Ike Quartey and His Bazooka Jab

Ike Quartey's Bazooka Jab

In my last entry, I mentioned the significance of video analysis in boxing. In the time since, I have received several emails from aspiring fighters looking for suggestions on boxers to study. For instance, I’ve had three people ask for examples of a properly thrown jab. With that in mind, I will use this entry to highlight one of my favorite examples of an effective jab. Ike “Bazooka” Quartey had one of the best jabs in recent history. Almost any young fighter will benefit by studying his brutally effective lead hand.
