Josh Barnett Talks Yvel And Fedor-Arlovski

Josh Barnett isn’t buying into any of the boxing hype coming out of Arlovski’s camp (Is anybody?). Here’s what he told Steve Cofield:

“As far as his striking not being impressive, I guess Freddie Roach is going to eat crow. It’s not like what Freddie Roach is used to and what he would normally step into a boxing ring and see across the way. Fedor’s striking for MMA is very precise and it’s been very successful for him.”

“The minute you push him, he doesn’t go back, he comes forward and he just immediately punches and tries to take you down. If he encounters trouble on the feet, he doesn’t try to stay and work his way out of that, he changes gears.”

Barnett faces Gilbert Yvel in a heavyweight bout on Sat., Jan. 24, in Anaheim at Affliction “Day of Reckoning.”
