Thumbs down surprised people are getting caught by garica left hook

Obviously he has a lot of power in that punch but it comes slow as molasses and very wide/extended . Seriously you can see him winding up to throw it a mile away, how do you not counter such a re****ed punch? I think one of these days he faces a decent opponent we are going to get an epic counter punch K.O, maybe somebody with a tighter left hook.

It can be countered. The problem is he can take your best shots and he keeps coming. He has excellent body shots which will slow you down. Sooner or later you are going to eat that "re****ed" left hook and end up looking re****ed like Khan.

He throws it whilst his opponents are throwing.

They're eating it on purpose because they can't get enough of it, it's to crispy. Garcia vs Mayweather = a bucket of KFC
crispy chicken wings.

He usually feints first or punches with an opponent so it comes out right when they drop their hand. It also comes from down low so their peripheries don't really catch it. I want to see who can try and nullify it, because without it, I'm not sure what else he's got besides a decent counter-right.

OP has a point about tighter hooks. Counter the counter. Bait him into thinking he's countering you and slip a tighter hook inside of his. Easier said then done.

Like everyone else said: He throws it at exactly the right time, when his opponent is concentrating on something else.

true, a fighter might be able to see it coming before it comes, from Garcia's body language. - but that takes a VERY skilled opponent. Someone like Floyd. Very few fighters have that kind of "sixth sense" in the ring, no matter how easy the OP thinks it would be.

Why is it that everyone looks for the negative stuff in this kid instead of highlighting is great intangibles....this more like a revelation exposing esb's mindset.

Who has a good straight right hand to negate it? possibly Mathysse?
