger names and recognition. However, he ran into a bit of trouble by Vernon Forrest who convincingly beat him twice. Mosley bounced back and throughout his long career, he’s fought the best competition, caused major upsets and became a superstar. It would not have been if it wasn’t for his intense work ethic.
In recent years, Mosley has been trained by Nazim Richardson who has implemented some interesting training methods to Mosley’s routine.
• During Mosley’s heavy bag session, Nazim would often swing a towel to try and catch him off guard. This is done to keep Mosley alert.
• Sometimes uses foam sticks as a substitute for mitts because they’re more effective for improving hand speed.
• Mosley supplements his workouts with bowling, basketball and snowboarding. Nazim says
gives him that muscle confusion and keeps him agile.”
Shane Mosley has had a long career and all throughout, he’s fought top level competition but has never been stopped. It’s not only attributed to his iron chin but also his mental toughness and physical conditioning.

Andre Ward is one of the most talented boxers of the modern era, He possesses a set of invaluable tools in his arsenal which has allowed him to excel to the elite levels of boxing. Although he lacks big punching power, he has excellent defensive skills and can control the fight no matter what style is presented in front of him.
Natural talent and desire go hand in hand for Andre Ward. Since a young age, Ward has continued winning on a consistent basis from the amateurs to the professional ranks.
Having won a Olympic Gold Medal, Ward hasn’t enjoyed the same type of publicity as other fighters who have achieved the same feat. Instead, he’s had to fight his way to the top, and winning the Super Six tournament established him as the best Super Middleweight in the world.
One of the secrets to his success lies within his long-time trainer Virgil Hunter who has implemented the right training plan and philosophy for Ward.
• One of the methods Ward uses to strengthen his hands is he stabs his hands with the fingertips first, into a large tub of rice grains. This is a traditional method also used by martial artists.
• Virgil Hunter puts much emphasis on a necessity to train intensely. “The
whole idea is to train until you’re in an uncomfortable, painful situation…I use these situations in Andre’s training, so he knows he’s mentally prepared to handle anything he might encounter in the heat of combat.”
• Ward occasionally pushes a small pick-up truck or runs with a 45-pound log or plate overhead.
• The mental aspect of training is vital. Hunter says: "I
don't use reps, because I don't want you ever to think, 'I'm done.' We don't want that mentality…Quitting points give you the chance to quit right at the point that your pain threshold is about to change."

Jean Pascal combines speed and power to take his opponents out. His many flaws including stamina issues and lack of basic fundamentals means that he often relies on his best assets. Pascal’s wild swings and unpredictability is only more reason for
his opponents to be more careful, as these are the same flaws that cause problems for other fighters.
The Haitian born fighter Jean Pascal fights out of his adopted home of Canada where he’s a star because of his entertaining style and accomplishments.
Throughout his career, Pascal has fought the toughest competition and has only lost to the best. His most high profile fights was with the legendary Bernard Hopkins where he retained his world title in a draw in their first fight and lost the second on points.
Pascal always comes in top physical condition for his fights and he has superb athletic ability.
• Closes his eyes, pointing upwards with his hands together while spinning around for 30 seconds, then attempting to walk in a straight line. This helps him with balance and conditioning for when he gets dazed by a punch.
• Pascal has been a gym rat for his entire boxing career and often splits his training sessions into three periods of morning, afternoon and evening.
Jean Pascal’s idol is the legendary fighter Roy Jones Jr. who achieved phenomenal success in boxing, and like Pascal, he was also known to be extremely dedicated to their profession. In Pascal’s viewpoint, he says:
always put boxing before everything else in my life. Before family, before friends, before dating. It's a life choice I made and it is not hard at all. People are wrong when they say that I make sacrifices for my career. I don't make sacrifices…A life choice is conscious. I know that if I sleep well, if I eat well, if I live a clean life and if I'm training as best as I can, I will have more chances to win and to achieve my goals.
