I'm a boxer-puncher. I train to mix up my attack to alternatly box, countering after catching jabs with an open hand (a SORELY underused technique by modern day fighters, and totally UNUSED in MMA) and parrying right hands. This requires less foot movement and you can pretty much stand in front of your opponent making them miss getting them tired and frustrated as they are getting hit more by you then you by them. I'll alternately move laterally or circle while using these techniques.

I turn puncher if a fighter is faster with his hands and feet looking to get in and out with combos, or potshotting. I'll switch to cutting the ring off throwing feints to get him out of position and relying on my own handspeed to "time" and catch him coming in. Once he slows down, I'll start setting traps for him to unload on him, with control.

Sooner or later it's "beddy bye".

Embrace the pain...train hard bro...TRAIN!

I my self am 6'4 and 1/2, I wiegh about 215lbs. I am pretty quick for my size and i like to move around and throw jabs and crosses alot. If I see an opening I will unload a combo or maybe one big over hand. However, my long arms keep me from being effective inside so it is always neccesary for me to get a good clinch. If I can control a guys head or arms it makes inside fighting alot easier for me because shorter arms are faster. Holding a good clinch on the back of the neck can definatley add power as well.

The thing I do is step in.. jab.. and move out, wait for a punch and counter with a small flurry. After I do this I circle. What style is this?

Hmmm....I'd say I'm a boxer-puncher. I catch punches with my open palm and parry for my defense usually. But even though I fight like a boxer , I go for the power shots often.
P.S : Why is the open palm parry never used in mma and rarely used in boxing, as it works well for me.

From the article's definition of each boxing style, I would be categorized as a "Boxer-Puncher."

I like to move my feet and switch angles continuously ala GSP and AA, and my punches have good power behind them when I'm around the 170 lb. range. I wonder what kind of power they'd pack if I could work my ass off, and cut down to the 55 range...?

You know...I'll switch it up though. Move in and out - jab - jab - cross - step back - switch angle - body shot, inside leg kick - move back - feint the superman punch - high kick - move out - switch angle - throw a hard overhand right.....just different sequences and combos you know?

I also like the technique of pawing with the left hand...sometimes catching the jab with my open hand so I can land a clean punch right to the mouthpiece. Just been trying different things lately, but that's my base.

I've been training lately...strictly on my MT striking (the last 6 months or so...), cause I wanna adapt my skills to a VERY high level.

Oh, and I have to stay light on my feet and avoid punches to the grill...I'm still modeling, so I can't take SEVERE damage you know?

i'm a monster
i'm a maven
i know this world is changin'
never gave in
never gave up
i'm the only thing i'm afraid of

I dont know what i am.

I was in boxing for 3 years, my style was extremely aggresive,most def the most aggresive style boxer at the club.

Id throw long combo's to the body and the head and put allot of pressure on people.

Usually id start off my combo with a few jabs and a cross, but then really open up. I threw lots of overhand rights and lefts, and even more hooks and uppercuts.

really just piling on the combo's at an extremely fast pace. tired myself out pretty good too. I dont really know what i am thats my style tho.
