Considering the earliest evidence of boxing dates back to 3000 BC, there's no surprise that boxing techniques and styles have evolved dramatically. As new rules and equipment emerged, different strategies were subsequently utilised. In the upcoming article, we look at the 4 main styles of boxing, discussing their characteristics and the notable personnel who utilised them. We discuss the different styles and explore why styles and strategies have fluctuated.
The swarmer applies relentless pressure, overwhelming their opponent by pressing and pestering. Swarmers have a good punching output, are powerful, and fast on their feet in order to manoeuvre inside. The majority of swarmers are short, with the boxing style taking away an opponents reach. They intend to overwhelm their opponents with a series of jabs and uppercuts and require a 'good chin' as their style leaves them vulnerable to punches.
What the slugger lacks for in finesse, they make up for in raw strength and power. Sluggers are often slow punchers and lack mobility, however, have the ability to catch their opponent off guard and knock them out with a single powerful punch. Sluggers ordinarily throw few punches, using predictable punching patterns which make them vulnerable to counter-measures.
The antithesis of the swarmer, the out-boxer seeks to maintain a gap between themselves and their opponent. They fight with long-range, fast punches. Out-boxers are usually less powerful, relying on weak jabs, straights and fast footwork. They tend to win on points rather than by knockout punches.
Possessing the hand-speed and counter-punching skills of the out-boxer, the power of the slugger and aggression of the swarmer, the boxer-puncher is a highbred of the 3 aforementioned styles. Boxer-punchers are difficult to categorise at they may be closer in style to the swarmer, slugger or out-boxer.
