    When 2 people "circle each other"

    What is meant by the idiomatic expression of two people "circling each other"?

    See the boxers below? They're not going toward each other. They're not moving away. They're moving around, facing each other, gloves up, looking for an opening.

    They're circling each other.

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
