you seem to be struggling with the fact that sometimes basic advice can be very helpful to a tired and slightly beaten up fighter. it doesn't have to be ground-breaking to be helpful.
your best bet might be to come back with something even more flippant and an insult. then we can draw a line under this lol
Anyone can yell out random advice. That doesn't mean its it's good advice or helpful. Yelling out things does nothing. It's all on the fighter to do what he wants and make things happen. It's not like hes taking a math test and a teacher is telling him the actual answers.
I'm seriously amazed that people really think this is some kind of unfair advantage. I guess the ref shouldn't be telling fighters to work or advance their position because hea influencing the fight?
no. absolutely correct. when you're fighting, somebody yelling advice isnt the deciding factor
lol I am not suggesting simple advice is THE deciding factor.
following a simple piece of obvious advice, and changing your actions as a result, can absolutely alter the course of the fight. that big shot that didnt get through etc. but that is not to say it will happen in every fight, or after every piece of good advice.
I once spoke to a top trainer in the UK from a famous gym. he told me the simplest advice is often best. when he is in a hard spa, he appreciates the reminder to keep his hands up and his chin down. in the blur of the fight it is easy to be distracted from these basics.
he also pointed out some of the best and most simple cornering he had ever seen. Matt Serra shouting 'breathe' to his fighter.
maybe Wayne or bunny or Joe would like to scoff at how obvious it is that you need to breathe, thus making it worthless advice in their books.. but I also know for a fact it's possible to tense up and not breathe freely in a fight, especially if you're inexperienced.
simple advice can be beneficial and also provides for the mathematic possibility that it could change the course of the fight.
