could be his downfall in this match.
I know his conditioning is world class, but he keeps on saying "IM gonna make this an exciting fight" "I throw as many punches as I can".
It totally works with his overwhelming style to put the other guy at a pace that he simply can't handle and a pace Rich is used to.
Okami has shown to be very lazy on the standup and puts the onus on the other guy to come forward and then shoot or counter. Then grab the upper hand on top position and grind out a win.
I hope Franklin does what he needs to do to win the fight, and not what the TV highlights and sponsors want him to do. What I mean is, understand that by NOT PRESSING EVERY SECOND OF THE FIGHT is ok and he shouldn't be goaded into OVER-AGGRESSION.
