i was just wondering if anyone here who actually boxes has ever used their boxing skills in the street and if so how did it turn out?

I'm sure most of the experienced boxers here are disciplined enough not to get involved in stupid **** like that.

We've had boxing tournaments at my friends house and I've always won them against guys who are A LOT bigger than me (50lb differences).

The only time I've fought with my fists is when me and my friend fought for the hell of it in a game called 10 seconds. He threw a wild punch and missed me so I hit him with a jab and a right cross right in the ribs and that was the end of it lol. My knuckles are unusually large though, like huge compared to other peoples knuckles they stick out a lot and are spaced.

"Sukhenkoy" is right. If your disciplined and man enough, you shouldn't be gettin' in fights. That can lead to worse things than losing. Gettin' hurt, like your hands. And if you happen to get into a fight; say self-defense, "Biggyguns91" too is right. Your boxing skills may help you see and react to punches better. Landing punches and throwing with speed and power may be visible. But in a street fight you don't got time to be tactical and box like you would be able to in the ring. It's a street fight anything goes.

fights usually start standing up so if your a boxer and get the first punch in you should win really, unless the other guy is tough. Most fights I been in thats how it usually went, and Im not a toughguy, I'll admit I didnt win them all.

O MY GODNESS, YES! Ive fought 3 times in the past year and let me tell ya I fought 1 guy that weighed 170 and was 5"10 tall, 1 guy 5"8 around 160-170 and another guy 5"9 and was around 140. each one of em knew how to fight either a little or alot and the last guy i fought was one of my old friends and used to be my sparring partner! wow I know me and this guy used to be training partners aswell and when I fought em about 3 months ago he had left the gym for 3 months and when he was in the gym with me he used to be really fast and he would basically outclass me with his speed and reflexs. When I fought him I already knew his style and that he hasnt been in the gym. His punches were 100000 times slower than before and less crisp. Thats what the drugs and partyin did to him. He landed about 7 punches the whole fight and I mean not clean punches and I landed so many punches on em that his brother(one of my best friends) wouldnt let him go to school for a week. I was told that his italian friends are suppose to be jumping me but its been almost been 3 months since ive fought him, but I know sooner or later those damn boaters are goona come after me.

also I used to wrestle in 7th and 8th grade and still wrestle and hit up the mma gym every now and then so when the fights got to the ground I knew what I was doing. Needless to say I never lost a fight since ive started boxing about a year ago

No, since i started training seriously I havent, its not worth it i gain nothing from pounding someone in 18 seconds. Then waste 45 minutes whipping off their blood off my hands, clothes and white chucks, when that time could be spent womanising.

Also i never fought much to begin with cause I wrestled through highschool so i was already perceived to be some sort of assasin by the people who got into fights.

streetfights are terrible and shold be avoided at all costs. unfortunately, thats not always true. i probly been in more street fights than actual AM fights. not bragging, jus sayin what went down (dudes are usually pretty crazy in philly) anyway, every single street fight i been in has not lasted more than 45 seconds or so. every single thing i do, movements, ducking, etc. is EXACTLY what i would do in a boxing ring. a street fight is like havin a boxing match with a bullrushing slugger. u side step, and counter. throwing wildly and not being tactical and not always on balance and in punching position is a bad bad bad thing, in any kind of fight. always use ur boxing skills no matter what!!

This is the ultimate, man. **** you, you hoe, come and say it to my face- I'll **** you in the ass infront of everybody. You *****, COME ON you *****! You're scared, coward, you not man enough to **** with me, you can't last two minutes in my world, *****. Look at you. Scared now, you hoe. Scared like a little white *****. Scared of the REAL man. I'll **** you 'til you love me, ******."

I wrestled for a long time when I was younger and got in a lot of fights...almost every on ended on the ground because I took it there....most of the time i didnt even think about it...they never expect you to grab their legs and slam them on the concrete.....

I also have had my ass beat very badly....I had 3 concussions once and spent 4 days in the hospital when I was 18...$6800 in medical bills

It doesnt matter how tough you are because there is always some one bigger and badder....eventually the law of averages comes into effect and you are bound to get f*&%ed up.....And no one fights fair anyways.....

So, I dont fight anyone any more.....I am too scared of hurting some one badly or myself getting injured and not being able to provide for my family...it just isnt worth it.....I walk the other way....

But if for some reason the guy wont stop....then there are no rules on the street....kill or be killed......

You don't just use boxing in a street fight. In a street fight you go all out to nail your opponent. Not right I'm going to establish the jab in the first, work the body in the second then go for the ko in the third.


It hasn't really helped me since I started if you throw a lot more than your opponent you generally win in street fights as they only last about half a minute.

its just stupid to fight if you're serious about boxing too many things can go wrong but in a fight mma **** would be better anyways

moin126
01-21-2008, 12:24 PM
**** that like everyone ****ing knows mma. Kick in the balls + 1-2, or a 2-3
But you should first look to his body type etc see if you could take him, then look at environment if its possible and see if he has friends or any other possbile dangers, so you shouldnt be ****ing drunk or stoned. But razer sharp and methodical, if you wanna win like a ****ing animal

The last fight I had was in the summer with some overweight ugly cunt who thinks he's the man of the town when he's pissed.

He bumped into me in a night club and told me the **** off, I left it and tried to cool down but could not take the fact he was probably thinking he made me look a fool, so I confronted him on the dance floor opened up a combo and fatty went down.

its too easy to get into fights, and they arent worth it. think about how many times youre at the bar and someone does something stupid. you could be fighting every day! i always try to defuse situations because i really have nothing to prove. 90% of the people who try to start things for no reason and punks with a low self esteem who have to prove something to themselves and their friends.

Only once, after I'd been boxing for just a few months. A guy I'd been having trouble with sucker-punched me, or tried to. I was able to see it coming just from the way he moved his feet when I walked past him. I weaved under it and he hit the wall -- it was a big overhand punch that would've hit my ear. He followed the punch into the wall (bad form :nonono: ) and broke his hand and his wrist, and he cried like Nancy Kerrigan.

BTW, he told the cops that I'd punched HIM, and that he'd broken his hand trying to defend himself. If there hadn't been a bloody dent in the plaster that I showed the cops, he might have been able to pull that off, especially if I had been boxing for years instead of months. Also, the cops knew that the guy was a troublemaker, but you get the idea. It could have gone badly from a legal sense even though I didn't touch him.

EDIT: To be fair, I'd just had his brother arrested. He was pretty pissed.

Seriously.....how many of you guys get into streetfights without creating part of the altercation???? When i was young i got in a lot of fights because I didnt know how to walk away....It takes two to fight...

I can just imagine it now.........youre walking down some dark little alley in Gary Indiana and a couple of pissed off drive-thru attendants from Mcd's shoot out of a bush and begin assaulting you for your last six bucks and the box of Malt-O-Meal you have to feed your family for dinner. They begin overcoming you with overhand rights and gangster windmill punches that would make Lloyd Banks and G-Unit proud...Now, your only hope of survival is to rely on the evasive defensive mauevers and Wing Chung roundhouse kicks Chuck Norris taught you back in 86 when you were sporting a Probert mullet and Benjamins still had small faces...

Come on now....

I have to agree with the people that say to avoid street fights unless its enevitable. But im sure knowing boxing in a street fight would help you a lot. If you throw a straight right before he throws a sloppy right swing that takes 3 seconds before it would hit you im sure he'd be stunned.

No I would have to disagree, street fighting is for men:boxing:

Too easy, I just run up to someone real quick and threw a 5 punch flurry. I only landed three of the punches but that was enough to drop him for good and sprain my left wrist.

Straight right baby. Last 2 fights. 2-0. 2 ko's with one crisp right hand. These were all before I started boxing. Iv'e always known better to use straight punches and not swing like a dumb ass. But I'm too scared to **** up my hands now so that is enough to stop me from fighting, not worth it. Think how long you are not gonna be able to hit the heavy bag.

Not worth it, you go to jail lol.

I had one where it helped. Thank god because at 5'8" 155 im a little guy.

I was coming out of Greys Papaya on 37th and 8th in NYC. Had just gotten off the train at about 11pm from south jersey and grabbed some hotdogs and a papaya drink, the recession special. (If you are in new york you need to have the papaya drink, its a beautiful thing)

Anyways there was a guy harassing people at the open counter from the sidewalk. He was obviously nuts, and who knows what his deal was. I just ignored him ate my grub and walked out.

As I cam around the bend of the exit he was there in my face, chest bumped me and started yelling in my face. I panicked and was scared of getting my ass beat so I pushed him back and stuck him with a jab....


He looked at me all crazy like screaming stuff and came at me. I threw a simple 1 + 2, and he fell like a sack of potatoes, like someone cut his legs off, straight down, not back and he was laying there making gurgling noises.

The other guys on the corner started yelling and i took off running. I sprinted all the way to the river where i threw up a few times then headed home.

It sucked, but i successfully defended myself. Throwing a 1 + 2 properly and accurately helped, but i think most of all from sparring i wasnt started and was a lot more composed than i think i would have been if i hadnt been sparring. the confidence, the know how, and repeatedly getting punched in the face probly saved me from ending up on youtube getting beat down on 8th ave.

I think its best to try and wrestle someone in a street fight and get em in a choke to tap out then throw punches.

Ive busted my wrists too many times punching unwrapped.

yea try not going to the ground, as you cant really see whos coming or stop them from kicking or hitting you with something. try to get it over as quick as you can and leave the scene.

01-31-2008, 09:04 PM
i've had some with bouncers, boxing helps you to be meaner and land more accurately on the face but no time to wait and counter etc etc ,... **** if the other guy appears to be better then me , ill try to toss him on his head just blast the face .the last time i lost i was 13-14 i think. didn't have a real fight in a year i think.

yeah i got in this fight at the corner store one time cuz this gangster wannabe white boy was atlkin ****. I tried to walk away but he kept talking ****. so I got in my boxing position with my hands at my waist to act like I didnt want to fight. he picked his hands up so i feinted a jab and came with a blazing straight right hand just a fraction of a second behind it. after the right hand he kept trying to fall in to me and grab me, but i kept putting angles on him and hit him with 3 uppercuts. after the fight he told me he was trying to test my heart and that i got the best of him. He told me " since you got heart homie, lets go blaze a blunt" and then tried to give me hug. I pushed him off of me then he got back on his bike and went home.
