To do this we must create an angle. When two boxers are facing each other, they are both in the line of fire from each other’s punches. If one boxer moves “off line” & around the other, whilst his opponent is still momentarily facing the same way he was, this advantageous position where one boxer can deliver punches and the other momentarily cannot can be exploited to devastating effect.
This can be done while simultaneously
defending an opponent’s attack or mid-way through an offensive combination as
the opponent shells up through the use of Pivots, rolls, steps & shifts. Try implementing angles into your shadow boxing, bagwork and sparring to utilise this position. If you have a coach/trainer, they should also be working angles with you during padwork.
