(Boxing) for some reason in sparing lately whenever I try to body jab or cross I always hit their elbows/arms first. Very annoying and discouraging. It seems like my opponent seems it coming or glove is just not fitting in between. My coach simply said (which sounds logical) to throw my punches a bit lower but I feel like of they are any lower than the elbows it's getting very low almost pointless. Even after watching the best body jabber mayweather I can't seem to figure out how he is so successfully with this punch always hitting the pit of the stomach.
