“As you may have observed, he had a unique way of moving, constantly evading his opponents’ attacks,” commented Jeffries.

“Reason #1: Maintain his opponent’s uncertainty. It’s evident that remaining stationary in the boxing ring is not a winning approach. However, Tyson’s distinctive side-to-side movement, almost resembling a graceful sway, set him apart from other fighters of his time.

“When he moved in this manner, he transformed into a mobile target, making it more challenging for his opponent to successfully execute and land punches,” explained Jeffries.

“Reason #2: Dodging punches. Additionally, Tyson demonstrated an extraordinary skill in evading his opponents’ strikes. In an instant, he could rely on his lightning-fast reflexes to swiftly maneuver away from incoming punches.”

“Reason #3: Power distribution. Now we delve into the most significant observation.

“While evading punches, Tyson effectively shifted his weight to the opposite foot,” explained Jeffries. “By transferring the weight to my front foot, for example, I could generate substantial force for a powerful left hook, utilizing the full weight behind the punch.”
