im a counter puncher
i like to slip and their punch and hit back


i like to hit and slip
then hit again

i throw combinations but i try to keep it at a minimum of like 3
so i can slip again

imhaving problems with dudes who stay away and dnt throw many punches

my weakness is being agressive and comming in
i dont like putting pressure on
i dont want to take a hit to get a hit
i want to make them miss and get a hit

but im working on that for now on
getting inside and being more agressive

Currently, reverting to a partial martial arts stance (even while shadow boxing). I also have a tendency to turn into a southpaw (from my orthodox stance) a lot naturally (again, from martial arts).

I also have to build my strength and aerobic conditioning since I've just begun boxing. But that's for later...

If you feel more comfortable in the southpaw stance, I see NOTHING WRONG WITH IT.

Do what works for you in stance, as long as your hands are up, you're in balance, and you're not too squared up.

Also, by the first "martial arts stance", do you mean you are too sideways? If so that is a good thing so that your midsection will not be exposed.

Do what works as long as there is nothing "bad" like dropping hands, etc.

My footwork needs some work but my weakness is probably endurance, I tire out pretty easy so I start to catch and counter AND that needs some work. :ugh:

In-fighting. I haven't really mastered throwing combinations from close quarters. I've got a short reach so I should be good at it but I prefer to box on the outside or in between.

Every amateur boxer is going to lose except for a few exceptions. Losing rounds in fights or sparring is all part of learning. You have to leave the ego outside of the ring, hard I know, and just focus on brushing up on technical skills. Generally its learned boxing skills which make great fighters not who's tougher or stronger.

Just stay calm even under pressure in the ring. You will look more of a fool if you get flustered. If you get hit hard and look calm its more impressive than if you go off the rails and try to kill your opponent.

yep i should try to think like that ;), though i got a glass chin so.. i really dont know if i can take a solid punch and still stand up and look calm :D. but still i am so afraid to got knock down or knock out by the smaller guy, its all about mentaly toughness.

I have so many weaknesses its untrue. But so does everyone. Even the pro's. I believe that my strengths outweight my weaknesses though overall. So i would say i am quite a good boxer, if you compare me to others in my club.

My main weaknesses are:
-I do that chicken thing where when you have your guard up your elbows are out so my body isnt properly protected.
-My range still hasnt been properly discovered, so i go to hit someone, miss, then they hit me.
-I tend to go into a shell if i get hit too much.
-My legs go heavy after a while in the ring.
-My head movement isnt good enough to get on the inside properly. It is OK but not quite good enough.
-I tend not to move then counter or move and throw a shot at the same time properly. I need to work on that.

Strengths:
-Power, straight up power. I hit as hard as a lot of the taller people in my club if not harder, and i am constantly warned not to use it.
-Good defence on face.
-Reasonably good reactions.
-Hand Speed.
-Accuracy is good.
-Fitness is good, can last against the biggest opponents in the club.
-Ground work i always win (cos im my club its a race to do the exercises laid out on the board in the quickest time. This builds strength quicker).
-Can take good shots to both body and head.

Ive probably missed a load of stuff out, but those are the ones i can think of right now.

My biggest weakness right now is keeping my damn hands and wrists healthy. I have small wrists and have hand hand injuries in the past from other sports. This has caused me a few problems while training.

Im 17.

I think i look small and young in that picture because my arm is just touching on the table. but thats cos my chair isnt adjusted. My chair goes so high it wont fit under the table. Although i am small in real life so....

I tend to want to counter punch alot and being 5'10 and sparring guys 6'3 and up its not really good i guess......and i tend to throw more body shots then i do Head shots for some reason i dont' like throwin to the head

My trainer said my other weakness is that i don't know when i have a guy hurt i tend to think my punches don't hurt cause i always judge my punching power on if i could take the punch........
