i'd say you've only watched the quintana fight but when you say dumbsht like he "headhunts" im not even sure
when he did go to the body against quintana he had great results no doubt about that, but he still didnt go to the body enough. the amount of success he was having when he did go downstairs is all the more reason he should have done it more frequently.
just look at the first round, quintana was done from that livershot yet thurman didnt throw a single bodyshot as he was trying to finish him off. when he hurt him in the 4th it was the same thing. i didnt say he cant throw bodyshots well, just that he doesnt throw enough of them. he did spend most of the fight headhunting, count the amount of bodyshots compared to the amount of headshots thrown and you will see for yourself.
and he doesnt throw enough combinations either, its usually 2-3 big swings. a combination is more than just throwing one punch after another, its the idea that one punch sets up the next. by mixing up the speed, power and angle of your punches and putting them together you overwhelm your oponents defense. thurman basically throws single punches in quick sucession without any thought behind how they are put together, not what combination punching is about.
