The only thing I can say though, is the guy I fought was four years older. Any comments?

Keep your guard up. :P The gloves should be at least ear level protecting your head, doubly so since you don't have headgear on.

Yeah, your right. It's like a psychological thing, getting over the fact you know your about to get hit. And yeah, I probably should keep up my guard more. At on point if you notice, my arm went limp for a few seconds. We were circling when it happened, it must have been when I ran and punched.

What I'll do is, since I'm boxing the guy who was video taping tomorrow, I'll keep my guard higher, get over getting hit, and see if it's a better fight. I'll tape it again and post it

The best way (IMO) to cure your fear of getting hit is to just let a guy hit you as hard as he can a bunch of times.

Best way to get over the fear, is to get one of your friends to spar with you.(I say friend because an acquaintance or enemy will just want to knock you out to show their strength) I do this with mine before Karate meets to get warmed up. Have them punch you in the stomach and the face but after awhile of sparring. When you go in to fight, you'll remember the sting but you won't be scared because you'll know it's coming. It's the mentality, "I did it once. I can do it again."

@Korashk & Annhasle- I'll try that, to see if it works. It sounds like it will, but would I be able to keep going after I get hit a bunch of times? Or is it more for in the long run

You shouldn't let him just hit you during a fight, unless you want to lose the fight.. Some time when you're not doing anything just tell somebody else to start hitting you. You'll eventually lose the fear.

Is there anything I did during the fight that was good, that I should maximize on?

I was talking about sparring beforehand, not actually during a real fight. And don't get hit too much... otherwise you'll have a lot more pain and continue to be scared of being hit. To win fights, you have to use your body and you will be hit. So you have to rationalize that pain, and realize it's necessary to win. Once you have lost the fear of being hit, you'll be able to focus more during the fights and have a faster reaction time. It won't be that easy, but ya gotta do it. Good luck!

Yeah, that's what I meant too. If I get hit before the fight, that would only wear me out for the fight. And yeah, it makes sense. I'll try, tape another fight and you tell me if I improved.

not really no lol. don't go in for one or two punches and just back away either.. that's only giving whoever you're fighting a good chance to hit you. if you go in, stay in until the other person backs away.

I'm obviously not a boxer (KARATE FTW) but during the fight, you seemed eager to land hits which is good (you weren't too scared then, huh?). But you have to be careful, because if you're the only one jumping in to attack, then your opponent can hang back and wait for you. Make him come to you as well. Also, make sure you don't watch only his gloves- his shoulders, eyes and hips also tell where his blows are going. You're agile so that'll help you with boxing. You can do it~

I don't usually just go for the face, I usually go for the stomach. But that was only a small part of the overall fight, and most of the time stomach shot didn't affect him. So I switched to face shots

Definitely! I'm karate instructor so my advice won't be that good for boxing but I'll try!

Exactly. Don't worry, it took me awhile to get used to being hit a lot. But once you do, everything seems to click into place. Once you get that confidence, keep your gloves by your face, watch your opponents moves carefully and set a pace to your fights... you can kick total @ss. Practice though!! I only practice karate fifteen to twenty hours a week which is bad... I don't know how much a boxer should practice though. Ask badger, maybe he knows. :D

No offense Hurst, but I think that your main problem is that you're a pvssy and can't throw a punch lol. You're bulky so you should have been able to take the other guy down with you, instead of hanging off his waist like that. I expect a lot of it is psychological though, as others have said.

I've taken down guys in their late 20's. The oldest was a 31 year old Karate instructor. I'm 17. Age does not matter, if you got skill. PRACTICE.

Like people have said PUT YOUR HANDS UP.

Also, when you're throwing a punch don't lower your other hand, that's a good way to get counter-punched out.

Put your body into your punches. You're obviously just trying to punch with just your arm strength while also backing away - that isn't going to work. You need to put weight behind your punches.

Move a lot more - your feet and your head.

Combo him.
