term used in boxing to describe something that has a slight chance of happening
I thought i had a puncher's chance of going out with her even though she's the hottest girl in school.
A term used in MMA (mixed martial arts) meaning that a puncher always has a chance to win the fight by landing even one punch.
Ross is a boxer so he always has a puncher's chance.
Some of this is myth and exaggeration. I watch all combat sports, kickboxing, MMA, boxing, K-1 everything, and i also watch the real Muay Thai fights from Thailand although not on TV.more...
The guy who said "I saw some Muay Thai practitioner kill a guy with his bare hands."
Man that's just stupid. A MT fighter has no more chance of killing a guy with his bare hands than a boxer. Of course if a guy is unconscious you can beat him to death. From a guy who actually WATCHES guys like Dekkers, Kiatmontep and Buakaw(although he's basically K-1 now) they are weak punchers in comparison to professional boxers. I have not seen one MT fighter who hits like Rafael Marquez, Trinidad or any other top hard-hitting pro boxer. Their kicks are extremely powerful, they knee and elbow, but they have no real huge punchers.
Plus, it's nowhere near as brutal as you guys keep saying. I've yet to see a fight as brutal as Gatti-Ward or Corrales-Castillo in MT. Most of the fights consist of, just like boxing, the two fighters looking at each other waiting for openings, tapping their lead foot off the floor ready to block leg kicks. There are far fewer cleanly landed strikes to the head, in fact in the vast majority of fights i've seen they are sparse. Just because they knee and elbow and shin kick doesn't immediately make the fights all wars. It's mostly exchanging leg kicks. I have to admit i've trained in MT and leg kicks are actually far more painful than a punch to the nose, but this still d...
A word to describe those people that LOVE stationery. It is a portmanteau of 'pen' and 'enthusiast'. It is a pretty self-explanatory term: an enthusiast is person who is highly interested in a particular activity or subject and in the case of a penthusiast the subject is pens. And all their 'cousins'. (i.e. highlighters, erasers, hole-punchers, etc.)
Such people would move into an Officeworks store in the blink of an eye if given the chance.
Abby: So what are you getting Ursula for her birthday?
Mavis: I got Ursula this massive box of Crayola Crayons and some Derwent charcoal pencils.
Abby: ... Will she like those?
Mavis: Oh yeah! She's a total penthusiast. She could live in Officeworks! If you want her to fall in love with you forget sending chocolates and roses, send her post-its and blu-tac.
