Default Catalogue of all major unusual techniques

We're all familiar with the jab, cross, parry, etc. What are the less frequent, yet still useful techniques? Everything from Patterson's "gazelle punch" to Moore's cross-arm guard belong here--preferably with video examples.

Of the top of my head I'd add in these:

1. Moore's 'left cross from an orthodox stance.'
2. The Fitzsimmon's Shift. This works very well. I've tried it myself in sparring sessions. The orthodox fighter throws a right cross and simultaneously swings his right foot to the front and outside of the left foot of the opponent. While stepping in the head is low and the left hook is delivered -preferably to the sternum which is lined up well for the well-leveraged hook. You are effectively switching to southpaw position while delivering a right cross to set up and sneak in a left hook with maximum leverage and efficiency.

Good thread, CT. I'm not sure about your avatar, though. Early 20th century boxing historian -champion -sure ... but THE top ESB analyst?

Stanley Ketchel couldn't spell technique. That was probably accidental -the result of his zealous footwork to deliver murderous intentions.

The "smash". A mix between a hook and an uppercut.
I heard it was Ruddock's creation, don't know if it is true thought.

Don't blame me--Decebal's competition awarded me the avatar.

Willie Pep demonstrated some very unorthodox counter punches. In an instance, he may feint a punch, let his opponent react then cycle round them, letting them think they were safe. Then Pep would suddenly spring back with a punch mid-move. Sometimes they'd come from a southpaw stance.

Lennox Lewis's "How Many Fingers?" trick, where he'd raise his right hand in an open-palmed way before jabbing with his left. It was idiosyncratic of him as early as the Gerrard fight, where Andrew Gerrard (always a joker between showing off his iron jaw) copied it.
