Any advice is GREATLY APPRIECITED THANX
Sounds like you are a pure boxer. Especially if the shot landed and you can understand why the shot landed... Invite the same shot. This time though, because you know it is coming, counter VICIOUSLY. IMHO as a Pure Boxer you should make a point to seriously make a guy pay for shots that catch you, you are vulnerable against, or are his bread and butter.
If he has a great lead hook? Invite it and light him up for it. Comes in low? Tiger upper cut his ass. Likes to square up and dig to the body? Take a false step back and drive a harpoon straight right at his chin/neck/collarbone.
Every time that mofo thinks about his best punch make him think about your counter.
