Boxers: Street Fight Tactics?
Just wondering if there are any boxers out there who would like to share their game plan if they decide it's time to hurt somebody on the street. Of course most people know that a jab-cross-hook combo will fold most non-fighters out there, and naturally you're not gonna be sticking & moving against an untrained guy, but if you've any variation from this I'd love to hear it.
A while back I had a stupid fight on the street where I tried 2 illegal boxing moves which worked to pretty good effect:
a) Headbutting. If the guy gets up in your face real close, bringing your head down onto his nose will send him back a little bit OR get him to fold over so you can get some room to smack him.
b) Holding the shirt / collar. This is illegal in the ring, but it's bloody great on the footpath. While you're holding the other dude's shirt, he can't move, and you can get greater leverage than normal. To boot, you don't have to worry about range as you're holding him. Blast right hands into his nose (it's more cushioned than the chin) and he'll be down pretty quick.
Also, I've found that If you've got soft hands and/or want to end the fight real quick, throw a lead left rip to the guy's liver. If you're good at these, the fight will be over straight away. They aren't that reliable except against pussies however, if you do land em they're brilliant.
I guess this is of course if you don't have a bat or a bottle to swing, but it's still interesting to see how people adapt their boxing from ring to street. Eg one dude I know has a pair of knuckle dusters with padding that protect his hand from being hurt; one of the worst worries with hitting a dude without a glove is fucking your hand up. Anyway, share your tactics!
