Having the Right Tools in Your Armoury Is Key
A good coach will teach their athlete many different styles, then allow the athlete to chose which style suits their needs in any given situation. An athlete may change from one style to another style within a bout, depending on the opposition and tactics in the fight. A boxer who is aware of the different styles of attack and defence can control the fight, they will be able to respond appropriately to styles of fighters and have a distinct tactical advantage over their opponent.
The Boxing Skills section looks at a boxers shot selection, what counters work best in situations, how body type can effect shot selection and how different styles makes fights interesting.
