I've heard of Orthodox,Unorthodox and Southpaw but never Hitman style. My cousin talks about it alot in his anime crazed so I thought it was real until he told me about A boxer named Thomas Hearns did it and some character ithe anime did it also ansd theres proof. He made me watched it but I still thought it was fake no ne could throw jabs like that. Thats was until I heard from some guys in the gym about Tommy Hearns I saw the guys mimicking some kinda position where the left their entire left open and started swing the left arm like a scythe and doing some kinda weird jab
I just wanna know who's Thomas Hearns I've heard of Ali Tyson Foreman and Sugar Ray but never Hearns and whats this hitman style

The jabs you saw being thrown in the anime are called "flicker jabs". Basically it's a jab but instead of coming from the shoulder, it's thrown out from any angle. Thomas Hearns was notorious for it if I remember correctly.

Just keep in mind that the anime exaggerates a lot of thing though.

For more about Thomas Hearns - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Hearns

And you can always check out YouTube for videos. There's a lot of them on there with Thomas Hearns.

I know it exaggerates alot at first when I saw it I said No way anybody can throw punches like whips.
So thats Thomas Hearns eh he sounds like a freak of nature destructive punching power, exceptional height and unusually long arms. I noticed something from the video though throws jab at an angle inhat lowerd position won't that put a little hurting on the joints or arm?

Who is Thomas Hearns? WHO IS THOMAS HEARNS?!?! Good grief, what is the youth of today coming to?

Thomas Hearns was involved, along with Roberto Duran, sugar Ray Leonard, and Marvin Hagler, in arguably the greatest era in boxing history. They certainly further defined the concept of the 'superfight', and raied public interest in boxing to a point not seen since Ali's hayday.

Hearns was the last of the 4 to retire, having captured, and i beleieve held simultaneously, world titles at 5 weights!

There is no 'hitman' style. Thomas 'The hitman' Hearns often held his lead hand low and tucked his chin behind his shoulder. He was not the first, or last to do this. Ali used this tactic from time to time, Naseem Hamed always used it, David Haye and Carl Froche are current exponents of the style.
the idea behind it is to offer an inviting target to your oponent, and having drawn them into attack, you slip and counter as they compromise their defence in the attack.
Its all well and good if you have lightning reflexes and impeccable footwork, but if you lack even the slightest in either, then you are just setting yourself up to develop a bad speech impediment by your 8th defeat.

Everyone who has used this tactic has come unstuck, no matter how skilled. Hamed got schooled by a very orthodox Barrera, Haye had to pick himself up off the canvas twice last weekend before coming back to win the cruiser weight title, and we all know that Ali was no stranger to the canvas either.

Forget anime- anime doesnt protect your chin, anime doesnt bleed, anime doesnt loose teeth. If you are going to box, box properly, get experience and find your own style as you develop.

If you think that's bad... about 10 years ago my TKD instructor told the teenagers they should move like Muhammed Ali. Blank expressions all around!

Sorry man but I only know about few boxers but never heard Marvin Hagler.

I'm starting to realize my IQ on boxing history is low but your right no style like your style but forever stuck with my right hand its like no matter how hard I train it it won't punch good my coach keeps telling me its too light it'll do no good in a fight and opponent would just shrug it off and beat me so he told me to keep using my usual style at least i learn a couple things from this it made me know boxing history and now i know about a couple of fighters
I know this might sound ridiculous but I've heard of sugar Ray Robinson but now I'm just finding out about Leonard. Well thank you
