For all you boxers amateur/pro or just in training, What is your signature punch that you like to use?

My trainer taught me one of the best moves and punches in my arsenal right now and I am being effective with it and plan on using it on my fight on the 12th.

I will bob my head and dodge down and throw a rapid hook to the body and shuffle to the side at an angle and when my hook hits your body, I will be on the side with a straight to the face.


Been using it in sparring and it has worked effective for me.


Whats yours?

james toney shoulder roll with the counter right


I love how he can do that, I tried it but ended up getting a busted lip and taking a seat. Perhaps if I practiced more and wasnt in with a guy who outweighed me by 40 pounds, maybe but none the less I was uneffective with it.

lol, yeah 40lbs is to much unless your lights out himself. gotta keep the shoulder up, protect the chin. floyd really seems to be the best guy right now at protecting his chin with his shoulders when he's on D.

the guy i hit the pads with says my left hook to the body is my best punch, i do enjoy throwing it off the right cross.

When crouched on the inside, I like to pivot to my right and fire double left hooks while the guy is off balance. Another unorthodox move I use is crouching very low in the corner while under fire, and timing a left hook counter shot. Very unorthodox, it works with my shortness.

My favorite punch:
I duck and weave to the left and throw a tight right uppercut to the chin, my right uppercut is by far my most powerful punch so it's paying off really well in sparring

Well, I'm no boxer, but I still want to answer this one...the punch I love to see used the most is the uppercut. When executed properly it can be devestating and Barrett using it against Beck this past Sat. is a good example of that. Barrett was landing pretty well against Beck, but when he connected with that uppercut it seemed to do more damage to Beck. Just my opinion though :o

true... the uppercut.. is more of a follow through... got the guy hurt with the right... if he does go down then... the uppercut will come...

i like that song from tupac... called... uppercut... could use it as an entrance song...

James Toney is probably the uppercut specialist. The shots he landed against Booker was insane to bad he had a good chin or Toney didnt hit him hard enough. But my god did Toney execute those blows nicely.

I like to faint the right jab and then through a left uppercut. It works nicely as a southpaw as they are always looking for that left hook or follow but left. ;)

My favorite single punch is when i get on the inside i lean down to the right and come up with a right uppercut/hook. Its kind of a mix between a uppercut and a hook. Im a switch hitter, i can fight from right and left handed stances.
But combinations wise, i like the left uppercut followed by a straight right and a left hook. ;)
By the way, im new to these forums, Im Teddy. Im from New Orleans. Im 16 and am just getting to a point in my life where i can get into a gym and start training, and im looking to be fighting about 9 months from now.

crap sorry i didnt see this until now.

Basicly you weave your body in a 8 formation and at the same time as you're approching the opponent (uppward angle) you throw a hook and repeat but from the other side. If you can get it to work you can delive so incredbly powerful and fast punches at a high pace.

Being short I need something that gives power and does alot of damage quickly.

It's a ***** to get perfect but it's worth it.

Well guy, I am 5"6, but spar with guys who are usually 3-4 inches taller than me.

I have this punch I call The Uppercut From Hell, which is simply my reaching down very deep with one uppercut to the chin. It goes down so far, My right glove frequently touches the top of Satan's head, hence the name.

Toney has a cheeky uppercut, he sneaks it which must really annoy his opponent. :D

A right hook when your opponent throws a jab. Especially if they are smaller. Just take the jab in the face, it can't hurt you, if you get'm with a good hook they won't be able to say the same thing.

well, my signature punch that I rarely use is only useable with a bit of distance between me and an opponent,

I come down and thrust up with a skip, move my head to the left a bit and wind up my waist and throw the left hook at full speed, not too wide, when the punch hits the target my feet are like 1 inch off the ground. full weight xfer punch

but by far my favorite punch is the jab
