    The bull is doing it right. Notice the step with the lead leg and the weight shift while throwing the punch.

    Hit something, be happy.:boxing:
    Yeah, I got that, but Ali also knocked people out while moving backwards.

    Yeah, he did, but not with jabs. His ko punch was usually a right cross or an uppercut where he could catch someone bulling in.
