    Boxing Styles

    All you boxers out there, I've got a style question. I've hear some of the guys at my gym talking about "Infighting" and "outboxing". I did some basic research and have an idea of what they mean (although I could always use some more info).

    So what style of boxer are you? Why? Did you just develop that way naturally because it best suited your abilities/build/whatever? Or was it taught to you? Is this a totally stupid thread?

    I prefer to move forward behind the jab with constant pressure which turns into brawling as soon as dude stops backing away. I do that becasue I'm kinda slow and not so great with my hands, but I like (and more importantly do ok) trading shots.

    Way it worked for me was after the basics, you start developing how you feel comfortible in the ring. You have to decide what's best given your movement, your footwork, if you go after the other guy or lure him in, throw feints and fakes or just pound the 1-2, etc.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    I would consider myself an outboxer because of my strange reach advantage, but I will adapt styles, depending on my opponent.

    generally speaking, a counterpuncher/infighter. According to my coaches, I have a slower style of counterpunching, and, because of my shortness, I tend to work better on the inside.

    I stay on the outside and depend heavily on my jab. I'm not nearly as strong as the most of the people I'm in the ring with so distance is my friend. It's a lot easier to do this because I'm tall. Jabs and counter-punches all day long. That's usually how tall guys fight.

    I fear, though, that I will be a boring fighter so I've been trying to work on being more aggrressive and coming forward more.

    I'm an outside fighter because:
    I'm tall
    I have a fast jab
    I have good foot work
    I'm a southpaw
    I get the crap knocked out of me when I go inside on smaller stronger guys.

    Hmmm...does 'out of shape' count as a style?

    Infighter. Cuz my footwork is weak, and I have great short power.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".
