He would just attack and there was no time to counter punch because he did not stop throwing punches. I stood there and blocked about 90% of them but was being overwhelmed. Before I got gased I would stay busy and hit him with an over hand right in the shoulder that would knock him back. This was keeping him at bay. What should I do when he attacks like that? Block and move out? Then wait till he gases?
Every time a guy punches he is open. It is a risk versus reward scenario so we have to punch. If a guy is overwhelming you, you have to time those openings.

I suggest watching Floyd Mayweather versus Jesus Chavez. Floyd maintained something like a 40 to 50 percent clip while reducing Chavez to landing 10 percent!

A good defence to fend off the offensive attack and well placed shots to score for yourself.

Punchoutput is matched and even surpassed by workrate!
