I told him: don't lift your arm like that: if you do, I will know what your'e going to do, that's "un colpo telefonato" - I don't know if in Anglo-Saxon boxing jargon you have this Italian term: telefonato.
It translates: "(tele)phoned". The meaning is that if I can foresee what you're throwing at me, it's as if you were lifting a phone and calling me first to let me know what's coming
In English the word used for that is "telegraphed".
