Yur to low, your out of balance I can see it! Have a friend push you in the side as your doing the workout and see if your to low by the waist bend or the knees you should be able to feel it. Also have him push you in the chest to make sure your weight is forward so you can't be top heavy.
When Mike worked up and under he often squared off so his right and left hands were abit more equal but squareing off to long in front of a good fighter can get your introuble with balance alone. Also get your hands out away from you just abit, the punch is actually aimed at the chest and then brought up, you don't ain for the chin, the chin moves quickly the chest not so fast.
Theres actually two upper cuts to throw theres straight up the shoot and theres one that crosses slightly as you bring it up and thats for hoping to catch the guys chin and turn it!!
Theres a video of Lamotta on here shadowing at 90 yrs old he throws the upper cut that crosses. It statrs up the middle and ends with your right hand in front of your left shoulder. Its a great punch if you happen to slide that way too. Same with the left hand if you coordinated enough to pivot out and get on the opponents side to catch him in profile!! Thats what Tyson was taught because if you see your opponents head in profile theres no way hes hitting you and you have a clean shot of his jaw. All the good in fighters where taught pivots and stepping over to get angles, its part of getting in without getting hit. Demsey was very good at stepping out with his right foot and punching and If your a southpaw stay that way your gonna screw up inside if you don't concentrate on it. I trained a heavyweight southpaw in the late 70s who good punch like a mules kick and he had that problem of stepping over.
good luck Ray.
