    I thought Sturm's jabwork was solid but I never thought he actually dominated that fight. Probably deserve the "W" but it wasn't nearly as one-sided as some people make it out to be. Some tough rounds where Oscar landed the more impressive combinations and possibly the harder punches.

    By the way, it's interesting that with maybe a handful of exceptions, virtually all of the top "jabbing clinics" that come to mind happened in the past few decades. Seems to suggest that boxing technique and strategy evolved in the second half of the twentieth century...

    Vernon Forest against Shane Mosley the first fight. The jab confused Shane and negated Mosley speed. The right hand of Vernon Forrest produced the knockdowns but it was the jab that controlled the bout.

    Ali vs Jerry Quarry in both fights. That was the fastest jab in heavyweight history.

    True. The fights we see live get burned into our memory. For example I'll never forget the night I watched the feared Simon Brown get his ears boxed off by Buddy Mcgirt the jab was part of that but he did a lot more than just jab that's why I didn't mention it. When you see something live at the guys more of an impact

    Mosley got hurt early and couldn’t fight his way back in because of Forrest’s jab. He was on point with the basics in that one.

    Harada vs Kingpetch 1 and Harada vs Jofre 1. Hell, nearly any Harada bout. Best jab in the Flyweight and Batamweight division (in addition with Kingpetch himself).
