    sounds good, can we have a video of how it's improved every few months? :)
    When I was boxing I liked doing a 'double jab, low right hook, high left hook, right uppercut' on the pads, used it in sparring both in boxing and sanda with varying success, depending on opponents. I don't do pure boxing any more, but if I'm doing rounds on the bag in the gym I'll still use this combo, it gets you changing the height of your strike, and you can mix the tempo up.

    I don't box that much and I can't say I think too much about a favourite combination. It's always the same at the start of an art though, when I first started bjj I liked the triangle to arm bar combo, because it was the first thing I strung together on my own. Hell, it carried me through a whole two competitions. :D

    I'm a bit shorter than most so usually when I'm attacking it's coming underneath incoming punches. With that said:

    Low jab - right cross/overhand right - left body hook...

    I also switch quite a bit using a jab-jab-cross combo

    Jab, roll, hook, cross is a fav. Simple but high percentage.

    I like to jab a lot off of head movement and rarely throw more than two/three shot combos.

    I actually dislike pure boxing sparring as I'm far more comfortable using and setting up punches with kicks and knees (and Visa versa) than just setting up hands with hands and movement. I also have a better time with distancing when legs are in play and prefer to strike at range or in the clinch.

    I have so many go to combos it hard to call any a favorite. If I am boxing a southpaw, tall, or shorter guy I always double jab first. So that's it. The double jab. Although I am real fond of tthe double jab left hook to the body. I just can't land it when the pressures on

    (trying it in my chair at work) I like how that feels. I'm going to try it on the bag tonight. :)

    Pardon my ignorance but what do you mean by "roll"?

    It's the term given to the evasive/defensive maneuver of 'rolling' your head underneath a punch. Essentially it involves changing the level of your head with a slight slipping action and 'rolling' lateraly and up in a U shape. Commonly combined with a hook from the same side hand as you rolled too.

    I used to love this combo, the cross wasnt so much as a feint but really twisting the hand over the top but with less power and bouncing it off them which left you in a great position to sink a real powerful body hook :D

    Pretty much anything that involves at least 1 power punch and my opponent isn't expecting.

    But 1 I've found effective when my opponent has a tight guard is; left (lead hand for me) uppercut ,which should either move the opponents guard or knock his head back setting up a right hand.

    I've found if the uppercut lands i can tee off with the right hand,possibly because people don't seem to expect a lead hand uppercut from an orthodox fighter.

    And for a good reason. You have to move to close range to hit with the uppercut.
    Getting in and out of range without leading with the jab to distract your opponent is something that requires you to be pretty damn quick and athletic.
    Roy jones Jr used to lead with uppercuts and hooks in his prime.

    mine is
    uppercut - hook - straight.
    in two variations: right - left - right
    and left - left - right.

    It isn't a short range uppercut I'm talking about,there has to be enough room to get the right hand off afterwards.

    If you pick your moment you should have no problem leading with a hook,uppercuts tend to work better off something else though unless they're counter.

    Overhand right, left hook, right uppercut, jab out. It's such a fun combo to play with. Also, as I have poor reach I tend to be quite fond of the overhand right as a tool to discourage jabs.
