So by the topic, you know I am a novice at stand up.

What are the best ways to develop the ability to angle in at your opponent with your punches? And any advice on how to close distance? I always find I am too far away from my opponent and that he'll always block my shots.
stepping diagonally will help you with angles , especially when u have ur opponent on the ropes. small steps in straight lines to the left or right will make a big change to the angle. if all ur shots r getting blocked mix up body and head. if ur too far away move closer:p
Think of standing at the point of a 'v' and angle into your opponent on that. They work good for counters.

Move in by bobing and weaving or using the jab.
