Is your opponent using gloves with attached thumbs? How bout you try a mexican styled headgear (the ones with the oversized cheeks) and see if it gets better? Or you can get a nosebar?

This isn't a boxing headgear but it is well suited for hard sparring (its used in the hybrid form of kyokushin karate and judo):
