You moved and avoided his right, do the same. Keep your right hand home like you did last time, but, this time, block the hook!
Keep this in mind. Most guys that look for the hook tip it off; it is very rare, especially among guys early on, to find a guy slick at sneaking in his left hook. So it is very possible that he'll be dipping to his left, turning his body, or giving you other signs that his hook is coming. Drop a right hand on him when he does. When he does throw his hook, keep your right glove up, right elbow tight, roll inside it, and immediately come back with your own left hook.
