    at 0:50 you hardcore telegraphed that jab

    Anytime he came in you usually threw a hook, try some uppercuts next time because he just slips the hook
    Look good though, you compete?

    Thanks bro. Yeah, I definitely will start throwing more uppercuts. Not used to them but need to get comfortable with throwing them. I do telegraph my jab as well too. I just box as a hobby for now, but possibly in the near future I will start competing.

    And I don't think fighting off the ropes is necessarily a bad thing, as long as you don't bury yourself in a corner it can work in your favor. See what Ali did to Foreman.
    Obviously you aren't as big as Foreman, but using that head movement on the ropes was the right thing to do for your size. I'd recommend watching David Haye, he had good head movements and body movement against ropes.

    I will take a look at the Foreman and Ali fight . I typically don’t follow the heavyweight fighters like that, but I’ll watch some David Haye clips to see what you mean ! Thanks bro.

    Uppercuts needed you could have fed him a three course meal you also seem to be quite easy to bully in the ring i suggest you bring yourself to deadlifting in a low rep range for all the strength and very little size gains.

    Thanks for the critique bro. After rewatching it, I’m bummed at myself for not throwing any uppercuts at all. Even my coaches were telling me to do so. I’m going to focus on being more comfortable throwing them.

    For some reason I’m always being walked down by many opponents. That’s something I really need to work on. I do workout but maybe it’s more of a mental thing to? I’ll also focus on just occupying the ring and standing my ground as oppose to settling in walking back. Thanks bro !

    Welcome to the dungeon kid.

    Unorthodox Boxing Style. Unorthodox Boxing Styles are methods of boxing that are alien to the sport. Boxers who apply these methods fall outside the triangle of in fighters, out boxers, and hybrids because they punch and utilize footwork differently from other boxers, though occasionally there is some overlap. You walked in the gym and there was no one there but the trainer sitting in the chair alongside the ring taking a nap. Everything is normal out in the real world. You join and it just happens another person shows and a week or two more two others. There's possibly even an older fella that shows up a couple times a week to assist.
    A little time passes and you and another match very well when sparring. He enters a major competition and wins. Now his picture and his name is in the city wide news paper. (Daily News) Your gym now gets turned into a circus show. A lot of people now want in. Now your forced to disappear for a couple of months and the coach moves else where. Time passes and you find the coach. He's in a place that's unheard of. He has a couple of street thug
    foreigners in there. You now have to fight to get your gym back from these unorthodox fighters.
    To make a long story short. LOSE THE CAMERA! ;)

    You don't gain any thing at all by switching to southpaw; most guys with kick boxing backgrounds do that. There is a common misconception that constantly switching back and forth confuses the opponent but, in reality, the guy doing the switching is the one that is confused.

    KEEP OUT OF HARMS WAY!

    opinions vary you were approached a certain way and changed your approach
    sbeed un tekneeks viree fur surtan reezuns cudung cornirs and siyd stebing

    Melee or pell-mell battle generally refers to disorganized hand-to-hand combat
    in battles fought at abnormally close range with little central control once it starts.

    You positioned yourself and immediately delivered in the game of tag and tagged
    your opponent and IN an unbelievable speed where he was left in an awkward
    flat footed position where you sent him for an unpleasant seat. CRAZY!
