Hey, I saw this post up somewhere in this morass of posts and was too lazy to go find it again. I just thought I'd give some input as I myself am a boxer. The original post was a man wondering what to do in a situation where he was pitted against a boxer. He believed he would be wasted by one. A well trained boxer is extremely proficient at dodging, which we call the slip and bob. If you go against a decent boxer he will be able to dodge almost 100% of your punches even if his hands were tied behind his back. It will become even harder when he has the use of his hands because he can then parry or counterstrike. Another problem with going against a boxer is that they train constantly for extreme speed and power so most likely in most cases, they will probably be as fast if not way faster than a Martial Artist. (I take martial arts as well so I can compare the two) Boxers also take many hits during their fights and are accustomed to the pain. Pain will not stop them most likely. We get knocked down a lot, we break chins, noses, etc. A few said to maybe get really close to a boxer and unleash from the "in" position. If you are going against a boxer who is tall and has a long reach this is what shorter boxers do to them so they will most likely be trained how to react in this situation. If you are against a shorter boxer, this is where they like to fight. Get back. A few also said to maybe throw some kicks at a distance. I kickboxed as well, most boxers would dodge your kick or take it/block it, whatever, and then they'd be all over you and fast. Boxers also use angles extremely well so taking them head on fist-to-fist is not adviseable. The only two methods I would recommend against a boxer are taking it to the ground as fast as you can, or (if you are confident in your abilities) concentrate your rear-leg rounhouse's to his lead leg thigh and be ready to protect yourself if he rushes in after your kick. If you can continuously pound that thigh he won't be able to stand, let alone fight you. If you manage to get him to the ground be sure you know some brazilian ju-jitsu or are proficient with wrestling (Boxer's tend to be very strong, but ill versed in ground tactics). Use these only if you can't outrun him, in which case run away. If you go against a kick boxer it is a whole 'nother story. Try to get them to the ground ASAP but beware of knees to the face as you go to grab a leg. You may be able to get some kick boxers or boxers for that matter to focus on your legs if you continuously use leg attacks and then smash them in the face with a punch while they are watching your feet. Other than that...pray.
