Default Re: How useful is boxing in street fighting ?

It all comes down to the advantage anyone with real sparring/fight experience has over people without it. The ability to take a punch and being conditioned not to just move your head back and go off balance is crucial. How many times do you see a street fight where the first punch ends it because as soon as a punch lands they get knocked out or fall over? Thats the biggest advantage a boxer has over people without experience IMO as well as the ability to throw more accurately etc.

Its useful but its no guarantee
