im not really sure how to ask this but like whats the first thing you should be trying to do when you are in the ring?

do you just attack the oppenent? jab em to find out what he does? when hes got his guard up do you still jab it?

i dont know if you guys understand what im getting at.

Use the first round to develop a sense of the timing and rhythm that your opponent has. This isn't to say that you shouldn't go on the attack, but I would be patient and let the fight develop naturally rather than trying to force something.

Lots of jabs, lots of leg kicks (if you're doing that). Move and bait your opponent to throw to you. Stay just out of range and work your counter punching. At least early.

Then press the action more as the fight progresses. Try and establish YOUR game on your opponent. Make him fight YOUR way.

Go until the bell sounds, a knock out occurs or the ref stops the fight.

ah ok, try to control him, always coupel steps ahead.

i guess it all comes with experience.


what about when hes against the ropes with his guard up. should i be trying to slug at his guard to find openings? should i let him stand up again so i can find openings?

Are you talking about sparring or an actual bout?

If you don't know this much at this point, you shouldn't perhaps even be SPARRING, much less in the ring.

I'm assuming you were just asking because you were curious. Are you training anywhere? Have a coach? What's your plans?

yeah i am training at a boxing gym, ive got a couple coaches. im planning to get that golden glove :P.

i was just curious like what doyou guys do in these situations? I acutally owe a lot to just reading about techniques and stuff.

i thought it might be cool to see different point of views. to mix it up a bit.

Good deal then.

You'll be coached as to how to handle different situations (such as opponent, or yourself against the ropes). You'll be PUT into those various situations and will spar to learn.

For example, when your opponent is against the ropes, you'll want to obviously keep him there. Thus your coach would have you doing a lot of "head to head" sparring. That sort of training is good for a lot of situations. You can be head to head in the middle of the ring and not just the ropes. That just teaches you infighting.

You'll also learn to cut off the ring and back your man into the ropes, etc. Again, all of these situations should be set up by your coach during training.

I divide my bouts into sessions.

First round is coined 'the calm before the storm'. Basically, I'll be playing around, a little on the defensive to study your rhytm, timing and habits. But at the same time set my rhytm on you, and make the game go my pace.

Second round is called the 'shocker'. Be prepared to eat a strong punch all of a sudden. If it hits and sends you to the ground, even if it doesn't knock you out, you'll be doubting yourself, and you'll think I have powerful punches but in fact, it's just psychological bs that's messing with your mind.

Third round is the 'Blitz'. At this point, I'll know your strategy, your timing and rhytm. Not only that, I'll have a few of your habits, and I'll all out on you with confidence while you're still afraid of my 'sucker punch' from round 2. Trust me, you'll be so afraid of that punch you're going to keep looking for it, but I won't throw it. I'll just go up and bombard you with my favorite punches until the end of the round.

Round four 'Shocker?'. I'll either continue with the strategy like round three, or I'll deliver another sucker punch. Depends on what's fitting, if you're not afraid of the punch, I'll just play safe.

Round 5, assuming you're still standing, I'll just play defensive. Also called "Wussy round" because I'll just run away from you and avoid all trades.

That's my kickboxing tactics.
