Default Boxing useless in a Bar Brawl?

Hello my fellow boxers!

I read a post in another forum that claimed that boxing would be useless is a bar brawl. I just wanted to know what you all thought of this concept.

I dont mind tihs post. But Im guessing a few people will. NO boxing is NOT useless in a bar brawl. If there are lots of people around you in a bar. Then punching distance is what youll have, you wont have room to kick, and little room to grapple.

So a boxer who gets himself in great shape and spends all his time training to throw fast hard punches and gets plenty of experience sparring would be useless against some fat drunk in a pub? Wow. whoever said that must be truly ignorant.

if there are no weapons to hand, boxing is the only method of fighting to use if you want to survive.

If you can`t box then you can`t fight.

Jumping around like bruce lee or trying to get someone in a rear naked choke or triangle choke will just get you killed.

My brother said a similar thing to me some time ago...something along the lines of 'you aint gonna use those combinations in a real fight'

I have and i would....mind you, he ******* out of every confrontation i`ve ever seen and can`t fight for ****. He's good at talking smack though.

i dont see how kicking someone, which requires a lot of range, timing and luck would be any use in a bar fight at all. To end it quickly you`d have to kick them in the head..anyone with any knowledge of how to fight would get out of the way of a head kick.

How many ko's from kicks have you seen in mma? Ive seen 1 or 2 in about 5 years of watching it.

The thing is, if it's a bar room brawl very rarely is it one on one.

Knowing boxing in a bar brawl is well...minimal benefit at best.

People don't square up and circle each other in bar brawls...You're not gonna be sticking and moving and jabbing. When **** goes down in the bar or club, people are out manhandle each other. Add that with the fact that theres so many distractions including people, objects, music, dark light etc. Its an entirely different element.

I can tell u from experience...Ive boxed thousands of rounds in the ring. And the last time I got in to a bar brawl, I used next to nothing that I've learned. I was just throwing wicked blows and fighting with killer instinct and little else. Granted I was fighting 5 guys by myself, and I still stood there and tried to trade with all of them...Wasn't the smartest idea granted the way my face looked the next day. Had I thought of boxing though, I would have covered up tight and shot right hands from a defensive guard at least. I guess Winky would probably survive a jumping with just a few scratches.

kicks are pretty useless in street/bar fights.
