Watch the shoulder not the fist.

Keep your hands up by your face.

Dont put all your effot into all your blows power comes from technique not how much energy you exert.

Dodge

Dip

If your getting ran sacked in the face start anhilhating your opponets gut....

Work on your juke a lot. It sounds to me like you won't be fighting anyone that is very professional, so your juke is a big point to practice.

Hand eye coordination is the next step. Know where you want the punch oto land, and know how to stop the opponents punch.

Speed next. Take an object, set it up. Punch with left arm, then punch with right as you pull away with the left, and as you pull away with the right, punch with the left again. Rat-ta-tat-tat rhythm. Work on that speed.

Your weight is a next step. If you are heavy-set, jog, jog, jog, and when you think you are done jogging, jog some more. Get those pounds off. You'll be fighting against someone in your weight catagory, so if you weight 220 and have some fat, and the opponent weights 220 and is all muscle, then there is a problem.

Check your reach. You'll want to know how you compare. Look up on some boxing websites and books to see what the average reach is for boxers. If you have more reach than the average person, you are already doing better.

Strengthen the waist and chest by doing situps and crunches. That'll help with the blows.

When in the ring, amateur boxers always like to go for the head. Don't do that. Aim low, then when they buckle, sink a head shot.

And then, last, but not least... BLOCK BLOCK BLOCK. Never let your guard down.
