“It’s in Eubank’s hands and we can’t really look past that until the time has elapsed and we expect him to want to rematch.

“I can’t see a better option for Eubank Jr right now.”


Late May is the tentative working date for the rematch, which Smith is hoping will take place at the home of his beloved Liverpool FC.

Shalom said: “If we can make sure the event takes place near enough to the last game of the season which I think is on the weekend of [May] 21, then there is a possibility.

“If we were able to get Anfield it would be the end of May.”

Like Eubank Jr, Smith has intentions of facing former two-time unified middleweight king Golovkin.

Shalom said of Smith’s next move: “For Liam, he wants to look at the Golovkins now.

“[Kell Brook] that’s still a big name for Liam Smith. He feels like he’s dealt with Eubank.

“He wants to fight for a world title again. He’ll deal with Eubank if he has to.

  • Defense
  • Combination
  • Rotation

Punching Techniques

There are seven kinds of punches: Left Hook, Right Hook, Uppercut, Cross, Straight, Overhand and Underhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches need more power than others. A strong uppercut for example requires a lot of force. On the contrary, a straight punch takes less power but is faster than most punches.

There are also different combinations. These are combinations that combine punches to accomplish a particular goal. A combination may have multiple parts. A left hook followed with a right-cross will cause injury to the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

To defend himself from being attacked, a boxer uses his entire body. He does this using his legs and arms, elbows as well as hands, knees and feet.


To defend against kicks, a boxer should use his legs. When he’s hit, he raises his right leg and runs away from the attacker. To avoid being kicked on his side, he will bend his knees if the attack is from the front. If the attack is from the side, he will bend his knees to avoid being kicked on the side.

Elbow strikes are very effective because they inflict much pain. An elbow strike can be delivered directly or indirectly. Directly refers to hitting your opponent with the forearm, while indirect means you hit him using another part of your arms.


Boxers use their hands to block incoming blows. Boxers raise their fists to block incoming blows and then move in the direction of the attacker’s attack. Then, they touch the attacker’s hand.


To absorb the impact of a punch to the stomach, abdomen, or chest, boxers should bend their knees. For defense purposes, knee strikes are common.


If he is being attacked, a boxer must take a step back and counter-attack. This will allow him to gain distance from his opponent. A boxer must also maintain his balance when responding to an opponent’s counter-attack.

To box effectively, a boxer must establish a stance. How he defends his self will depend on how he stances. It determines his position and the direction he will face. Boxers have many options for stances. Here are some of the most common ones:

  • A low stance
  • High stance
  • Southpaw stance
  • Western stance

Body Movement

Boxers must maneuver around their opponent to win fights. This includes changing speed, position and rhythm.


Boxers rotate their arms when they throw a punch. The rotation is done at different speeds depending on the type of punch.


The effectiveness of a combination depends on the timing of each individual punch. A combination that works well starts with strong punches and ends with weak ones is a winning combination.

Spare parts

Sparring is an exercise session to improve boxing skills. A sparring session is where a boxer trains both his mind and his body. Sparring, in conclusion, is about learning how to fight and not getting hurt.
