I was watching the Mayweather/Judah fight last night, and I noticed something VERY unorthodox.
Zab is fighting southpaw, and Mayweather is fighting orthodox. So far so good.
Zab is out-timing Mayweather in the first 5 rounds.
Around the 6th round Mayweather started getting his rhythm, throwing low crosses to Zab's body.
But Mayweather was doing something I've NEVER seen before in a boxing match.
Mayweather would jab, and Zab would shield. Mayweather would LEAVE his jabbing hand on Zab's shielding arm, then throw the low cross!
I couldn't believe what I was seeing. First of all, I thought it was bad boxing. But Mayweather kept nailing Zab over and over again with the low cross to the body. I thought "why the heck doesn't Zab just throw a lead hook?"
Well, he couldn't because his arm was TRAPPED. Yep, I said it. Mayweather had trapped Floyd's lead arm with his lead jab. It looked weird, since Mayweather was basically leaving both arms out there, but there it was.
The technique was very unorthodox, but he trapped the arm nonetheless.
I can't wait for the first clueless moron to jump on here and say "so you're saying Mayweather trains wing chun?"
