    Another way to handle a jabber is to jab first and jab often. Eddie Futch trained Ken Norton in his win over Ali to jab every time he even thought Ali was going to jab. Didn't have to land just keep him from setting up his game.

    You can also use the jab to close distance with someone taller. Follow your jab in, be sure to move your head otherwise they may be able to time your attack and nail you with a right cross.

    I know this may come as a shock, but leg kicks aren't generally allowed in boxing.

    If he's got a reach advantage than you might have to step in as you catch it on your glove so that you'll be in range to throw a shot back... other than that I don't have much to add to what's been said.

    Most of what i am reading seems to be great advice. Another technique is if he is consitently weaving to one side.., as u specified he was moving to his right..., observe the movement through your jab like any earlier post says..., often not allowing him to set up his gp.., but as u observe this movement time it up and through behind where his head is.., u will find if done right it will meet where his head is going to be when he moves.., i have seen it used quite a bit in the pro ranks of boxing..,

    TheCoach,
    You might want to check out the crazy monkey defense. It's helped me tremendously to be comfortable with boxing. The traditional boxing defenses like parries, catch, bob&weave etc. take a long time to learn.

    From what I've experienced, the result of new people trying to do it (traditional boxing defense) during sparring almost always leads to them leaning their heads back and then flailing wildly because they get hit so often. With the CM defense, you get up to speed much faster if you drill it properly. I'd say 2-3 months and you'll be quite comfortable. In the meantime, also work on the traditional stuff so you're building up your attributes.

    I pretty much suck at boxing myself, but the general rule is to use the same hand to counter what you just received. E.g. return a left jab for a left jab. A tip that I've found useful is, once you feel the punch hit your glove or forearem, fire off. We do a drill on this, where there is an attacker, and a counter-attacker. The attacker throws straight punches (jab or cross), and the defender blocks and immediately returns. After you get good at this, throw in hooks and uppercuts. Then the attacker gets to throw combos.

    Great thread, looking forward to learning more good stuff.

    yeah this is something i try and drill into newbs, and try to do as much as i can myself. good thing about being a southpaw is that for their jab i return a cross, for their straight right i return a lead hook. ive seen some awesome KOs off this, like masato vs Kraus in... i think 04? 03? something like that. knocked the stuffing oit of him. zambidis is also awesome at this

    I like to box from the inside so I tend to throw some jabs as a smoke screen and bob and weave my way in shovel hook and uppercut range. I also like to fight out of a crouch with a peek-a-boo guard. I usually take a few on the way in but most of the time they are off the gloves or the forehead.

    BTW, this is not kickboxing, I know I would be eating knees on the way in.
