Jesse often paced himself out of a lot of wins due to his frequent 'short notice conditioning'. He would hold back a lot so as not to 'gas-out' during a contest, which in a few he did. Also, his arsenal was almost void of one of the best punches in boxing, the left hook, which was laid dormant by his right leaning style.
