Default Put your Chin Up in the air if your about to be punched on it!?

Sounds like bad advice dosnt it?

Well if you watch ALi closely in slow mo, you will notice he does precisely this when dodging punches with head movement, he "GOES WITH THE FLOW" and dissipates the force to his chin by lifting his chin in air literally. (he does this when they miss just incase they had struck dead on)

The most blatant utilization of this technique ive seen is Naseem Hammed he does it all the time in the mst exaggerated way possible and it works, he has a small head and a pencil neck yet hes never been knocked out. 9although granted flyweights dont hit very hard)

My question is do you tuck the chin always and never ever remove it from its tcked position? Or do you wave it in the air like these guys do to dissipate the power of a punch aimed at it?

Ali got away with a lot of stuff because he had very fast reflexes and because most heavyweights aren't very good. Pulling away from punches like he did, chin in the area, is a good way to get yourself scrambled. You might get away with it for a time, but you will get caught, as happened to Ali more than once, and may God help you once your reflexes slip just a bit.

If my coach saw me do that he would literally beat my ass, think most other coaches would too. Mike Tyson leaned forward when he punched and Roy Jones JR had his hands down most of the time but they were really gifted athletes and those kind of things should not be replicated by an amateur fighter

Ali got hit a whole lot after he slowed down a bit. Hamed kissed the canvas more than a dozen times. So, obviously this is not a good idea.

How often has James Toney or Mike McCallum been dropped? They NEVER put their chin up in the air.

Zab Judah and Michael Nunn. There's two great examples of why you shouldn't do it... LOL

It may help to slip a lot of punches clean... but at a much higher risk of occasionally getting hit flush and KTFO.

Yes, this is ONLY for those with way above average reflexes and speed.
