    Are you referring to getting your face shoved with the palm when in the clinch? You've gotta swim your way out of it, anticipate and use your forearm to push the arm away from your face and bring your head down and in.

    If i know someone likes using a stiff arm (especially with a particular hard) ill bait the stiff arm then just whip an overhand around it. The intent with the stiff arm is too hold someone at length, to do this you must hold your arm out there. As a fighter i know you know that if a hand is out attacking then it isnt by the head protecting ;) as my dad use to say when it came to fighting "fill the holes" i take it a step further and create the holes to fill

    how about just moving your head out of the way? although you would probably need to cut an angle immediately after or counter strike asap.

    Klitschko likes the "stiffarm" (illegal in boxing but so is holding floyd)
    Joshua did a good job of dealing with it in the fight
