Hi everyone im new here
I want to ask what exactly a Bolo Punch is
Does this called a Bolo Punch or just a leaping left hook?

Thanks!

Welcome. That's a leaping left hook if I ever saw one.

Welcome aboard mate.

A bolo punch is when you either wind up the right or left hand then cheekly hit the opponent with the other hand, that would be a leaping left hook you got there. Watch Calzaghe vs Hopkins on saturday, Joe will be hitting Hopkins with bolo punches in that fight, he's famed for doing that to opponents.

That's a leaping left hand. The bolo punch was started by the Cuban legend, Kid Gavilan. He explains how he came up with the punch in this video;

If you say Mayweather's destruction of Hatton, you'll see Mayweather (best fighter in the world) use it on Hatton once in the later rounds as Hatton tried to clinch.

Cool GIF by the way, and welcome to the forum.
