"The Hitman"
Photoshop CS6
(Accidentally made this way too small. Oh, well. First in the line of a possible series highlighting the different boxing stances and the fighters who popularized them.)
The focus of this piece is one of my favorite boxers and stances. Known as the philly shell, and popularized as the “hitman stance” by Thomas “The Hitman” Hearns, it is a highly offensive stance in which the user hangs their lead hand by their waist with their rear hand cocked by the users chin.
This stance is a favorite among tall, rangy fighters, most notably Thomas Hearns, a fighter known for his use of the hitman stance, his height, and his powerful right hand punch. Many fighters feared Hearns because of his aggressive, stalking style and his devastating punching power, making him one of boxing’s most avoided men to date.
