How to Fight Like Floyd Mayweather

Save

Considered one of the best pound-for-pound boxers of all time, Floyd 'Money' Mayweather's undefeated career is held in high regard by the boxing world. His signature moves and killer technique have inspired countless boxers. You can box like a champion by following Mayweather's style.

  • Demonstrate super flexibility at the waist. Mayweather is an extremely difficult opponent to hit even when pushed into a corner or against the ropes, as he uses his exceptional torso agility to slip punches and weave from side to side.

  • Counterattack with your left hook. After dodging his opponents with his backwards waist bends and head jukes, Mayweather comes back in hard with his left hook. This is how he won his bouts against both Robert Apodaca and Ricky Hatton.

  • Defend using the shoulder roll technique, taught to Mayweather by his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr. A more traditional boxing move, the shoulder roll is achieved by holding the left hand near your midsection, the right hand slightly higher than normal, and raising the right shoulder to guard your cheek and chin.

  • Stay pretty by guarding your face from cuts or bruises. That's how Mayweather earned his nickname "Pretty Boy" Floyd and his reputation as a fearsome defender.

  • Execute quick foot movements. Mayweather is one of the most elusive boxers of all time, which makes him exciting to watch. He achieves this partly by staying constantly on the move, shuffling from side to side and in and out of jab range.
