foot, a fatal mistake. In his turn, stepping forward with the right foot opens up his centerline. Once he steps forward with his right foot and pivots to swing at Arthur, he is knocked out. It is possible for Jimenez in the same sequence to step forward with the right foot, but the key is to stay low and whip the left foot around at a 90 degree angle so you emerge in a right-forward stance oriented toward the opponent. Jimenez might even have survived if he had stepped with the right and thrown the more economical left hook, but he stepped with the right (which opened him up) turned into his opponent, and then tried to throw the more distant right hand. Jimenez’s pivot and torque to throw the right hand merely funnels all that force into the path of Arthur’s punch. The crucial lesson is that your evasive maneuver isn’t enough; you must also recover safely and reorient yourself.
