Default Re: How useful is boxing in street fighting ?

A serious pugilist is, at his heart, a fighter, and I see the bare fundamentals of controlling distance, defending one's head and body, and setting up short accurate blows with full torque as more than enough for someone who's life is in danger against the average unarmed aggressor.
Very true
