Its all about getting your distance right, too far away you expose your self, too close you smother the shots.
Practis throwing a 1-2 then stepping in and landing a left hook to the body till you get it perfect. The distance will be intinctive and you can mix up the body shots now.
I try and get round the side of the guard plant my feet then bang the body. For defence i normally just lean on them as that smothers their work. Then step back when i want to punch the body.
