      @fightTIPS dropped him in last round it was a adrenaline shot though. You kinda lost balance cause I kinda hit him near the back of the head so I finished him of with a double jab and hook. Thx

    Shaneee, i got a question, is there anything that i could do to support my lungs? So i dont get gassed out easily while in training, when ever theres like 3 set with 3 mins heavybag work out, after 1 set im already Gassed out, all i did was guard up and breath, but it wasted much time to get my energy back, so do you have any suggestion or workout that i could do to not gassed out easily?

      @Michael Moniz agreed, he would have an even weaker left throwing oddly across his body unless he could pivot to get the line up right.

    jesse the cat 2 months ago

    Russian step looks useful. I'm able to connect a lot on the retreat also will moving but non of it is educated just moving out of the line of attacks and going to what ever openings they provide I also switch from taps to harder quicker shots so they can't get my rythm down. Right now I'm trying to develop a way to attract safely before the opponent is tired. I usually counter and move around until they are tired then I plant my feet more and just go forward with harder shots by that time they so tired they just take it thing Is the guys I train with are developing a similar style to my own so now it's harder to do that on each other 😂 I need to learn more setups coming in pretty much is what I'm trying to say I know a couple already and pretty much now it's just a mater of outsmarting the other guy because its like they haven't seen my moves before I mean theres only so much you can do.

  • konpoy
    konpoy 2 months ago

    Just a piece of advice from a russian on the sidestep with the left hook and/or which is even better with the left uppercut. Dont just step with the lead foot out but step out and behind your opponent. That way you are by his pocket and ready to either continue to punish him or move out of the way as he continues to move forward and its gonna take him longer to adjust. Also you may find it to have more leverage to keep your weight mostly on the right foot like you do in the video but if you put more weight (60%) on the left foot you are going to create more distance between yourself and your opponent. Great video nevertheless!
    PS soviet school style knockout special. A boxing fight in Kazakh prison. One of the guys actually performs that sidestep with the right hook from southpaw position. Plz enjoy!

    L steppers end fights quick, cause its not safe to advance on somebody who is powerful at it. They will corral you, and then sleep you in a corner.

    Most motherfuckers dont know shit about boxing. For the guys who dont studied boxing the tutorial is ok. But for a boxing gym the tutorial is poor. Number 4 is called sidestep. As a russian boxer I can tell you :) Tip nr 5. is some unbelivable shit :D

    The dropstep jab is similar to the Russian step except for using the left hook in the Russian step

    • fightTIPS
      fightTIPS  2 months ago

      Yes! And the angle in which you step is different -- the dropstep goes more of a -180° backwards, where the russian step steps -90° to the side 👍
