MacDonald’s jab was just as effective as Robbie’s was because he was winning the fight on the scorecards and in the cage for a majority of the fight because of the speed and accuracy of that jab. It was very similar to the jab used by Larry Holmes. So because of the height and reach of Rory just like Larry Holmes and for anyone really; he kept the jab literally in Robbie’s face he jabbed left it in his face moved and jabbed of that short amount of space that was between his hand and Robbies face. It caused damage and completely messed up Robbie’s timing and forced him to have to reset.
- How to throw this jab is very basic the elbow should be down and not chicken winging out.
- Then you extend through the target but instead of keeping you head on the center line you keeping it tucked and your chin down and sometimes even leaning it down into your chest.
- Then you keep your arm up and focused on pawing there lead hand and pawing at their face similar to Jon Jones.
Again this is only a variation on a tried and true technique that creates havoc, depending on the fighter and how you fight. Go and watch some Larry Holmes fights many the start of the Ali fight as sad as it was it is a example of a fast and persistent jab and pawing the opponents lead hand.
