To practice cutting off
To practice using the cut off, you will need a sparring partner. Practice using the center of the ring, on the ropes, and in a corner; taking turns being the pursuing puncher. Change partners periodically so you get experience with different size opponents.
Make a game of it. Train with a few pairs of fighters. Every time a fighter turns a corner, he or she gets a point. Keep taking turns, giving each partner a minute to earn a point. Keep the punching very light; this is not a hitting drill, it is a footwork drill. The winner is the fighter with the most points at the end of the drill.
