cause to slip punches takes allot of training.....you need to have really gotten used to seeing punches coming....most mma guys now a days tend to come from more of a grappling background...than when they do train mma....they are lucky if they spend half the time training stand up....hence most dont really get too enough to slip (a few exceptions, anderson silva)

beyond that..most the mma trainers I know have a very basic understanding of boxing (kind of like the guys i mentioned on the tysontalk website) and just assume that a high guard is how you have to do it no matter what..and that holding your hands down is a sign of lack of skill or laziness.

Most boxers don't have ATG skills/talent/ability.
