Default Re: Strike to the throat ko. You'll cringe

I would think it takes a very powerful punch to actually collapse a throat and restrict breathing or cause suffocation. In the video, my opinion is he is collapsed from the pain and probably a **** load of fear - but I imagine he can still breathe. I mean even if your bones/cartilage are completely shattered, the lungs should be strong enough to force air through - albeit very painfully and laboriously.

Anyways, i won't pretend to be a medical expert, just my opinion.

I did get punched in the throat in one of my (boxing) fights last year - with a 10 oz glove. It was fortunately not hard enough to injure me. In fact, it didn't even bother me during the fight. What did bother me was the hometown crowd reacting like it was a clean hit. lol.

But I can say, my throat was sore for the next 2 weeks. Strangely enough, it felt EXACTLY like a sore throat from infection due to cold/flu.

What's worse, a strike to the throat, or this?

That would definitely be worse than a strike to the throat if there were no one there to stop the fight.

Yeah. Dan Miller choking Dave Phillips. Phillips only fought once (or twice depending on the source) more after that, a full year later, but apparently there was no permanent damage.

Someone died from a soccer kick ? Or a stomp ? or a 12-6 elbow ?

And when I mean die is in a sanctioned fight...before all those were banned... !

it shouldnt happen easy, because you should have your chin tucked..but if you get your head knocked back (say a good hard up jab to the forehead) you can than get hit in the throat, (if the guy you are fighting is shorter it is easier as well).
Johnstown gets hit in the throat all the time... by his boyfriend's ballbag.
