    What uncommon or unorthodox (not talking about lefies) punches do you throw? Also what's one of the ways you set it up? I've been recently trying to find all the footage I can of Roy Jones bolo punch.

    I sometimes fake a left hook and throw an uward jab/long left uppercut a la Frank Mir with a vertical fist in between the hole that is created if the opponent falls for the left hook and tries to block it.

    I also like hooks to the body. Not uppercuts/hookercuts most throw to the body but real proper hooks to get behind the elbows and hit the ribs. Most throw hookercuts to the body and not real hooks at least in my experience. Golovkin also likes real hooks behind the elbows of a guarding opponent

    Cuban uppercut. I'll throw my rear uppercut with a full shift of weight to my lead foot, instead of anchoring on the back foot and driving the punch up with my hips. Set it up with a jab to the opponent's right glove, but let the jab hang out there as you step in and to the left. Throw the uppercut between their guard, then come back with a left hook or pivot off.
