Default defence tips

hi everyone. i had my first sparring session the other day. ive only been boxing for a month once / twice a week so i took a few heavy hits. brilliant fun though. just wish i knew what i was doing a bit more. anyways the thing i think i need to work on most is defense. i just panicked completely so any shots i dodged where mainly by accident. how can i practice? i also found i couldnt see a lot of punches coming because my arm / headgear was in the way lol. i meen i could see the punch coming but not how close it was. thanks

Get a partner and stand in front of each other. Take turns throwing punches at each other and defending them. Start off with just one punch at a time and then move up to two, three, four etc as you get more comfortable.

Work all the different types of defense, slips, rolls, parries, blocks. It will get you more comfortable with punches coming at you, but you get to do it in a controlled environment where you know that it's only one or two punches at a time so you will be more relaxed.
