Default Having trouble landing the Southpaw right hook.

Was working on some offense with a fella in the ring today. The jab was landing pretty well. And I was able to land the left hand to the body pretty good. But I had trouble hooking off the jab. It was being blocked, but I still wasn't in the position to pivot off.

Hopefully, its from the fact that my partner was about 160, and my being 125. But luckily, stamina didn't effect me, which is a plus!

If I'm understanding correctly your throwing a jab and off of that jab your throwing a hook with that same hand? are you looking for a straight cross after that hook?

I use this combo a lot in sparring and for me it doesn't matter if that hook lands I really don't care what I'm looking for is for him to block it and in doing so leave him open for a straight right or in your case a straight left.

Do what floyd Paterson did... That would be a good start I think.

If you think about this, it should be pretty easy to figure out. Where you will land your right hook is as a counter...Think about it for a second. Your right hand is behind his left shoulder, which will block your hook. So you need to open him up, or hook to his body under his jab every time he throws it. And that will only tighten him up more.
So you need to get his left shoulder out of the way. When he throws the right hand, he turns his left shoulder and opens up, so you want him to throw the right hand. Do what ever it takes to make him throw his right hand, then throw your right hook. This should be easy as most orthodox fighters go right hand crazy against southpaws.

Try landing it after your left to the body (ala Pacquaio on Cotto)

Or try to land it over his jab

Get a good coach that knows how to work the pads and with southpaws.
Have him show you and help you practice -- " how to hook off a southpaw jab.
Practice till it becomes automatic.
It doesnt matter what we tell you online, --- you have to do the work.

Default Re: Having trouble landing the Southpaw right hook.

your opponent probably has his left hand way out to his side, so its obstructing a hook. But I presume your jab is landing because its shooting 'inside' his left hand. In that case you have no choice but to score with that jab. its not until he puts his left hand closer in, that you start utilising the right hook (to get around it on the outside). Cant land the right hook because you WANT TO. you only use it if he clamps his guard in, or you stepped outside.
SP here. Normally I will land in a right hook after I slipped inside his jab, and wrapped the hook outside his extended jab arm. the other problem is the height difference, which is a pretty normal case scenario.

Ducking Jab, slip right then right hook
Jab to body, right hook to head ++
