Default Re: Kubrat Pulev's professional career

Pulev’s jab, which is perhaps the best jab in the entire heavyweight division, is like a power punch. It’s not obviously in the same league a big power shot from the likes of Wladimir, Haye or Stiverne, but it’s still like a decent power shot. When Pulev hits you with that shot it does damage, but what makes Pulev so good is he’s able to jab his opponents over and over again without tiring from the process.

If you compare Pulev to Wladimir in the jabbing department, Wladimir comes out ahead in terms of power on his jabs. However, Wladimir quickly tires when he throws his jabs and he can only jab a small amount of times in each round. He’s not able to jab over and over like Pulev. That’s the difference. Pulev is a lot more consistent. He doesn’t get hit because he uses his height and reach to control his shorter opponents by keeping them on the outside where they can’t land.
