Saenchai and Pot clinching at Sinbi

Clinch work in class tonight.  Here's a good video from Sinbi Muay Thai in Thailand with Saenchai clinching with Pot, one of their trainers.  Saenchai is P4P one of the best fighters in the world, but Pot is able to control him at close range with excellent clinch technique and flow.

Ricky Hatton and body punching

Tonight in class we were working on different ways of setting up and applying the lead hook to the body.  Check out former boxing champ and great body puncher Ricky Hatton talk about he throws body shots.

Also check out this other video at 3:21 to see Ricky demonstrate a variation of the slide/pivot body hook setup that we worked at the end of class.

Nonito Donaire's left hook

Nonito Donaire is another great boxer who is known for having an incredible lead hook.  This video is a good demonstration of it, super slow motion from multiple angles.  Again look for the mechanics that we worked in class this week, including the elbow follow-through, shift in weight, and trajectory.

Felix Trinidad's left hook

Felix Trinidad was a great boxer who was known for having a monstrous lead hook.  Watch the hooks that he throws in this highlight and keep an eye out for the mechanics we worked in class tonight, including the arc throughout the punch, the elbow follow-through, and the trajectory toward the opposite shoulder.
