Default Re: General strategic advice guide

I liked how PBF broke down Judah. He took away the straight left by closing the gap on him. In order to do that he had to take away Judah's jab. He did that by agressively countering every time Judah threw it (charging in with the left over the top). Eventually Judah stopped throwing the jab and Mayweather was able to focus on Zab's left. One of Judah's flaws is that doesn't follow up his straight left with a right hook. He uses his right hook as a counterpunch only.

So Floyd took away Judah's jab, then he shifted his focus to the left hand, closed the gap, and dominated the fight on the inside which is where he is at his best and where the southpaw style is not as pronounced.

Marquez took away Pac's left for large periods of the fight with his footwork. Moving backwards and towards Pacquiao's right
