Have you read my posts?

Peek a boo is a guard, it is not a stance.

Three stances - angled off, square on and text book stance which is in between. This is how you hold your feet. Your stance can be orthodox or southpaw.

Peek a boo is like Floyd Patterson and Miguel Cotto.

Everyone can stand differently. The main thing is where the gloves go. Gloves around the chin is normal full guard and as gloves around the cheeks and temple becomes peek a boo.

oo alright. thanks =). one more question in the full gaurd orthodox stance do you actually go on the tip toes of both feet or what? and both hands are ar chin level right? also what are the strategies of a person using this stance usually? jabbing?

If you are stationary then your feet are flat on the floor or slightly pushing off the ball of your right foot. However you will often be moving and thus you get up on your toes. This doesn't mean bouncing about and being all herky jerky but your weight is on the balls of your feet.

Both hands are at chin level. Look at Erik Morales, he usually holds a good text book guard.

You can employ any strategy out of full guard. Jabbing is obviously a key.

on the subject of "no gaurd" fighters, prince naseem was mentioned. does anybody think that he could have actually been affective in the full gaurd style? in my opinion it looked like no gaurd is all he ever learned. probably not the case but your opinions would be interesting.

thanks achilles. i did a little more research and it said that you should use long rhythm in this stance(move head back and forward at all times) is this true?

No, it is not true. That is the sort of stupid shit they teach you in boxing manuals.

Be versatile and do what the situation demands. To do this you need to train hard, spar alot, fight alot and soak up knowledge from the best.

It is true that Prince Naseem often fought in no guard. I do think he could have been AS effective in full guard unless he mastered it well. Don't think this means he couldn't and didn't fight out of full guard because he can and he did.

Hamed like Anthony Small, Jones, Ali and others implemented full guard but weren't complete at it. Jones and Ali for example always use it to fight off the ropes.

The best is someone like Floyd who is complete in full guard, half guard and no guard.

I also learned that trick from the back of a kellogg's cornflakes.
