In boxing, how should I spar someone who seems like he doesnt have fear? I like to fight on the outside and jab and use my rear straight. I love hooks but I gained a little bit of mental block and Im little bit affraid to use hooks therefore. Its because a lot of times I threw a hook my opponent ducked under and hit me with lightning fast hook of his own. It was just so fast that I didnt have the time to see it coming. Then I tried to build a reflex of ducking after every hook of mine, to avoid potential hooks from my opponent. But my trained said I shouldnt do that, and basically I try to just use straight punches and front hook when Im back-pedalling. But thats not the main part of my question. The thing I wanted to ask in the first place is this: I have few sparring partners who dont use footwork very much and only cover their head with those big gloves. So when I jab , its like nothing. When I cross, its like nothing. They just cover and GO FORWARD at me , slowly, with small steady steps. Its SO frustrating. I know Im supposed to throw a hook when they are covering the front of their head(face) but as I said before, Im affraid they will just duck under and take my head off with their hook after they duck under... So basically I just go backwards jabbing the whole time, but many times my opponent just walks through my jab and throws hooks at me so fast that Im not able to evade all of them. These are not so strong as the ducking counter hook of other opponents but they are strong and fast enough to let me realise that I should not be hit by them. I personally think I have good footwork and fast feet in comparison with the rest of people but it seems to me like these "pressuring covering opponents" are always able to just cut me off when circling or something...also I think, sometimes some of my sparring partners who see themselves as strong or bulky, are not affraid of my power. They dont respect my punches. Im a big guy and fast but they just cover and pressure my like a little girl. I feel like Im bullied ... Please, can you give me some advice?
