Good fundamentals.
If I trained you, I'd have you work more on feints and movement before and after throwing punches. Also, you seem to move to the left as a matter of habit. Go to the right a lot more, especially after throwing punches.

I realize it's just some easy shadow boxing, but that kind of stuff needs to be repeated from the ground up, over and over.

yeah, i would say the same too. i would also add the importance of fluidity and continuity of movement.

I am no expert but something I noticed is that you throw your hook rather low. It isn't shoulder to cheek to prevent being countered. I didn't see a hook thrown high enough to protect you from a counter. Thats the one thing I picked up on almost immediately because my previous trainer worked with me a lot on that especially after i hurt my arm throwing my hooks wrong. Nice vid FLIP

your fundamentals are sound and you were very well trained. if i were you i would focus on just increasing your punch output and speed.

yeah i noticed that to like the last 30 seconds there were some speed in it but i know i should have done it more. but for some reason when you tape yourself shadowboxing you get hella tired hella fast

You are a VERY talented kid, I just think you need to throw with intention, also circle right a touch more. You circle left very naturally but right is forced. You are very talented and sorry if my first critique was harsh, think I was jealous!

Looks good. You got a few Cottoish mannerisms going on.

You have the same problem I have. Throwing hooks when shadow boxing feels un-natural and always ends up looking strange.

My best advice to you would be ignore anything you hear on this forum. You look like you know what you are doing, and any criticisms people give you are simply them stroking their own egos.

Question about shadowboxing:
Everytime I see someone (amateur or pro) do it, they throw relatively short punches and don't use their whole body alot. It usually looks more like arm punches. Which results in a lot higher/faster punchrate but they look all look like weak punches imo.
So what's the deal with that?

About the video itself:
Nice imo, only flaw I noticed was that you should keep your right elbow closer to your liver while punching with the left.

because shadowboxing is usually used to warm up maybe? not sure

at my gym we throw long punches in shadowboxing and we do it all the time to work on technique and get warmed up and that, its very important

Well done mate, looking good!

Keep up the good work! I know how frustrating it is when your fights are cancelled. I've had 3 cancelled so far, one after the actual weigh in itself!

What for???????????????

The opponent backed out after the weigh in, his club had a word with the officials who said the weight difference was too much, despite the fact it's the Super Heavyweight Division.

Funny thing is that it was the other club who really pushed for the fight despite the fact that he was 24lbs lighter than me, my coach just said that's down to them we'll take the bout. Rumour has it that they were expecting me to be 245lbs of lard, which is all too common in the division.
