Junior Dos Santos’ Boxing Coach Says One Or Two Punches Will Bring The Gold Home

Junior dos Santos was able to capture the UFC heavyweight title in 64 seconds in his first chance at the gold. The boxing coach of ??Cigano,? Luiz Carlos Dorea, thinks the rubber match could be another quick encounter.

“I have no doubt that we will get closer to the knockout as soon as ??Cigano?? lands one or two punches,” said Dorea to MMA Fighting. “Cain??s ability to take a punch is his weakness and that??s what we will explore in this fight.”

The first fight was in 2011 with Santos taking the strap after a big right hand to the head of Cain Velasquez. In the rematch, Velasquez dominated to close 2012 as champion.

Since their two meetings, each has taken separate wins.
