Default What Punching Style is Most Effective

Comments Welcome.

I'm a thud man myself but I can appreciate a good strafe

NB: BlackBrenny used the word 'strafe' during the BJS/Hall thread on Thursday evening. His use of this word and the subsequent amusement it engendered in me was the inspiration for this thread.

This thread would not have happened without Brenny.

Brenny is the best, funniest, most erudite, inventive and witty poster in the history of the world.

Thud to the body and head for most of the round to wear the opponent down for later rounds, and strafe towards the end of rounds to catch the judges eyes.

Do you have examples of this style?

It's new on me that one.

The sweet science of boxing is to strafe & not get hit.

Therefore, I have voted for strafing.

I would say that the Pickled Onion Flavour Monster Munch Strafing of someone like Kell Brook is more pleasing to me than the Golden Wonder Bovril Flavour Thudding of your Tony Bellews of this world.

I've always preferred the blort style however I've recently started to use the buckaroo technique, which mostly consists of waiting for the missus to pop to the shops so I can look at some filth on the internet.

Don't get defensive Brenda I applaud your choice of this somewhat cumbersome and anachronistic word (as you did my use of BUFFOON)

This thread/poll is a celebration not a mockery.

And how can anyone be 'jealous' of you, having freely admitted you are/were Craney's 'friend' ?

Superb savoury snack analogies there from Biglads.

Don't be a pedant Brenda Friend it's a 'fun' thread, (becoming increasingly less 'fun' however with your negative contributions)

The Brenny Tmeline:

1. In disgrace for defending Craney and being his 'friend'

2. A degree of redemption for introducing 'strafing' to the BJS/Hall thread

3. Sliding back into disgrace for his rubbish posts in this thread and using the deeply patronising term 'noobs'
