I see.

Well I'd never trust too much into an encyclopdia, but Wiki is good. But I'm better sometimes, especially when it's about boxing.

great thread! question: whats the consensus on CG (center of gravity) during a shovel hook after a setup combo? lets say, for instance, left jab + right cross + left shovel hook combo.

some say weight on rear leg, some say front, some say always center. To me, seems dependant on range to target - up close will naturally shift a bit back, optimum/boxing range seems center is the most comfortable, and if stepping in on the setup, then weight a bit on front leg feels right.

does that seem right? or should we always keep center?

(disclaimer: I only had a couple years of bx in the Army...but I try to follow the conversations anyway )

thank-ya ladies

Yes, it's like what you said.

If he's further away, I go with middle, but I rarely put weight into the rear leg. Seems to me I've got no idea how to transfer power into the hook while my weight is on the rear leg when using the shovel hook.

Following your example, the weight for me would be
jab(front) - cross (rear) - shovel hook (front) - cross (rear)

Uncle Ed, don't worry, join in. It doesn't matter if you don't know, any information or knowledge is appreciated in the boxing forum.

i love shovel hooks- I have no time for ranged fighting


Me too, but mostly because of my short height, arms & legs. I canít fight at range so have to get up close & personal, like a slippery bugger ó whether I like it or not.

This video from Rodney King (of Crazy Monkey Boxing) provides a good demonstration of the Shovel Hook itself:
