Class act: Montano (ITA) v Occhiuzzi (ITA)

Nothing too fancy today, just a nice clean finish to the world’s most chillaxed semifinal between Aldo Montano and Diego Occhiuzzi at the Brooklyn grand prix. Bizarrely, I’m not saying that with a hint of sarcasm. Check out the full match below, it’s neat.

The last point has some genuine flair, with someĀ  magnificent poise and control of balance from Montano. It’s a bit of a cliche to say that his foorwork is superb, but it’s nice to see such a clear and elegant reminder.

Big prep is big, but the distance is so good he pulls it off without a hitch.

Anyway if you like slick blade actions, check out this bout. Lovely flow, ridiculous counterparries, the two best of which featured in Montano’s recent compilation video.
