'Tory Tornado' strikes again
For those of you who do not visit Conservativehome, I've taken a clip of this latest foray by David Davies, MP for Monmouth into the boxing ring . Its worth a watch. Not at all bad from the Monmouth Mauler. David has a big reach advantage, and he uses the left lead well to keep out on trouble, and lands the jab often enough to comfortably outscore his opponent. And he turned him on the ropes quite smartly a couple of times. I used to don the gloves myself when I was teenager, and I was quite impressed. David's biggest weakness is that he doesn't carry much venom in his punches. I thought the other man's corner were poor. They should have coached him to go in under David's lead with body shots. At distance he was very much second best, and in the last round, David was finishing the stronger. All things considered, our man did OK.
