The first thing is to step away at angles- step around, really, more than 'away.' This gets you out of his range- you surround his arms rather than stepping out of reach. This gives you punching angles while he has to turn to get at you. If you step back, he steps in and hits you when you eventually hit the ropes or a corner.
The right hand is an ok counter, but it leaves you in a spot to be countered. You "fall in' with a right hand, if that makes sense. Look for the left hook, a nice tight punch and you end up behind your left shoulder. The right uppercut, thrown properly, is a good shot as well. Get behind your left shoulder and bring it up.
Learn how to act inside. Get your body turned a whole bunch, get your left shoulder into his chest. He can't land a right on you from there, and you can get a grip on his left elbow with your right glove and then turn him to get out.
Thanks Grey! This advice is fantastic and very well explained, I will definatly be incorporating it into my next session
