Okay, Bush....

Seeing a pattern here? If not, think back to the last time two in-fighters jab it out in close quarters; shouldn't be that hard, right?

I try to throw the lead hook off feints after stepping around a bit so, unless I totally whiff it somehow, I can wrap them up if they block or slip it and I can hit them with a straight if it lands solidly.

Wait, Bush... you said right hands were distance punches, correct? Apparently, this guy needs distance via feinting with the jab or timing his opponents right hand in order to throw his lead left hook? Go figure, he needs space to pull off that particular punch... that can't be right, he needs to be under his opponents nose to throw a lead hook.

Bush, this guy, who actually gets in a boxing ring, clearly doesn't know what he's doing. He's using leg speed to justify closing the distance to throw a lead hook; this can't be right! I mean, he even goes on to name two of the top three p4p fighters who just so happen to have zero clue how to throw lead punches. Bush, school these kids on how to throw a lead hook.
