Kinda like how you'd block a right hook as you stepped in to counter with a right straight of your own in a regular boxing match.
I thought at first his glove had "popped" or something because of the sound it made. They were those old red Everlast gloves with the little black band holding the thumb to the glove so you couldn't "touch up cuts" on a guy. Three round amatuer bout, I think they called it a no contest or whatever, but it didnt' really matter considering the result.
Punching someone's elbow is the be all, end all of how to hurt your hand.
Been there when I was sparring my brother. Yeah..nasty thing. I like rolling my elbows into side kicks..thats the best.
Back to the topic gentlemen.

Practice what you preach. If you are in the top ten in the country then I will listen to you.
How about the top ten in the country don't count, why aren't you training with a World or Olympic champ?
Come back when you train in a martial art.
