Default Question about clinching in boxing.

Alright, I have a question for anyone here that trains/fights.

In MMA, you clinch people up to set up an attack. But, a lot of people pull their opponent in to take a breather.

In boxing, does pulling your opponent into a clich tire your arms faster? In boxing, you're using your arms a lot. Just wanted to know because I was watching some fights earlier, and when I saw the fighters clinch up they looked dead.

It depends. When your both tired, no one's really retaliating, but when your gettin beat, and hes full of energy, hes tryin to fight outta it. so it just depends.

I see. I know in MMA when you're tired to clinch up to avoid strikes and takedowns. Thanks.

Thats why boxers do it to, to give less inertia on your oppnents hits, its all about understanding the Science.

How does clinching reduce inertia? I think you may mean momentum, as in the momentum a punch gets as it accelerates a longer distance through the air. Inertia has to be the most misused word of physics. Haha, sorry, just doin' some work, so I'm all in science mode. Personally, I don't like to clinch, and love fighting guys who try to who suck at it, but I hate fighting guys who can clinch well. I also think that purposly clinching is borderline illegal in the amateurs, can anyone confirm that?

Thanks for the help, fellas. I'm more of a boxing fan than a boxer.
