Default The "Lag punch"

Explain this to me -- how it works maybe some guys who did it well or still do.

I just got done rewatching Brewster-Lyakhovich, in which Lyakhovich seemed to employ it -- a right hand lead preceded by a head movement to avoid a counter left hook.

There used to be a thread on this, but I can't find it.

Basically it's a cut off punch or right hook, wide right. It's sometimes called a lag punch because the head travels first to avoid being hit by a left hook, then the fist lags behind, once the head is away from danger, throw the punch and shift the weight. Also, it's common to counter an opponent's jab with a right to the body but the head movement is less critical that way because the opponent's left is already extended and out of punching/ defending position.

Butch sums it up more or less perfectly.

Watch RJJ v Hill and there is nothing more you need to know.

I think Joey Maxim used a lag punch quite a bit. In fact, a lot of fighters from early eras used it. It was a fairly common punch back then.

I had no idea that move actually had a name. LoL.

RJJ Vs. Hill , is that the one where Hill gets KO'd to the rib?

It's just another name.

I call it the looping right hook to the body. Its just a variation of a normal right hook to the body.

It is the one where RJJ detonated a punch on Hills ribs.
