Boxing Shoulder Roll - Defensive Technique

A boxing shoulder roll is a defensive technique where a fighter uses his shoulders to deflect an incoming punch. It is difficulty to completely block a fast incoming strike with your arms and hands. Therefore, some boxers use movement of their shoulders in order to minimize the power of an attacker's strike.

A boxing shoulder roll is not a shoulder block (where a boxer will feel the full power of the strike on his shoulder), rather it is a shoulder deflection. Floyd Mayweather, who was one of the boxing's greatest fighters, is well known for this technique.

This technique should not be confused with a "traditional" forward shoulder roll used by martial artists when they have been knocked or thrown to the ground. For other martial arts defensive techniques, please visit the main Martial Arts Blocks section.
