Default During your fights, do you ever taunt your opponent?

Well?

It's not allowed to taunt in international bouts. I just keep a straight face. I never feel the need to taunt anyone.

only in sparring, and its usually telling them to hit me harder in the stomach. Don't know why I do it, bad habit. Haven't done it in a real match.

If I want to show off at a safe distance away from the opponent, I'll do a little "come here" motion with my right hand then I shoot it up to guard the incoming K.O haymaker.. good times..

Default Re: During your fights, do you ever taunt your opponent?

Apparently my nervous system's automatic response to getting rocked is to taunt my opponent. It may have lost me my first fight.

Every time I got hurt I'd jump back and stick my chin out, drop my hands, shake my head, something like that. Don't remember doing it but the tape clearly shows me being a retard. Funny bc every time I did it he'd jump in and hit me in the face two or three times.

It might have shook him up a little and kept him from going for the KO against me though? Idk.

I sometimes do the Pacquiao clap, not as a taunt but to signal that I'm OK. Although, it's usually not understood the way I meant it to be.

Sorry, I just laughed at the "Don't remember doing it but the tape clearly shows me being a retard"

No. It's stupid. And believe me, as an official, I can say that it pisses off the ref and the judges.

I have a habit of nervous laughing. I get hit and I will laugh. It has always been the same though since I was a kid at school. I think it is just nerves.
