    could illustrate, I mean name a fighter old timer and fight or better, if have time, post some animation ...
    By description, I 'd imagine something like spear jab or long uppercut

    Looks like Quartey's jab wasn't THAT successful in this fight despite the final result.
    Was it due to a distance that was too close or due to the tempo that was too high ? Anything else ?

    Vince Phillips was a Hell of a fighter, and vastly underrated Historically.

    Do you see anything specific that makes it difficult for Quartey to be dominant with his jab here ?

    First things first is Vince was catching Ike's jab, and establishing a false target. Ike wasn't used to not landing his jab. Vince was also changing levels to jab to the body under Ike's jab. Ike's answer was incorrect, to jab DOWNWARD, with no leverage. Vince was also pressuring Ike in the first round, Ike wasn't used to being the bullIED. He was used to being the bullY.

    Basically Vince did everything he could to get Ike jabbing at the wrong targets, at the wrong times, and from the wrong distance.

    About the pressure/distance/volume - I also paid attention to it.

    What do you mean by a false target ? Also what do you think Ike should have done to deal with the body jab better ?

    When you jab at the glove instead of the face. There's a few answers to body jabs, you can catch it with the right elbow and counter with a low hook (as if to the body)...you can side-step, you can pull your hips back for a second then step in with a counter, or you can pivot to get an angle to attack WHILE they recover.

    reading this reminds me how little i know of boxing, great stuff though. i have only recently discovered how ordinary my jab actually is. no variation and always full power. i'm trying to improve it but speed isn't exactly a strong suit of mine and i have throw it in a really basic manner for way to long.
