    Just to add to the answer:

    You are allowed to jump at somebody if you feel inclined as well as stay in stances. You can block and parry, but you can't trap or impede the your opponents arms by holding, etc.

    Mr Nunchaku

    Don't go into a deep stance against a Boxer,you will be eaten alive.

    From my experience backfists,reverse punches & ridgehands are not that effective esp. with gloves on.
    For self-defense I find a hammerfist is better than a backfist,The cross is better than the reverse punch & A palm slap is better & safer than a ridgehand.

    In Boxing you want to keep it simple,fast,accurate & powerful.Hands up & chin down.

    You can clinch, but that's only for defensive and resting purposes, to break the rhythm of the opponent. Good boxers can tie up the arms of their opponents and buy time.

    As for punches, backfists are illegal, but i think knife hand type techniques could be gotten away with (with gloves on) since they could appear to be poorly structured hooks.

    why not just throw a proper hook? that's what I would do.

    i prefer the backfist to hammerfist.

    i personally find it easier to settle and twist into the strike with my fist verticle .. . just a matter of opinion though.

    Joe Frazier kicked butt. Ever see the punch Ali took off him? Where he got up after 3 secs?

    It is my understanding that backfist are illegal due to the lack of padding on the top of the glove.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    but i'm saying in the heat of a fight, they may not be noticed.

    Maybe you can explain to me the difference between a right cross and a reverse punch in a left lead stance. We use the term interchangeably.

    reverse punch snaps out straight like a jab . .. cross cuts through the target at an angle. i guess a cross would kinda be like the inbetween of a jab and a hook.

    the reverse punch is more comparable to the straight right than it is to the cross.

    So a straight right is not a cross?
    I thought a cross was just a powerful straight right, kind of ****ed by the left jab?

    Can someone explain then - cross
    straight right/reverse punch

    i thought i did.

    the jab is going to hit the guy in the nose and send the energy through the back of his head.

    the cross is going to hit the guy in the cheak and send energy through his face to the other side of his cheak.

    that's the most concise way i can think of to explain the difference right now.
