Default Slipping and rolling Jabs

I have always slipped a left handed jab to my right putting my on the outside then roll under it.

I watched some old Tyson videos and he sometimes slips in the other direction into his opponets right hand range. That does not make sense to me.

Do you always slip to the outside?

slipping to the outside is the safe, standard, textbook option.

slipping to the inside... you've got to be quick and know what you're doing.

you can slip to the inside while simultaneously throwing a straight right to the head over his jab, or to the body under his jab (like a right hook).

some real speedsters can slip to the inside and immediately let fly with a left hook or left uppercut.

back to slipping to the outside, a classic variant on the 'slip to the right and throw a straight right over his jab' thing, is slipping to the right and throwing the right uppercut to the head, under his jab. if you get the timing right on that bitch, good night!

as for rolling... i prefer to parry his jab and roll back with his straight right, especially if it's a not-especially-straight right (more of a clubbing shot), and then immediately 'roll back towards him' countering with a straight right / right hook of my own, plus a left hook. very James Toney.

Do you always slip to the outside?
No, you can also slip to the inside. Slipping to the outside is the safest, most efficent and most effective way. Slipping to the inside gives you new options and makes you a more versatile fighter.

If a fighter's throwing right hands right behind the jab, then you might consider not slipping to the inside.

But if you can make him reach with his jab, your inside slip and hook will be not as risky as he won't be set to throw a right.

If you can judge the small increments in distance and timing, you can roll a little bit back, slip the jab to the left, as the punch just passes over the top you can fire a straight right over it while its partially extended but not quite retracted. I dont know what you call it, but I term it 'encasing a punch' where the opponent's arm whiffs and ends up in the gap between your punching arm and your head.
