The thing about his right hand...This is why the timing is crucial, because he can't hit you with his right hand (in any meaningful way) until his left hand comes back. So you slip the jab as it is coming to you, not when it gets to you. And when you slip, you slip the length of the punch, not the end of it. If that makes any sense.
