Arm punches, not turning the hips with the punches?

At this point I fall under the category of noob who thinks he is Roy Jones haha.
You'll know it when you see it. Literally looks like they're a slow rockem sockem robot. Just kind of pumping out jabs and crosses with no real force behind them.

It's similar to throwing a normal punch, but it's not done with any real violence, speed, or snap, it's just sort of shoving your hand into their face.

Getting emotional.
Not keeping the hands up.
Not being in shape.
Not enough jabbing.
Not learning from mistakes.

Not pacing. Going all out for 30 seconds and then ****ed for the rest of the round. That was mine anyway.

there is a lot of experienced boxers who are not in shape and still are competing in high level. I`m not saying its good, but i wouldn`t put it in noob flaws.
