    I don't know how to word it any other way. One example Corbett liked to look at the stomach and shoot to the jaw. One I really liked was Benitez's he used to "bop" constantly in a fight even when he was static regardless if he did or did not jab to disguise the punch and keep them flinching and thinking. Canelo liked to inch his lead foot and keep his right static to see what they did and advance while also leaving a lot of room to pull back if he needed. Watch the Kova or Jacobs fight to see it.

    A quote I liked of Cus's about Benitez. "His defence isn't getting any better he needs to learn to punch" This was in the lead up to Hamsho.

    Well, Roy Jones putting all his weight on his rear leg with rear hand up and lead hand down, meaning as soon as transferred weight towards the lead leg he almost automatically left-hooked with a leap at a moments notice

    I like the idea of punching (sneaking a jab) in a "relaxed" posture, Canelo does it well. Roy Jones was great at jabbing high then jabbing low, then he would jab high, change levels and come up with the left hook.

    Guess I'm gonna be the third guy to mention Roy Jones. His weird counter overhand left hook over the jab of a southpaw.

    Jones also had that potshot lead right where he would slide out to his left after it.

    Since this is now the official Jones Appreciation thread, I would like to mention his ability to throw 4-5 left hooks in a row.

    The punch to the balls follow by a left hook to the jaw by Jack Dempsey. Best combo ever.

    Speaking of Jack. One of his better tactics I liked was when he was finishing Willard he threw from a low angle knowing Jess wouldn’t be able to tell which hand was coming for the final flurry.

    Golota brought this technique into the modern era.

    I always really liked old school bobbing and weaving à la Joe Frazier or Bennie Briscoe. Pretty much nobody does it like that or at all it seems like.

    The most "modern" guy I can think of that did this is Qawi. I'm sure I'm forgetting someone because that can't be right.

    The corkscrew jab thrown by Ricky Hatton while leaping in at the same time to close distance, as soon as they're head snapped back he was inside mauling the heck outta them!
