Now that we’ve look at 4 basic boxing punches we’ll take a quick look at combos. Any of these 4 boxing punches can be used quickly one after the other to form a combo. A very common combo is the jab and cross combo, nicknamed the “one-two combo”.

Unconventional Punches

– Refered to as a roundhouse, haymaker or sucker-punch. This large, swinging circular punch is delivered from a cocked-back position, with your arm at a very long extension. Body weight and centripetal force can make this often wild and uncontrolled punch powerful, but vulnerable as the boxer is often left off-balance & having an open guard. Trainers regard this punch as a mark of poor technique or desperation. You might finish off your already reeling opponent with this punch, but be careful!

– The Bolo Punch… swing your arm ’round and ’round in a big arc to distract your opponent, then punch him with either hand.
