But whenever I try to follow my jab up with any other punch (usually a right cross), I always get countered hard, because I've now put myself within my opponent's range. The best way I can put it is: I can't seem to land a punch (other than the jab) without taking a couple in the process. I can't box offensively AND defend myself at the same time. How do I work on this? Because of my reach advantage, should I just throw lots of jabs and wait for countering oppurtunities to throw more powerful punches like the cross? What are some go-to counters to the jab and 1-2? I appreciate any advice you have.

Turn your whole body into the punch. If your feet are slow, (most people have slow feet at first) you will find that punching a little slower actually hits harder than punching faster. So in other words, punch as fast as your body can turn so you wonít sacrifice power. Again, use your whole body instead of just the arms to punch.
