And while he produced an impressive display, it ended in a split decision draw.

He stepped away from boxing in 2018 after two knockout defeats in a row – including a first round KO loss to WBC flyweight champion Daigo Higa.

But Fuentes then returned in 2021 after more than three years out of the ring, only to lose to Cuellar and suffer the heartbreaking brain clot in the process.

Here are some basic skills in boxing

How to box effectively

Boxing is the most loved sport in the world. It consists of two opponents who try to knock out each other’s head. Different countries have different rules. In general, there are three types of boxing; Amateur, Professional and Olympic boxing.

Amateur boxing may be done at school, college, and university. This type of boxing allows sparring without protection. Usually amateur boxing competitions consist of three rounds of five minutes each. There are many styles of amateur boxing such as Kickboxing or Muay Thai, Taekwondo and Karate, Judo and Wrestling, among others.

Most professional boxing takes place in gyms, clubs, and stadiums. They have protective equipment such as mouthpieces. Six rounds of professional boxing last four minutes each. There are many styles to professional boxing.

Olympic boxing is performed at the Olympics. Special protective gear must be worn by boxers to ensure compliance with international standards. The competition lasts eight rounds of three minutes each. Only two types of Olympic boxing are available: Light Flyweight or Heavyweight.

Boxing is based on the following skills:

  • Punching techniques
  • Guarding techniques
  • Footwork
  • Stance
  • Body movement
  • Defense
  • Combination
  • Rotation
  • Spare parts

Punching Techniques

There are seven kinds of punches: Left Hook, Right Hook, Uppercut, Cross, Straight, Overhand and Underhand. Each punch is unique. Some punches need more power than others. An uppercut, for instance, requires tremendous strength. A straight punch, on the other hand requires less power and is quicker than other punches.

There are also different combinations. These are combinations of punches that work together to achieve a specific 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 uses his arms, legs, elbows, knees, knees, and feet to do this.

Legs

A boxer must use his legs to defend against kicks. If he gets kicked, he raises one leg and turns away from his attacker. If the attacker is coming from the front, he will bend at the knees to avoid getting kicked on either side. But if the attack comes in the back, he will stand straight and block the kick using his foot.

Elbows

Elbow strikes are very powerful because they inflict great pain. You can either deliver an elbow strike directly, or indirectly. Directly means that your opponent is hit with your forearm. However, indirectly means that your elbow strike is delivered with another part or your arm.

Hands

Boxers use the power of their hands to block any incoming blows. Boxers raise their fists to block incoming blows and then move in the direction of the attacker’s attack. The attacker’s fist is then in their face.

Knees

To absorb the impact of a punch to the stomach, abdomen, or chest, boxers should bend their knees. Defense purposes are often served by knee strikes.

Feet

A boxer should not be afraid to respond to an attack. This way, he can gain distance between himself and his opponent. Boxers should also keep their balance when counter-attacking.

Stances

Boxing is only possible if a boxer has a clear stance. How he defends his self will depend on how he stances. It determines his position and the direction he will face. Boxers can take many different stances. These are the most popular:

  • Low stance
  • High stance
  • Southpaw stance
  • Western stance

Body Movement

A boxer must change his position, speed and rhythm in order to win the fight. This involves changing positions, speed, rhythm and timing.

Rotation

Rotating his arm to increase the puncher’s reach is a key part of boxing. You can rotate at different speeds depending upon the punch.

Combinations

The timing of each punch will determine the effectiveness and efficiency of a combination. A good combination starts with a strong punch and ends with a weak one.

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 is a way to learn how to fight without getting hurt.

To sum it all, boxing requires patience and dedication. To become a better boxer, you must train hard and for a long time.
