    Footwork.

    Head movement.

    Move and strike at angles.

    Button up.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    It's a brilliant strategy that I suggest you try.
    I also suggest adding a weakly committed snap side kick at his elbows to really cement his dominance.

    Yes he did. And Foreman was only KO'd once in his entire career...and that KO came courtesy of "The Greatest".
    I still wouldn't recommend it though. I am often guilty of wading in and taking two punches to land one myself, it is a bad habit I developed when I boxed and I am still trying to change it to this day.. Even if you are a cement head like me. Eventually you get nailed.
    Angles are the key.
