Avni Yildirim- Mr. Robot’ and all his techniques

Being a professional boxer, Yildirim clearly follows some orthodox practices. If we look closely, we can locate such drills in several fighter’s training camps. So, Yildirim is no different, unless he gets to showcase his skills in a professional battle.

Pad work

The Turkish sensation has quick hands and his pad work regime displays that. While pad work practice also hones one’s reflexes, it’s prominent in Yildirim’s game. He trains under veteran Joel Diaz and currently seems to work on his speed and footwork.

If things work out well for him, Yildirim can be a dominant force at 168 lbs. He is already an A-lister but with more activeness, he can turn even more treacherous.

Heavy bag work

Apart from speed, Yildirim is also focussed on his power. The orthodox puncher has attained 12 KOs in 21 wins and has a knockout ratio of 52%. So, it’s wrong to demean his abilities inside the ring. As he waits for the bigger fights, Avni Yildirim looks even sharper. He is honing the skills on a heavy punching bag. Here’s a glimpse of his power from the recent training sessions.

Ahead of his fight against Canelo Alvarez for the WBC and WBA 168 lbs title fight, Yildirim has his coaches’ belief over him. Joel Diaz claims to witness an upset in the upcoming fight and cites the ongoing training camps to be beneficial. That said, fitness is seemingly an inevitable part of Yildirim’s camp.

Even though he hasn’t opened up on his accurate workout schedule, the recent training videos speaks a lot about Avni Yildirim’s plan on conquering the division.
