I've been boxing for about a month now, i know the basics, jab, cross, and just a little of the hook. In a few days i will be fighting someone outside of the ring. My opponent has no experience in boxing but can fight. he has a powerful right hand and not so much a left. he likes to wind up for that hook or the powerful straight right. i am alot faster than he is.we are about the same size but he has about 15 more pounds than me. iam 156, he is about 165. if i use the jab will it be effective? (12 oz gloves) i might be winning the rounds but 1 of his punches could change the whole thing. iam just wondering if you guys have any techniques that i could use. it would be helpful. thanks. suggestions?
