Episode 3 of “Styles Make Fights” is all about boxer-punchers.

For those unfamiliar with this Heavy Hands series, “Styles Make Fights” is all about the way combat athletes do their thing–not technically, per se, but mentally. Which way does the fighter prefer to move? Where does he like to stand in the ring or cage? How does he act under duress? These are the questions that help us to understand the mindset at the heart of any fighter’s style.

Today, we’re talking about the Boxer-Puncher, a sort of catch-all category that even Pat and I don’t perfectly understand. We break down the styles of some notable boxer-punchers, namely Canelo Alvarez, Urijah Faber, and Eder Jofre, and try to figure out what exactly makes one a boxer-puncher in the first place.

The discussion is a good one, and we hope you enjoy it–next week we’ll visit our “Styles Make Fights” series again and talk about pressure fighting, with the help of Gennady Golovkin, Anthony Johnson, and Chris Weidman.
