    Boxing match

    In a boxing match broadcast over the radio I hear a word that sounds like "heynecker" or "hayenicker". I've looked up the web page titleboxing.com that contains a huge boxing vocabulary, but I haven't found any word similar to that. What could it be?

    This is what the radio announcer says: "Carney throws a right ******, Angelo sidesteps and drops a left to the head. Carney lands a swinging right uppercut to Angelo's jaw."

    I include the audio of the short broadcast.

    A haymaker is a type of punch- a wild swing.
