Saw that fight.

It wasn't the feint. That guy just had no business in the ring with Rigo. If you notice. In response to the "feint" he closed his eyes and loaded up a shot. Rigo is way to experienced for that nonsense and knocked him out as expected.

What are you trying to say? Rigo does it in every fight.

I always assumed it was a habit that came from countless hours of shadow boxing. He has really mastered technique and movement. Beautiful thing to watch

That isn't a feint. It is something done in the ring, but not a feint. The only reason a feint works is because it is a motion that the other fighter thinks will reasonably lead to a punch. Only time some crap like that will work or be used is when the fighter doing it feels 100% safe. Unless you are "That Dude", it is stupid to study this as a tactic. If you ask? You aren't "That Dude".

Honestly, Rigo hasn't fought anyone of merit. That guy looked like he wasn't even a local gym champ. That isn't a knock on Rigo's merit, but that BS wouldn't/shouldn't trouble any top level fighter with top level speed, reflexes, instinct, etc...

Rigo and Gamboa do it to every fighter they face. I wouldn't call it a feint either. But a feint can work against anybody.

idk. I'm not that dude but I can pull this off really well in the ring, especially with people in opposite stances.

A glove stuck out like that causes you to instinctively favor/lean to one side. It's an off-ballancing technique. Think about it: how often do you as a fighter see a fast or slow punch coming and instinctively slip to one side or the other. When something obstructs your line of sight in the ring, you move your head or body in reaction to one side.

It isn't a feint but it functions as one because it draws a reaction, even a slight one. It breaks up their rhythm and makes them think about what you're doing. And it loads up your hook. It loads up your hook real good...

You see Andre Ward do the same thing. They are always slowing down punches to perfection while in practice to train superior technique and muscle memory.. They have great control over their mechanics and have been able to use it in the ring to pull their punches and replace it with another in quick succession.

It's a technical dominance for ring generalship imo
