    When they jab, try to slip to the inside slightly, while throwing your jab up around the outside of his arm, hitting them in the right side of their face. Use the time to practice countering their jab as apposed to getting to many out yourself if they are always getting blocked..

    move in at angles, moving around is the key, make them adjust their position to yours
    keep moving and BAM in comes your jab. move and jab, move and jab, en start your boxing from here
    concentrade on speed and movement, power will come with it, if you give it some time.
    if you forget to move or aint quick enough your lost.

    hope this helps

    Dont put any power on your jab, the jab is the weakest punch
    Dont lift your elbow, use a mirrow and jab
    Land a vertical fist, palm faces side
    Dont throw one jab throw 2's and 3's
    Keep your hands up, throw punches from shoulder height

    I sorta get what Boyla is saying there. Practice the jab like a throw without the intention of a big bang on it. (there is a big difference between a straight hard shot with intent and a straight jab).
    Once you got it so you can repeat the jab continually you will find that you can stop someone dead in their tracks with it by having your body movment stepping in behind it or timing them coming into it with a slight adjustment to avoid theirs but make yours move in further.

    Confirm; has it down with the angles thing,footwork/ timing and the power will come later.

    The elbow down vertical fist jab is best used if you outreach the opponent or are taller and you move slightly and shoot your jab through and over the top of and from the outside of their extended jab; blocking their shot and simultaniously having them walk into yours. Your feet can take your head slightly to the outside of their jab while you adjust stance on the angle so you outreach them and counter them in one shot.

    Kostya loved to fight southies because that arm he kept out as a feeler intead of the jabber ; got in their way and difussed or got in the way of their jabs just by him turning slightly and staying behind it ,then he would lean away from their other hand throwing that right hand bomb when they didnt move away.

    You could also (from the inside)try dropping your glove into the elbow point of their jab and turning into it and walk through and out, pushing them open while moving away from their other hand throwing your left as you crouch in and turn. (your left hand landing will be in the way of them throwing their right ,more so if your leaning or moving that other way.)

    Physically; the right hander is at exactly the same disposition as you are when fighting you.

    Thought about another way, You actually have an advantage; that the righties are more used to fighting each other ,more often than people like you!

    if a fighter is pawing at your jab u should throw a double jab the first is for him to block the second should be in his face but you have to use foot work to get in. even if the jab doesnt get in right away don't stop throwing it

    Just so you know, lost of guys are just not very easy to hit...with anything, left or right.. It's a lot of work figuring out what works against them. Don't feel like the lone ranger. That's part of the sport.

    Personally I hate lefties but I have found this to be true: ain't nothing harder to hit than a jabbing southopaw that steps to his right.

    Keep trying what those other people are saying and if that doesn't work, then you could always do like Golata and just punch his balls!!

    Yeah if you dont deal with it somehow they get free reign as you react.
    If you practice before hand and know what your about to do and his only two ways out, you can do some rare stuff that is safe to do as you protect and smother as you change your centre line of fire to where he is going to.

    This is outa left field and dangerous too if you dont watch their rear left the whole time and use your rear landing straight or cross to go through its path as your body moves behind it in the same direction .

    You can deal with their right jab steppig to their right by turning slightly and facing it (opening up your front foot slightly),checking it with your left hand and extend your left on contact as you step through them (opening them up) as you send through a right straight cross while moving away from his rear arm but through his front one, covering it /maintaining contact, as you move and counter off your rear.
    you can move away from that rear and get a shot home as you move into into his right arm maintaining contact with it,depending on where he heads to in reaction ,you can actually end up standing there in south paw yourself (with out moving!) like if he moved back in to your right you just pull your lead leg back so that your right cross is now the lead protector cheking where he moved to etc.
    Then you pull that right foot back as you land left and he is now to your right and will clean be walking into your left jab if he wants that same ground again.
    At the very least he will have questions occuring next time he wants to move right on you.
