Then Louis is dropped, as Wlad hits very hard.

What next?
Louis's pawing and general "laziness" on his jab was nothing compared to Wlad, however. Even allowing for a "blinding" jab, it's still pretty bad:

BORKED

His jab hand is extended too far, he often doesn't retract it rapidly enough, and paws with it extremely frequently. Yet, despite its incorrectness and unorthodoxy (and it IS incorrect), he somehow makes it work. The same applies to many "old time" fighters.
