    at my boxing gym we just get tolg to put ur 2big2 hitting hand in the way of the jab which then lets you cum back much faster. it works quite well but once u start sparring with beta ppl they get smart to ur blocking and there 2 fast to slip

    wot is the best way to do this

    I presume that you are talking about catching the punch...

    You can also work on parrying it (kind of slapping it away) or slipping it (moving it , down and sideways)..give it time and talk to your coach...you will get it soon enough

    I have no fucking idea what you uhow to box is gunna fake the jab and hook off of it. So instead of trying to parry modify where you hold your hands (i.e. put them up higher) so that when he throws jab it hits your gloves then right when his jab hits your gloves throw your own jabtrying to land over the top of his. This will work well because it will throw off his timing making it harder for him to combo you.
    Now if you know how to slip-slip his jab and throw a jab under his jab this again will throw off his timeing on his combo and set you up for a combo. I aim for his upperrib cage when I slip and jab back but my stance is more compact than most.
    hope this helps

    take the methods that already exist and figure what's best for you. I hate how some people throw advice like this around and not carrying that it may be totally wrong for someone else. Blocking a jab in some ways would be useless against a taller opponent so, if you go around trying that with a tall fighter you'll just get frusterated, figure things out for yourself.

    disagree. the basic jab defence techniques work for everybody in every situation except for speed obviously. if hes much faster than u , ur probably not gonna b able to slip.

    a good way is jab back, also if you wanna fake jab then left hook without coming back, just flick a jab out then rotate your wrist half a circle to the out side then hook his ass, its not gonna be a powerful hook but it will make him blink or move some and then BAM right cross his ass.
    Also just slap his jab down (with your rear had) just a little and just go right above the jab and you will connect.

    There's not really a "best" way, there's a number of effective ways to do so depending on what you plan on following up with and what's the easiest to do at the time (based on the distance, his reach, the angle he is facing you at, etc.) Everyone has given you good advice so far, make sure to use all of it and not to fall back on one thing that seems to work "best".

    it's always different in the ring. I really don't know how much boxing you know, b/c your terminology is really bad. But to answer the question, you parry with your power hand (you do NOT parry w/ ur power hand. if you are left handed you still parry w/ the right hand. the hand you parry with depends on which hand is your opponent's jabbing hand is. parry with side parallel to opponent's jab hand)

    slipping and bobbing is necessary as well. if you parry every jab w/o using other types of defense techs, you will be predictable and vulnerable to certain combos, such as the fake-jab to a hook.
