The same punch... 180 times)
STAB AND STAB WITH THE POWERFUL JAB!
You’re a good dude..thanks brother.
Riddick Bowe wouldn’t even be on a top 5 jabber list of boxers from NYC.
What’s amazing me the most, is we get drilled and drilled for the jab hand to return to base after throwing, and yet it only happens maybe 3 or 4 times in this entire video. Almost every jab has the hand being dropped to the waist after the shot. I know, I know, these guys train hard to fight easy, but we are bombarded with the repercussions of what happens if you drop your hand off a jab, and these seasoned pros do it constantly against other seasoned pros. It is very interesting. What are your thoughts on this, Trav?
In any art form someone who is a technical master of the fundamentals can develop their personal style that seems to the beginner to break the fundamental rules of technique. A couple of reasons to drop the jabbing hand include baiting/drawing, changing the angle of your next lead hand punch, using a stonewall/philly shell defense, confidence in your shoulder roll and slips. Also, even the pros sometimes fail to condition properly and hanging on the head, neck and shoulders during the clinch can drain someones shoulder conditioning, so it might be energy conservation/exhaustion. Remember that the jab isn’t actually one punch but a category of of punches with multiple uses (range finding, disrupting opponents attack, distraction).
