    First of all if you are asking for tips in terms of training in future, post it on the boxing training forum, anyway the only two things I can say is turn your feet into the punch and if you jab, dont always step in too much and don’t lean in when throwing the back hand also, the jab is ALWAYS the most important punch, you jab see how the opponent reacts and throw the right punches to what position he is in, before you ever spar, make sure you always have a solid balance especially when you punch

    Just what I was thinking: he needs more power in the jab.

    Nothing better and more useful than a good jab, especially when you change the speed of it, it throws off the opponent but that is advanced and best to practice when they have sparred a lot but it is good to have a solid jab to begin with and then when you have got it decent, then work on the advanced techniques

    That's why Pinklon Thomas was probably my favorite model for how to jab. There were many other great jabbers, but I liked Thomas' because it was powerful and had good form, but it was not fast. A fast jab is good, but having an effective jab, like Thomas had, rather than a fast one, should be the primary thing. Also what makes Liston and Foreman's jabs so great. Power and effectiveness without speed.

    Yeah and a few other examples Kovalev, Pulev, even Bruno if you see the Lewis fight and as short fighters go, Qawi and Canelo use the jab effectively, but it is mainly to set up other punches for them 2

    @George Crowcroft would be good for this discussion. He works the heavy bag all the time.

    hey m8 welcome to forum!

    there is no head movement. add head movement to your punching combinations, slips and crouches.. you would be easily counter punched if you box like this. I know its a bag, and it doesn't punch back, just because of that it is easy to make bad habits. Cheers!
