Boxing Defences: Clinching

This type of defensive move is very simple and it can prevent punches from your opponent or it can at least reduce their effectiveness and strength. At the same time as your opponent moves towards you and gets ready to strike, take a hold of his whole body with one or both arms. Very often fighters choose to use clinching at the end of a fight, when they are too exhausted and clinching gives them the opportunity to rest for a second. Sometimes, you can also use clinching to buy yourself some time and to consider your next move and regroup.
