How to Box: Jab to the Body

by Tom Reynolds on May 17, 2011

Love him or hate him, Floyd Mayweather is a beast when it comes to boxing. One of the biggest things that sets him apart is the fact that he rarely get’s hit with solid punches compared to his opponents.  He always seems to be one step ahead, and tends to keep the other boxers off of their rhythm. After watching most of his fights, it’s clear that his ability to jab to the body so well is one of the main reasons he can do those things.

Jab to the Body

Pay careful attention to how Mayweather lunges in with the jab to the body and as soon as his weight shifts forward, he is already lunging back out of range.
