Good first fight. Looked great for someone who had only been sparring 4 months.
If you don't mind my asking - who won?
Dunno if that's a typo but ive only been sparring 4 weeks not months I've had about 10 sparring sessions before that fight. He won btw, probably outworked me and hit me with the cleaner shots (although the ring post is in the way for most of time where he was hitting me so doesn't look as bad!)

You're right when you say I needed an overhand right, but it's not a shot I've thrown very often and wasn't sure of it landing. It's definitely something I'm gonna develop as it would have helped loads in that fight and would probably have stopped coming in so aggressively.

You get yourself into trouble when you cover up and let him punch. He gets brave because nothing is coming back, and you get hit with shots that you shouldn't, most likely because you didn't see them coming because you had your self blinded. Had you been able to see, you'd have seen a guy with his chin in the air, his feet parallel just waiting to get clocked. What was happening was, you didn't know how to close the distance, so you'd try a couple times, then stop and wait on him. He'd start punching and you'd square up and cover-up. Let me make a few suggestions.
If you don't know how, at this point, to get to taller, longer guys, make them come to you. What I would do, would be to get very sideways to your opponent, as far as your stance, give him nothing but your left shoulder. Get low, your weight well over your right leg, move forward slowly, but always shading to your right. You want to get around his lead (left) foot. This will get you into punching range in one of several ways.
First, you are low and jabbing to his body under his jab (your head outside his left arm) and stepping forward, he steps straight back. Back him to the ropes or into a corner, slide to your right, throw your right and a left hook. You are up close and punching from an angle, outside his lead arm, where he can't hit you.
Second, you're coming forward as described above. Now, he sees he has a bad angle. To get a better one, he has to take a large step to his left, then a large pivot in the same direction. This takes him directly into your right hand, right in front of you and right into range.
Third, you are coming forward as described above, and he can get a little bit with his jab, maybe the top of your head. He doesn't realize how bad his angle is and throws a right hand. Now if you are sideways to him, weight back and low, shading always to your right so that your head is outside his left arm, he has got to reach across his body with to throw his right hand. You take that last bit of a pivot to your right, just a hair, as he punches, and he's right there for a right hand.
It is a lot to read but, broken down, there is only one move to master. Pivot right and throw a right. That and being patient, moving slowly, like you have a plan, and making him wonder what he should do.

greynotsoold offered some sound advice.
You seemed a bit eager, he was able to walk you onto punches as a result.
All the tall guy had was a right hand, circle away from it, not into it, and jab to the body.
When he was standing still, like he was far too often, you had the opportunity to dictate when, and from what angle to engage, don't just move right towards him.
Last thing was, try to feint to draw his right hand, and throw your own over the top of it.

That said, your technique was better, you'll be able to take guys like that apart before long.

You did well. You were a tad tight, alot of anxious movement. That opponent did look like a proper beanstalk!

Everytime you hit him, you should have pressed forward and stayed in his chest. He can't hit up there with those long arms of his. There, you should have just laid into that body. Several times you hit him, and then you just stood there or you would take a step back.

Keep it up!

IMO,as long as you don't get knocked out or stoppage in your first fight you win.

Greystoold - good advice. Possibly need to practise in the gym a few times first as I was just keeping to the basics ie hands up, pop the jab out and basic combos. It's weird as it seemed like I lost a bit of my boxing memory due to all the build up/tension before as I'm usually am a little less predictable than the 1-2 left hook combo I seem to throw a lot.

Psyenz - I think it's lack of ring experience that I hadn't even considered doing those things! I've not had a lot of ring time but hopefully will start working on stuff like that. I will be in my next sparring session and am trying to develop a decent overhand right for opponents like that

Longjab - yea, I should have pressed more and be more aggressive and that's something I'm going to work on, but tbh I thought I was getting hammered in the ring when I seemed to be doing ok. I was getting tired as well and was trying to get past his left arm which he kept putting out which stopped me coming forward a bit.

Captain hook & hernaday - cheers fellas!
