Default Best way to setup the uppercut

Would love to know some better combos to setup the uppercut. It's my least used punch. hardest for me to land anyway

if you get good at throwing a right uppercut after a right hook then if you land a right hook to the body you will also land a right uppercut to the head a pretty high % of the time.

another good one is throwing a left uppercut after a 1-2 instead of a left hook.

or just a right uppercut counter after shoulder rolling with a right hand.

Round the sides to get up the middle, up the middle to get round the sides

The switch-hitting right to the body followed immediately with a right uppercut works well for me.

1) This works especially well when you side step after the right hand and place the uppercut to the body.

2) This is really difficult.

I only ever throw it when I'm in very close against the ropes, or when I have an opponent who rushes in. I take a short step back and throw a right uppercut as a counter.

Default Re: Best way to setup the uppercut

One set up is feints/quick shots to the side I plan to throw the upper cut. So if I want to throw a rear uppercut I throw a quick jab to the opponents head (cheating a bit toward his lead side) to get his lead glove and elbow up. Then while retracting the jab to cover me from the cross, firing off the rear upper cut under the elbow. I also do the same with a light fast lead partial hook.

You can do the exact same in mirror image to throw the lead hand, but it is a bit more risky, but can land BIG. Throw a lead cross/hook high and fire the lead uppercut through the guard. You have to really make sure that the dude first respects your power and/or is not a barbarian. That lead uppercut can leave you pretty exposed.

Another setup is a side skip/shuffle in the direction opposite the hand. I like to also cover that with a shoulder fake to get the hands up. It is a little tricky defensively because for a split second you may be squared up, but uppercuts work well squared. So to throw the right you skip left rolling your lead shoulder toward your opponent feigning a punch while changing levels (bending the knees) and loading your right uppercut. When your feet plant you should have positioned yourself perfectly to fire your right straight between his guard. Can be a BIG shot.

Again, the same works in mirror image for the left, but it is more geared towards a VERY aggressive leaning forward fighter. It is also a bit better for a body uppercut with a setup for a booming cleanup hook or straight from the rear hand. Again, it is a ton more risky so I recommend that it not be done be done early.

I like all three of these.

1 is good because people will often drop their arm a bit to the outside to block the blody shot leaving space up the middle.

2 catches them by surprise because most people are expecting a hook to follow the right hand, not an uppercut

and 3 is just nasty and fun to catch people with especially if they learn into their shots

I do this sometimes. its my favorite way to do it as of now. I like to throw the one two, and pivot to my right and throw my left uppercut. That's a dope combo for me

One i really like is against a jab. step right off your opponents jab, through a right uppercut underneath his arm, snap his head up n follow it up with a left hook. it works everytime n since you step off, u literally cannot get countered.

Look at Julio Ceasar Chavez...he was the man! he was a body punch artist and used body punches to throw devastating uppercuts.

Yeah that's a good way to set them up. Cooney or Tyson are good for me to watch to see bodypunches. Tyson moreso for the uppercuts.
