Default Where to watch

Hi

I am new here, and rather new to boxing. Want to say hello to everybody. Started boxing for pleasure one year ago and earlyer practiced in Judo for 5 years. During Judo fight I watched the body of my oponent, his legs, his arms, his stance, how he moves, how he holds the balance of his body, but hardly ever I watched his head. And I noticed that I do the same during the boxing sparring, which is probably wrong habit. I saw in some book or video of Bas Ruten (MMA fighter) that he suggest to keep eye contact, and also I noticed during sparring that one skilled boxer also "stare" straight at my eyes. So where have I to concentrate my attention?

Welcome!

When I box, I like to concentrate right at the chin. From there you can watch all angles. Chin is also the sweet spot: you have to see the spot, to hit the spot. I usually suggest to not look "directly" in their eyes. .... a lot of people make weird faces and it tends to throw you off

i dont see so much of a prob here. its good that ur using judo habits. just go along with what ur used to and apply it to boxing even the bit where u said about watchin the legs.

most people will think 'wtf am i on about now u barely use legs in boxing' but if u can read his footwork and know what stance he'll prefer to punch on and what stance he wont be so hastey to do so - u can figure out how to catch him off guard... when i box i read all body language but particularly arms, shoulders n head but i still watch what his feet are doin so i kno when to catch him.

just use what u have and somehow apply it to boxin like ive just shown ya.

i think the upper chest area. I dont like watching the eyes for reasons you will find out in sparring and the truth is a guy cant do much to you without moving his upper torso in one direction or the other...
