What are some go-to counters to the jab and 1-2? I appreciate any advice you have.
Think the issue is speed, to slow to land a power punch and getting countered.

Get the fast twitch muscles running, do HIIT, sprints, try land 100 punches on the heavy bag in under one minute.

My advice is this...stop listening to the people who are telling you that you have good ring movement and footwork. You need to practice the stick and move.

Stick and move:
A technique where the boxer uses jabs or long range punches and then quickly steps backward to get away from an opponent. This requires fast and deceptive footwork.

To quote a boxingscene article from 2009:
For all you new boxers to be a good boxer you need to be able to stick and Move. First stick, and then move. Stick is your jab, imagine your jab is your stick, and you are sticking someone with it. Then you need to move, thats when footwork steps in. You need to move laterally, forwards, backwards and vertically.*
Imagine that you are a in a cage with a lion, and you have a stick, you wanna poke the lion in the eye but at the largest distance possible so he or she (if its a she-lion) doesnt claw you and rip half your face off. Imagine your opponent is that lion and the stick is your jab, this will help you find distance. So stick the lion in the eye or use your jab and then move, imagine one step movement is move, and the jab is stick. It could be like this:
stick, stick, move
stick, move, stick,
move, move, stick,
stick, stick, stickety stick stick, move


stick



stick



move






move, move, move move move move



stick stick

DIng dong (bell)

sit

Ding dong (bell)

stick stick, move
move, move, stick

Ding dong(bell)

you won!

You stepping into range to throw the right, and loosing the extra bit of reach with the long jab. If the dude is cracking you every time you do it, he's likely onto that left/ right combo and timing you a bit. Mix it up and don't be predictable. Try the lead right or something different, Use some feints and draw him out some

Also, you might well need to take some shots now and then to land that right. You're gonna get hit more when you step in. Hearns had some long arms, killer jab and right hand. I'd check out his tactics as well

Sounds like my usual dates. I have a plan in place, but everything goes to hell after a few drinks.

You can have a look on real buzz or find it over here, you need to be trained in a such a way that your boxing punches and boxing defense are good enough. Start with a light punch on bag, break a sweat just push yourself a little more each day, use your whole body instead of just the arms to punch like this you can start with the things. Enjoy your training.
