Sun Sep 6, 2020, 02:58 PM
Sep 2020

Falling forward, and not putting out arms to brace the fall means one is O-U-T!
A short, from the shoulder right, even on the button, shouldn't do that, but if the "tough guy" completely missed that punch was coming, it's lights out.
Had a boxing coach in Aurora tell me 45 years ago that 2 guys around the same size generally can't knock the other out with one punch unless it's timed so well that dude never saw it coming.
Sure looks like that happened here.

right-habd punches were those of the all-time great Joe Louis. You have to love his intensity.



It takes a lot of skill to render an opponent unconscious. In most cases, a "one-punch knockout" happens when you catch the opponent coming into your strength. And it is that one you don't see coming that is what either hurts the most, or knocks you out.

... but this thread induced me to do some wiki reading. I learned about the "one two" and here I see Joe doing this over and over - sometimes the jab does not even seem to connect, then POW.

I was surprised to find out that the lead side is the weaker side, left for a right hander. But on reflection, that makes sense.

Sun Sep 6, 2020, 10:14 PM

When a person starts boxing, everything feels backwards. The strangest thing, as you noticed, is that a right-handed person has their left foot forward -- and hence their left hand. But in time, it becomes "first nature." I beat plenty of good fighters using almost only my left. It can be used to jab (most important), hook, or uppercut (these become as hard of punches as your right). Doing this gives an advantage in footwork, defense, and definitely offense.

If you see the film of the great heavyweight champion Joe Louis, you'll note that jab is frequently a "range-finder." It sets up the right. Note how Joe sifts his weight as he moves, from the back foot to the front -- both when he is cutting the distance between him and his victim, and also as he throws that right-hand punch. All of his strength, from the toes on his right foot up to his right shoulder, are going into the punch. (Thus, if needed, his left foot has kept his balance -- essential for punching-power -- which is a triangle with his two feet and middle chest as the three points. Now, he can twist off the left foot, and throw a left hook.)

You can see his head turn right in response to the hit. He was unconscious before he even hit the ground. Out like a light, as they say.

I normally don't like to watch violence or people fighting. But this was quite satisfying.

Seems the natural instinct is to lean in, grab or whale away with wide, wild swings. No thought towards self protection. Sets them up for some awful damage from someone with at least a little training. Seen it more than a few times as a youngster.

I don’t normally like watching violence either, and actually hesitated before posting, but I felt in this case the guy deserved it and it just felt good to see some justice being served...finally.

It was my son who found it and sent to me. But he sent to me with the warning “mom, I wouldn’t go hanging around that subreddit long because it can get real toxic and sometimes racist.” Nice when your kids look out for you, lol. My son has the courage to check out pro-Trump subreddits and argue with some of the maniacs who post there. I don’t have the stomach for that.

Most people do not know how to fight.

A while back, I had posted about a BLM rally in a village near me. One of the MAGA people had started a fight, but was also quickly on the ground -- largely because he was drunk.

Reminded me of when the poor bastard was an undefeated amateur boxer, one or two weight classes above me. Some fools thought he was ready to fight me. I knocked him out in 24 seconds of the first round.

Knocking someone out means inflicting a concussion. Should not be done in boxing, nor in street fighting.

Concussions are serious injuries--sometimes invisible, as we have learned from the NFL.

Despite the cartoons and seeing stars.

Not that I do not enjoy seeing the jerk splayed out.

Especially not in today’s world. All the peaceful BLM protesters would have had to stay home and not even attempt to get in what John Lewis calls “Good trouble”.

The BLM protestor in this video didn’t throw the first punch, the MAGA man did. What would you have him do instead? He also stood there calmly after the MAGA man was down. Didn’t jump up and down as in celebration. Didn’t try to do any additional damage like kick him while he was down. Didn’t gloat.
