Use mouse buttons or the keyboard. The left-right arrow keyboard keys to dodge and the A and D keys to punch using the left or right fist.

The strategy I used to win against the Wally glassjaw puddlesniffer, Bill the second opponent of Betty and Jimmy Two-teeth is to just dodge and hit him when he gets open when he raises his arm to punch. When the announcer says to finish him off, continue hitting and the opponent will lose.

Take horseman of war.
