Jersey Joe Walcott's Perfect Timing Explained - Broken Rhythm Footwork & Head Movement Breakdown
http://www.modernmartialartist.com/downloads/footwork-wins-fights/ Well before Muhammad Ali astonished spectators by dancing around the ring like a lightweight, there was another heavyweight who’s mastery of footwork seemed to defy gravity. That man was heavyweight champion Jersey Joe Walcott.
Walcott fought with his hands low, content to leave his head a wide open target to some of the heaviest hitters in the history of combat sports.
Crafty and creative, Walcott used a multitude of feints, draws, and rhythm manipulations to set traps and lead opponents into his punches. Recently his distinctive side steps, slips and counters have seen a resurgence among a few gifted modern fighters.
