Re: My first Boxing Match
You two were fighting in straight lines and boxing is a game of circles. Also, this guy you were fighting was one-handed, everything was with the left hand.
So you can fight him one of two ways. You can circle to your left, stepping around his lead foot, use you height and reach advantage to jab him over his shoulder and try to get him to turn into a right hand. This will take his left hand away from him.
Or you can move into his left hand, get him to throw it, which he seems willing enough to do. Draw the his left and tear him up with left hook counters; you seemed in spots to be doing something like this, but with your left jab. You really need to develope a good, short left hook to make this work. Though you can also get under his left and really work the right uppercut, but even then you'd need to follow it with a hook.
