Whenever I watch Boxing, a majority of the time one of the Boxers sticks their lead hand out towards their opponent and keeps it there until their opponent moves. What exactly are they doing? If I had to make a guess, I'd say it's helping them gauge the distance.

Several things possible:

* Keeping the opponent away

* Obstructing the opponent's vision to help hide a strike

* Setting up a fake or counter, by leaving himself "open"
