The short answer is "move your head."

The long answer is "move your head and keep your hands up."

If you get frustrated by a jab (which is usually what happen, since people don't, generally speaking, get serious hurt by the jab) then take a second, pull your hands back up, and work around it.

If you act like Chris Leben, you're going to keep eating that jab. If you can't take a punch like Chris Leben, that jab's going to hurt you pretty badly after a while.

Believe it or not there is one other thing that might help along with what everyone is saying about keeping your hands up and moving your head.

More often than not if you don't train all the time you close your eyes a lot during a fight. Work on keeping your eyes open and on his upper shoulder area. You can usually tell when a punch or jab is about to be thrown. Then you can move your head accordingly. Most of the time you don't even realize how often you are closing your eyes for those split seconds but that is all it takes.

Good luck my friend.

If you throw a three punch combo off a counter you're going to eat a lot of right hands and he is going move away before you can finish. I like the jab, but I use it as a means of distance or setting up my own combos. When I use it for distance and you counter I am going to throw a wide right hook while protecting and tucking my head against my left arm while moving away. And I drop a ton of guys this way. In my opinion your counters should be short and sweet.

Wow, I really want to respond to this in depth but I'm at work so I can't go into it. Maybe I'll have to put up another little post on Jabbing and countering the jab.

My paltry input for now is to keep your hands up and move! Move your head to make it harder to hit. Move your feet to get you into countering range (or out of his range). Finally, move your hands and give him something to think about so that he can't just fire the jab indiscriminately.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

As he throws his jab, let your weaker arm move the jab downwards as you make a quick blow to his face with your stronger hand. Then again this dosent always work but keep at it work on your agility

Basically a triple somersault drop kick usually does the trick.

2) Fedor Emelianenko
3) Chuck Liddell
4) Forrest Griffin
5) Tyson Griffin

well not everyone can do that right, i mean what you just said would devastate but this guy is better off working the basics, a counter to hisjab would really disorient him while you could move in for a knee or a takedown

To avoid being jabbed you have to know your distance from your opponent. If you don't know his reach after being hit once, then you shouldn't have continued with the fight.

When the opponent leans back, they are unable to attack. Normally I would kick the opponent's leg but since you are boxing I'd go for a body shot.
