When fighting somebody who has a good right cross/overhand right and good timing, how do you jab and still be safe? This guy has good accuracy, power, and no drawback/cocking with his right, and throws it when I step in aggressively to throw my jab. Could you use your right hand to cover the left side of your upper head when you jab? I've seen guys do that when they have a low lead hand. One guy who is giving me troubles is a strong heavyweight- he times me when I step in to throw my jab and I can't land my cross because of it. He lands his right even though I bring my left hand back, he's strong so even a shot up higher or to side of head is dangerous. Should I resort to only advancing in the later rounds when he doesn't have speed? I could use a Crazy Monkey approach and lots of dipping and right cross and hooks of my own in later rounds. I think maybe I should just counter-strike him, especially early on, and get on my "bike" and make sure he can't cut me off in the ring. He likes to counter-strike me, and then when one lands, he cuts me off when I'm hurt and trying to circle away. Maybe I should only jab as a way to widen the gap and not advance with the jab. This will gas him out since I have 3 times the conditioning. Then in later round or when trapped in corners early in the fight I could use the crazy monkey defence when advancing and just throw mainly hooks with dipping and bobbing too.
