From Oliver at Beatipoli, who used my favorite song for this.
The thing to remember about Rocky Lockridge from a small glove or bareknuckle perspective is that his money punch, that overhand right is for the chin only and should only be used on tall men. This punch will break your hand faster than any. However, if you have the shoulders that this little fireplug brought into the ring a generation ago, this could be an open-handed blow to the forehead.
Rocky cycled his lead low, which was fine because he jabbed to the chest.
Jabbing to the chest and then right hooking to the ribs and kidney under his man's jab was really cutch for Lockridge. His style fit the short frame well and was in many ways a throwback to methods of the early gloved boxers.
