Counter Technique #1

Jab Slip and Left Uppercut





1) As the opponent throws his jab, sidestep forward while angling to your left

2) Outside slip his punch and throw the uppercut to his jaw

3) It is best to follow up with a straight right

Very good against fighters that has a high guard and can't be hit by straight forward punches. This counter heavily relies on reflexes and intuition. If you're quick and your opponent throws a lazy or overcommitted jab, it will be much easier to pull off.

In the video, Marquez already knew that when he rushes in, Jandaeng throws a defensive jab at him. So JMM executed this counter to neutralize the Thai's jab. Keep in mind that Juan Manuel, is already a move ahead in this exchange because of his ring intelligence and keen intuition. Let me emphasize that Marquez executed this counter move perfectly.

How to improve this technique:
  • Flow Drills
  • Focus Mitts
  • Constant Sparring

note: This is against a southpaw can be done against the right straight of orthodox fighters.
