The venerable Dr. Hatfield here describes his training regimen for Evander Holyfield. The great advantage that Dr. Hatfield brought to Evander's game is the realization that boxing is anaerobic not aerobic sport. The periodizaton scheme was of minor import. http://www.sportsci.org/news/news9709/hatfield.html Sadly, what Dr. Hatfield artculates in the first three paragraphs of this article is critical yet not understood by nearly all in the mixed martial arts community.
