Benefits Of Starting Boxing At Any Age

But my coach informed me to lead with my lead leg – he informed me that every one I have to do is pivot. Then he showed me what he means by pivot…he’s a southpaw and what he did is bascially stepping along with his lead leg left and right on a regular basis and turning round while doing it… seemed a little bizarre although. Your remark earlier about beeing a one-armed-fighter convinced me. I wanted to have as many weapons as potential and a lethal overhand.

I would by no means dare say that Williams does something bad… he just wants to verify he changes up his gameplan a bit more for different opponents. Prince Naseem, Judah, Whitaker… Those boxers are exceptions for my part.


First time the younger undefeated Wladimir Klitschko got knocked out and misplaced a fight… was as a result of a southpaw Corrie Sanders. First time the invincible Roy Jones lost a struggle was due to a surprising knockout by southpaw Antonio Tarver. Look at Floyd Mayweather’s first 5 rounds in opposition to Zab Judah. Eventually, even he needed to change his defense fashion.
