90 Second Boxing Tips – The Hook and Roll

90 Second Boxing Tips – The Hook and Roll

by Fran on December 17, 2016


Working on combining body movements with punching is one of the finest boxing tips I can pass on to you.

When boxers do this, and the top guys do it all the time, the outcome is about increased power and increased defensive protection.

In this video we are going to combine the roll (also called the bob and weave) with the short range left hook.

If you want to see a great exponent put this type of skill to practice, check out Smokin’ Joe Frazier…this was his stock-in-trade.

Here’s the video then below are a couple of key points to take away.

Some key points:

  • Use your legs to generate the roll, isolate your back.  Do not lean forward by using your waist…this is lazy and dangerous.
  • Make the 2 skills blend into one

It’s really that simple.  Do this and short and mid range and adjust the length of your hook accordingly.

Any questions or observations then let me know

Cheers Fran. Will do!

Top video Fran. Could you also throw an uppercut after the rolll? Just trying it out myself, the uppercut seems alot more awkward than a hook to throw?


Fran December 18, 2016 at 6:43 pm

You can Gerry. Bear in mind the uppercut, especially the lead hand uppercut, is always more challenging to throw than the hook. It can definitely work well though so keep practicing.
