I'm having trouble with some of the earlier missions that involve fist fighting, I can't seem to get a single hit. What am I doing wrong?

Do people ever read manuals or pay attention to the game tutorials?

That's nice and helpful. You need to hold l2 down to fight.

You may be having trouble because you are hittin X repeatedly. Try using SQUARE to doge an enemy punch, then press X for a nice hit. I only punch in couter-attacks, it makes the fights much easier.

This is what most people miss out on.. holding down L2.

TC obviously knew to hold down L2, as the topic stated he could not get a single "hit." Meaning, he was able to throw punches, but unable to get them to land.

I think you're over-analyzing this.

And dodging (square btn) makes sense since you get a trophy if Phelps don't loose his hat during a fight.
