silly as it sounds, start punching your opponent in the body. Body punches dont normaly score in amateur boxing though, thats why most amateurs go for the head with staright punches, thats the best scoring punch

and where did you get this from? Ofcourse body shots score in amature boxing. The ones that dont score are because they not too visible if your opponent has his bac to the judges hence blocking their view of the shot

Start hitting people in the body hard and frequently. The effects are addictive and you'll get better at it because you'll practice it more because it works.

Set them up simple: Get them used to the 3 or 2 upstairs and then drop it downstairs and see how that makes them feel. You'll find all sorts of tricky ways to get people but when you're first starting out this is about as complicated as you want to go.

I know this from experience, in the AIBA in australia they hardly ever score body punches. They only really score straight punches to the face/head.
I have experienced this in my fights and have seen it many times while watching fights. My coach even said to me in one fight dont bother punching to the body because they dont score.
I have also seen in fights if the boxer had shit technique and was bowling punches the judges would not score punches because of shit technique, and no i am not kidding. Some judges are kunts

You kinda contradicted yourself, and explained why they aren't scored. Since the judges are on every side of the ring, and you need at least 3 of 5 to hit their button a lot of the time body shots aren't scored because not enough judges had a clear view.

I'm a heavy body puncher, and I've lost three separate times by a single point in computer scoring where if they were scoring my body punching I would've beat the guy easily. But since the scoring system is gay I lost even though I actually landed more punches. But since three of five judges didn't see a lot of my body shots they didn't count.

Even if they aren't being scored though, keep throwing them. Use it to set set up head shots by mixing up your punches head and body.

You can also hurt guys and tire them out. I had a fight last weekend vs the toughest guy I ever fought. I hit hard but he just walked through my shots. The only time I hurt him was with a left hook to the body.

No, Official ABA scoring doesnt usually score body shots.

Same in the ABA. The target area, however, allows body shots, but rarely scores them simply because a clean punch is normally seen to knock an oppenents head back, which a clean body shot doesnt always have a sign that it landed. They are scored, but as stated, its extremly rare for them to do so, in championship level bouts. Club shows are normally more forgiving.

Also to the TC, your footwork believe it or not will help you the most, if you can dig your feet in and stick leverage into your shots.

basically you would use your jab or jab cross to set up your body shots and drill the combination set or sets on a regular basses to get that combo automatic

Set ups and complete and serene acceptance that you WILL get hit in your face occasionally.

Once you can say, "Oops. I am going to get hit in my face. Oh well.", compensate, and roll with it? You can work the body effectively.

try throwing punches to his head, when his hands come up to block them shots, drop down to the body and dont stop punching, then when his hands come back down, then bang to the head again + look at how the fighter holds his guard, if one of his hands are too high up throw to the body on that side, if it lands double it or tripple it up, when his hands come down theres your change again like i explained earlier
