Ever look at a boxer demonstrating a combination of punches?
Make a fist with the tips of your fingers touching your palm. Now open a gap between your fingers and palm. Oh, maybe a half inch. That’s the way I´ve seen pro boxers holds their hands - at least when he´s demonstrating.
What strikes me is, whether it´s Muhammed Ali or journeyman fighter, I have never seen one of them clench his fists tightly.
So, that´s my question. Do boxers keep their fists loose like that throughout a fight?
How about street fighting? I cannot imagine being in a bare knuckle brawl with loose fists.
