    I still don't think you should rush into your next fight so fast after losing. You need to fix the problems with your technique which means hours and hours of pad hitting (consider finding a gym which DOES have the time to train you). A few weeks is not enough time to drastically improve, i personally wouldn't take a fight for another 6 months if i was coming off two straight up losses.

    It is tough ditching a coach who is not perfect for you, if you do not feel comfortable go to another gym to supplement first and then decide. I had to leave my first coach too, even though he was a great guy he didn't look after his amateur fighters as well as he should have.

    Can't really comment much on your videos, have only done a few months MT but from a boxing standpoint you could really benefit from pad hitting.

    There may be people nearby that can help you. Also your age and weight is relevant to strategy and long term advice.

    24 yrs old, 61 kilos from singapore. started MT with no previous martial art background about 1 yr plus ago. trained on off during the 1 year as i had to juggle with my soccer commitments. but i've stopped soccer now to concentrate on this fully. =)

    3) or knees (cover with hands, slightly jumped in attack, aimed at solar plexus to give him something to think about).

    What will work best will depend on your style of fighting.
    If you can't find enough people to spar with, visit another gym, especially if the partners you have are not in your weight division.
    You might even try training your boxing level higher than it is now, just to have an answer to some of the combos, you could then work from there.

    If you get caught with puch combos after you kick, try either returning your hip to "guard" quicker after the kick or teeping straight off the kick without putting your foot down.
    generally i'm the one trying to punch more than kick. so in my fight i tried to close the distance, eating alot of teeps, jabs n kicks trying to get in. i tried to set my punch combos with inside leg kicks n that helped abit.

    but when he starts returning punches as well thats where i get abit lost. do i continue trading punches, or should i counter with something else. i think sakmongkol's advice of using knees sounds good so i ll try that in the gym.

    do i clinch up with him n knee, or just knee from my stance?

    one problem i noticed is when i take punches, even though some dont rly hurt, they tend to "push" my head left n right n all around and i get unbalanced, therefore making it hard to execute something good.

    how should i work on that?

    You move back and forth. Circle is better. That's how you ended up on your ass in round 2.

    Your fitness is poor. You need to do what it takes to get in shape. Run more, lift weights, but you need to figure something out. You can't fight if you gas.

    You need a new coach. If you don't even know what drills to do to practice your defense and counters, you need someone to show you. We can't teach you that on the internet. You should know your basic pat downs, probably some crazy monkey, and some headwork. All that should let you counter.
