    Nice shot,But that was a right cross wasnt it?
    Any good videos that demonstrate a textbook jab?

    no it was a right hook if your crosses look anything like that there is like 80% wasted movement in your technique

    What Happens is, Dunstan throws a jab and Hits Him on the glove in good posture. Gurov thinks He is in distance and reaches with His Wrong . A jab can be used so many ways, its how its interpretated.

    I think i understand it now scrap,when i thought i wasn't jabbing to the centre before i think i actually was,it was after watching that charley burley video that i realized that my head sits off centre when im standing in my boxing stance infront of the mirror.Is this a natural thing for a right hander to do as i didn't even realize i was doing it till i seen that.

    Like everything its styles, Gurov has a habit of protecting His chin with that technique. It has flaws as regarding judgeing distance by pushing the shoulder and taking the Head with it, coming of your backfoot, your distance at all times.I was surprised it worked 1st time. He forgot his feet and had knowhere to go.

    Actually from what i understand even a right hook can be classed as a right cross.I think the term right cross came from describing a counter to the jab.Although in the video it was a soutpaw jab so im not sure if that would still qualify.

    From what i remember of the video it was a right hook not used as a counter over the top of the jab, so didnt quite qualify as a right cross for me but it was a while ago i watched the video maybe im wrong

    Always remember - the jab is a multi-purpose tool - sometimes the correct jab for the job doesn't fit the perfect text book suggested method.

    Two extremes - Muhammed Ali's fast snapping jab that blinds the foe, and
    Sonny Liston's booming power straight left like a 2X4 crashing into your face.
    BALANCE, LEVERAGE, ACCURACY, SPEED and TIMING - Effective punching.
