Your video shows that it was Manny's right hand either the hook or a jab , not the left hand, which tagged Cotto everytime the Puerto Rican lowers his left guard or attempts to jab. In one sequence, Cotto attempted a blocking motion with his left hand as Manny feinted with a right jab.
Round 1 - 0:22 Manny slips in a jab over Cotto's left hand
0:30 Manny fires a right hook over Cotto's left hand
And this is just in the initial stages of the fight.
There are numerous sequences which show Manny firing the right or faking the right hand. If anything it isn't the left which dissuades or makes Cotto hesitate to fire the jab, it's the right hand because as soon as Cotto fires the left jab, it leaves him open for the right hand over the jab.
Check your video again. The left hand is thrown thru the middle not Cotto's left or right side.
You got it all wrong kuya...
Round 1 - 0:29 meaning the last 29secs of round 1, not the first 29secs of the video....
here, watch it againhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08kUTlcjCfU
Round 1 - 0:29
Round 2 - 2:00, 1:58, 1:46
Round 3 - 2:29, 1:50, 1:17
Im talking about the "round time" not the time in the video
Here are the example pics of Pac doing that punch.
The left lead from a southpaw would travel a longer distance than the jab from an orthodox fighter.
Only if a southpaw didnt position his head outside of the jabber....
Ei, Ive been seeing you guys posting a lot here in new pacland so i thought you guys know this basic boxing im talking about.
And where does the left hand go thru? Right in the middle. Not the left or right side. The orthodox jabber exposes his left side. And this is basic.
You talk of basic. Here's basic.
Parrying & Countering
As a southpaw, it’s easiest to parry your opponent’s jab with your right hand. Simply tap the outside of his wrist as the jab approaches your face. Parrying his jab inward gives you outside position on your opponent, assuming your lead foot remains outside of his lead foot. Outside positioning allows you to work the left side of your opponent’s body with relative ease.
After you parry his jab, counter by throwing a jab of your own. In most cases you will be able to jab his head while his arm is coming back. Your movements must be quick, though, in order for this tactic to be successful. As always, double or triple jab combinations are effective point scorers as long as you get your hand back quickly in anticipation of his counter.
Other options stemming from the parry, jab sequence are the jab, straight left (1-2) and jab, straight left, and right hook (1-2-3) combinations. These combinations work especially well when you perform them in the following sequence:
So the southpaw throws his own RIGHT JAB as the orthodox's fighter arm is coming back. Review your video again and see how Cotto exposes his left side as soon as he throws the jab and how Manny counters with his own right hand.
Kuya, your example is just one of the choices you can do/use to utilize orthodox jab if your a southpaw..
But i would pick left straight/cross(dont ask me again about that cross and straight thing, i explained that to you before already) to counter orthodox jabs coz its more devastating at pogi tingnan, astig ang dating
