Moving your head in boxing is a defensive tactic and technique used to set up a punch. Legendary boxing trainer Cus D’Amato once said, “When you can hit your opponent but he can't hit you, that’s when you are a fighter.” Boxers train to slip, or dodge, punches by quickly moving their head to one side, then back to center. To deliver a power shot, first move your head to the side of your power hand, then uncoil as you deliver the punch. You can become a better boxer with drills that improve the defensive and offensive techniques of moving your head.
