The cross counter is a commonly used technique in the boxing world. It is a counter punch delivered via a right cross.


The counter is performed on an incoming jab or straight. It is not usually performed on uppercuts or hooks due to those punches not having any forward momentum; the momentum adds value to the punch.

When the jab or straight is coming, the counter-puncher throws their own straight while simultaneously performing a headslip. It is more difficult to perform the counter on a straight since the headslip cannot be performed. Ideally the user should loop their right arm over a left jab.

Miyata Ichirou tends to put his weight into the punch with a big step-in. He has even devised a version where he lunges forward. Sawamura Ryuuhei, on the other hand, does not step in, but intstead hits the opponent before their punch is fully in motion.

Strengths & WeaknessesEdit
