    Really? Maybe the one with the 5,000 jabs?

    ))Smart ass. I just watched 74. I think one of the last takedowns GSP doesn't even wait as soon as the left is moving he takes him down.

    many top level boxers have made a career out of this, but eating a slap to land a takedown is a fair trade.
    This doesn't make for a long career, however. As Willie Pep once said, "First your legs go. Then you lose your reflexes. Then you lose your friends."

    A perfect example of this would be Paulie Malignaggi. He's always flicking his jab. At 30-years-old, he's already on the downslide of his career.

    I hadn't even thought of the counter example. In the more recent fight GSP jabs Koschecks face into ground beef. There is no "flicking" going on.

    True, and Pep was a legend.
    Without a derail, I would say guys like Malignaggi, Michael Olajide, Calvin Grove (Olajide and Grove were the two guys I was thinking of) all made a pretty damned decent career and reached some of the highest ranks of boxing, considering they couldn't punch their way through a wet tissue.
