LEARN The most important punch in boxing

THE jab is the most important punch in boxing; it was one of my best assets as a fighter. In 106 fights, I only fought one person who had a better jab than me and that was World silver medallist Croatian Marijo Šivolija.

I remember one jab he threw and landed *booom* right on my forehead. I never expected it and throughout the fight, he landed quite a few more. They were fast, hard and very annoying!

This fight was in the semi-finals of the European Union Championships in Sardinia and I ended up losing by one point.
