Wednesday Word: Fisticuffs

fisticuffs

fist·i·cuffs
ˈfistiˌkəfs/
noun
plural noun: fisticuffs
  1. fighting with the fists.

I LOVE this word! You can certainly say many other common words in its place, like “it came to blows”, “they started fighting”, “he hit the other man”. However, nothing really captures the feel of the moment more than saying, “It finally came to fisticuffs!” See? Don’t you love this??
