    That was most likely a typo. We use clench for fists and jaws.

    In this context it must be 'clenched', not 'clinched'.

    But note that being 'in a clinch' means being 'in a tight embrace'.

    It should be clenched which means to tighten a fist.

    clinch definition: 1. to finally get or win something: 2. to make someone decide what to do after a lot of thought or discussion.

    Wrong word (spelling). Zane CLENCHED his fists.

    Source(s): there is this old book called a dictionary.

    You mean "clenched." "Clinched" is a different word.

    I believe that's "clenched," not "clinched."

    It means to contract or tighten - as with a fist or jaw.

    Clinch means to secure decisively - like a championship or a business agreement.

    Tighten the fingers. The way you do when getting blood drawn.
