I'm a boxer-puncher. I train to mix up my attack to alternatly box, countering after catching jabs with an open hand (a SORELY underused technique by modern day fighters, and totally UNUSED in MMA) and parrying right hands. This requires less foot movement and you can pretty much stand in front of your opponent making them miss getting them tired and frustrated as they are getting hit more by you then you by them. I'll alternately move laterally or circle while using these techniques.
I turn puncher if a fighter is faster with his hands and feet looking to get in and out with combos, or potshotting. I'll switch to cutting the ring off throwing feints to get him out of position and relying on my own handspeed to "time" and catch him coming in. Once he slows down, I'll start setting traps for him to unload on him, with control.
Sooner or later it's "beddy bye".
Embrace the pain...train hard bro...TRAIN!
