Good catch. A counter like that is harder to pull off when you pump out the jab in 2's and 3's and circle, but Mikey throws a lot of single ones. And like you said, feinting is a great way to keep Salido at bay. But I think Mikey also lacks feints as well. He just seems so poker-faced and conservative and would rather spy for clean openings for his powers shots than take risks making them appear. Like I said, such a contrast to the sparring clip against Rios.
