When Derrick Lewis takes to his social media and proposes some rule changes in his heavyweight fight with Francis Ngannou, I’m on board. In fact, the rules he came up with should apply for all heavyweight fights.
It’s the one minute rounds that I like so much. This ensures that both fighters go all out for one straight minute and we won’t see any wall-n-stall. The ten minute breaks seem a little much to me, however. In that time, a fighter can leave the cage, go to the back, drop a deuce, and then come back out with five minutes to spare.
Screw it, I say go for it.
