When you jab, do so with more intention and retreat the arm as quick as possible. Keep the hand that isn't punching "on the phone". Don't narrow your stance when moving. Stand properly. You were "swimming" (like a crawling motion) when you threw more than one punch.
good points..i would say footwork as well....the kid/guy he was sparring was able to walk him into a corner...wasnt even reallly cutting off the ring...i would say mrtony needs to work his punches with his feet a bit more....
