- Counter punch your opponents after blocking or dodging his punches. A counter punch is often the most effective, powerful punch.
- Throw your punches wisely. A non-stop barrage of punches drains your energy and makes you less effective, strong and quick.
- If you are losing when exchanging punches, pull back some. Regain your strength and poise, and then engage again.
- Mix up your punches and you will hit your target more often. Switch it up between head and body punches, and left and right- handed punches.

- Hold down the R1 Button and move the right analog stick to block incoming punches and create openings for counterpunches.
- Keep your defenses up at all times. The best offense is a solid defense.
- Blocking and dodging your opponent's attacks will tire him out. By tiring out your opponent through leans, blocks and dodges, you can wait til he's weaker and then go in for the kill.
- Moving opponents are difficult to hit. Keep on the move to avoid your opponent's attacks and to find new openings.
