Fold your knees like that as you let yourself just drop and your opponent will just bump you and knock you over, or worse. You've got to focus on lateral stability. Your speed is NOT in how fast gravity takes you down. Boxing has a lot of push/pull, a swaying in which one movement delivers energy into another. Notice, Tyson is fluid and a lot of that power is generated from the rhythm, the shifting of weight, the shoulder sway, etc. His shoulders swing and his waist bends more than his knees. When you "squat" you have no power, stability, or control. Watch the opening minute of Tyson/Bruno2. Mike gets under a lot of Frank's punches but he's bending at the waist. His knees are strong and there's minimal "squatting". Learn to use your hips.
To be fair I skim read his post and picked out certain things I agree with like fundamentally a lot of ducking is skill. How do u improve lateral stability?
