Re: Jab. Circle away from the power hand. Jab. Why is that so hard, DeMarco?
DeMarco definitely fought the wrong fight, but Broner was timing him so well down the pipe and pawing down his jab that he probably saw no other way than go for broke on the inside. I recognized before the fight that PDL created opportunities with feints and an odd rhythm, whereas DeMarco hesitates to throw unless the opportunities are ones he already sees and his right hand is leading first. Once that jab was neutralized and Broner was blocking his straight punches, he decided to try his luck inside, but was far too selective.
