However, I've always wondered, how do you go about fighting someone that goes all out ape $hit wild charging in and throwing haymakers left and right? You can't really box someone like this, so what do you do?
I clinch those guys and give them a couple hard knees to the body. That always slows them down. Also good hard push kicks to the body. If you knock the wind out of them for constantly coming forward they will start to think about it and slow down. Then every now and them when they start to come forward you can feint the push kick by just lifting up your knee waist high. Sometimes guys will hunch over to brace themselves for the kick, I like to plant my foot down hard and land with the jab at the same time, then cross hook low kick.

Oh and if you are straight boxing just keep it simple and throw jab cross right down the middle.

funny that's the same way i fight a big clumsy fat sasquatch in my tkd school...she's lucky I don't let go on her
I know my teacher thinks I'm going to spar her (orange belt ) for my purple belt. I don't think so b/c I don't want her 55-yr-old self to get hurt.

No this woman just took cheap shots at me about 18 mos ago when I moved up to orange belt i.e. drilling me with clumsy kicks in point sparring when yr. only supposed to tap. I went to jam her and she's so uncoordinated I knocked her down. I should also add that my teacher had not helped me refine the process of jamming someone which I made sure he knew. She claimed she hurt her knee and later I said to my teacher months later, "I don't know how you hurt your knee when you fall on your ass." This woman doesn't understand sportsmanlike point sparring for rank, she gets all heavy. She is still clumsy, ungraceful and uncoordinated after having taken tkd for almost 4 years. She only spars her partner in a semiprivate lesson once a week when I take class 2-4x and week and routinely get beat up by the male students and my teacher. Now she's coming to self defense sparring and I stay away from that particular class because I don't need to have any more violent impulses toward people.

If you think only 12-yr-olds get pissed off in their martial arts classes think again, my class is half women in their 30s and 40s, except for the old pair in the semiprivate lesson I referred to earlier.

What's worked for me would have to be this:

When I get in a street fight, (which was all too often) I'd normally be drunk :S, I usually just faked the first punch then side stepped and let him throw at me, then i'd come in with "an upperhook", Basicly i like to catch people under the chin at a 45* angle. Not being big headed but i've never hit anyone with that punch that they didn't go down.

I took boxing for 4 or 5 years and I'm hopefully going to start Muay Thai. Im'a keep my fighting inside the ring from now on, wouldn't wana be the steriotypcial irish man lol

Counter punching and head movement. And hey, if it's MMA and not just boxing maybe drop your level and go for the takedown and beat them up on the ground.

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.

Pretty much what everyone else has said, good footwork/ head movement. Another thing that really helps is good conditioning, 95% of "non fighters" gas within the first 2 minutes of a fight. My personal favorite is a double jab rush to a double leg .

You dont...

cause they probably have 5 friends and maybe a gun. Street fights end in legal trouble or being jumped.

Believe.

Yea if its a street fight and its just you vs him (them) you'll probably get jumped, rough times in north philly... But if its some jackass after school (only one or two these experiences at my old military school) I used to change my level and shoot a double, if someone has no experience on the ground getting a good position is like clockwork and then a few elbows and they see blood and the fights over- or its someone who is a tough son of a gun and you better be ready to scrap. But in general I would avoid those situations.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.
