Darren Till vs Stephen Thompson: 5 Talking points
#4 Counterpunching Strategy
Wonderboy is a quicker and precise counterpuncher who throws combinations and goes back and set up a big shot.
Till's counter punching is very similar to that of Conor McGregor, where he goes one step backward and counters with a big left hand.
Till will have to be the one to close the distance with his long jab and be explosive like Tyron Woodley and knock wonderboy down.
He also has this ability to dodge kicks and come back with a counter, this can be put to effective use against Wonderboy.
On the other hand, Wonderboy has a tendency to throw the counter and follow it up with a stealthy leg kick as he exits the exchange, which can catch Till.
In conclusion, the counterpunching strategy will be critical for Till in beating Wonderboy's Karate.
