    Did you have a dipshit feeder who insisted on holding the pads at an acute angle, tipped so far forward that you had to try angling your uppercuts back up toward your own face?

    I mashed up my wrist that way once.

    I found fedor's book to be helpful because he modified traditional boxing for the smaller MMA gloves. He advocates hitting with the top index and middle knuckles, turning the thumb to the ground for hooks, over-rotating on the jabs and crosses, etc.

    Larry Holmes advocates leaping onto a car and drop-kicking your opponent right in the damn face.

    Writing as a former boxer, when on the street I used punches as a way of setting up elbows. If I landed a power punch, I would move on to palm-strikes in case the punch had fractured my hand. I preferred to keep my distance and rely on speed. If I was doing Karate with bare-fist conditioning, I would probably just use the punches.

    Yeah I guess the old boxing moves Hatmaker shows must have undergone a bit of ring-testing in pre-Queensbury days.

    worked with a few guys who were quite handy boxers and kickboxers and I never really saw them do anything much more than straight right and left combinations but usually in fives and tens not twos and threes. Me personally tend to just jab I cant break the habit of it.
    I would avoid throwing overhands in case you hit the guy in the top of the head and throw hooks with your thumb verticle rather than towards you so you are less likley to hit with your little knuckle. I have seen a couple of guys use a cross between an uppercut and hook as a sucker punch thrown from the waist that works quite well.

    the biggest advantage of holding and hitting is your attacker is less likley to fall on the concrete and die just depends how important that is to you
