It's a multifarious technique. That's why when someone paws a jab the other guys meets it with his own fist, there's a very small window where it is punishable unlike looping punches or a power jab which is very close to a cross.
This is true but only to an extent. For it to be truly effective in that manner or with feints against a top notch striker you first have to gain their respect with jabs that cause damage. Of course there are exceptions to the rule, but more often than not pawing a jab against a talented striker is just asking to eat a counter right.

I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave. I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

Save lives and troll the internets on a daily basis? Don't mind if I do.
