Cain Velasquez “hits like a girl,” according to former heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos.
The two are 1-1 against each other and are due to fight for a third time in October in order to settle the series.
"I had no cuts against Cain Velasquez. And he hits like a girl. He hit me a lot during the five rounds, but did not open any cuts, although I was very bloated and had to go to the hospital," he told Brazilian radio show Panico.
Its not the first time Velasquez has had his power criticized, but as the reigning heavyweight champion Dos Santos’ words are likely to bounce off him. Velasquez dominated Dos Santos so completely in their last fight that few are giving Dos Santos in this trilogy match.
