Manel Kape: ‘I’m a better boxer than Petr Yan’!
A fan had the temerity to suggest that Petr Yan was the best boxer in the UFC earlier today and Manel Kape put him firmly in his place. The flyweight is adamant he has much better hands than the interim bantamweight champion.
Kape outlined exactly why he feels his boxing is so much better than Yan’s:
Definitely not, Yan is a good boxer with 7 KO’s,
I’m a flyweight with 12 KO’s .
my skills is on another level when the conversation is about boxing.
It's sport that runs through my veins, it's in the blood of the family. https://t.co/3BnGTZNUy1

The possibility of the two men fighting is remote, given that they are competing in different divisions. But both have trained extensively in Phuket, Kape was at AKA Thailand while Yan was at Tiger Muay Thai.
Kape has stopped his last two opponents in the opening round. So when it comes to his striking the Angolan is clearly putting his money where his mouth is.
Who do you think would win a boxing fight between him and Yan?
