I used to love throwing the left hook to the body and I used to stop a lot of my opponents with this shot, but every now and then I would spar with someone who had this counter locked down.

The two fighters who come to mind are Jamie Moore and Matthew Macklin. Ironically enough, these boys fought each other and had one of the best fights in British boxing history.

When I threw that hook to the body, these boys were so fast to catch it and counter both ways – countering with the left or right.
