Tyson discloses his “simple” method

Speaking about knocking people out, Tyson, who’s had some of the most violent knockouts in boxing, laid emphasis on applying pressure on his opponents. In addition, he mentioned that he would try and influence his opponents to make mistakes. “My philosophy for fighting people and knocking them out was just put as much pressure on them as I could. It was just pressure, pressure, pressure,” Tyson said. “Make them make mistakes and then counter with a knockout. Simple as that,” he concluded. Given Tyson’s statements, it seems Ngannou would also try to apply pressure on ‘The Gypsy King’ to get a KO win.
