I will asume your are right handed. Well, I don't know how long youve been boxing, but when you jab, make sure you bring it straight back to your face, and keep your right by your face. Instead of throwing the left hook with a jab, try an overhand right or right cross. Also try to feint a jab, and throw a left hook to the body instead.

I have been boxing for about a year and 4 months, but have been studing A LOT for 4 years straight now. Not to mention 6 or 7 years back when my dad was teaching me how to street fight too.

If you pull your head back when you think you are gonna get hit, or they are throwing a punch at you, and they hit you square, you are done for. You will go down, or be shaken up badly. Try to slip under the punches. Or just block it with your glove.
