Ford VS Popp

John FordVSLenny Popp

Popp and Ford went into the fight with each already having one fight under their belt. But Popp knew his limitations as he claimed, "I'm not fighting this sucker more that one minute." Popp knew Ford's background and Popp knew that his background of swimming for the Jeff High Swim Team wasn't going to cut the butter in the backyard boxing ring. He was start the fight off pretty well as he advanced toward Ford with some fakes and left him open for attack. Unfortunately, much like Popp's fighting style, most of it was fakes. Ford a student of martial arts knew the key to fighting was a good defense , but he also knew that after few of Popp's punches most of them were fakes. So Ford went in with guns a blazing and knocked Popp across the ring. After regaining his composure, Popp went after Ford again but this time he made the same mistake when he fought Knight: He stayed down to low. For a short fighter this works, but for someone who is 6' tall it gets him punched in the head. So Popp went the distance and took the blows until the round was over. He didn't really get any good shots on Ford, but he knew his limitations which is good for a close 5th or 6th place...
