I always thought hooks were better in a clinch cos elbows are in the way if you want to uppercut.
What makes Uppercuts from the clinch difficult is that your opponent has hold of you, and can control your body movement to varying degrees, depending on when you try to punch. Its a good technique to practice, but if you can't master it in the gym environment you don't want to use it in a fight. But you'll never know if you can do it if you don't train with it, so definitely give it a try.
thanks for the advice, i have been practicing this on bag and partner drills for a while and getting confident in it but still need some training
