If you like being the aggressor/ pressure fighter, make sure you give him too much pressure to handle, cut the ring off, don't let him breathe for second and when you come in, come with strong combinations. You must not have any hesitation in your technique for this style to work. You have to truly believe in your punches. Also, your fighting preference should be partly based on your personality style. Extrovert, most aggressive, introvert, more defensive.
Ahh I see, well my fighting style is a little of both. I'm faster than the guy and everytime he comes in he does throw the same thing *lead right hand, uppercut* but after that he runs, so maybe lure him in then corner him?
