Never do a fight voluntarily unless it's sparring. Fighting is neither for fun nor for proving that you're more of a person. If you fight, you're in for it to defend your life/another person's life and win the encounter as efficient as possible with the least injuries for yourself.
That you can only learn through regular sparring with somebody who's actually knowledgable about how to behave in street clothes without any gloves or fancy techniques etc. What I always use is a flat hand: it prevents injuries which could hinder you from going on. No matter how though you are, a broken hand will always be crap for punching, and it's not nice afterwards either. And in the frenzy of a fight, it's easy to miss any technique.
Not only for training, but generally, try to breathe through your nose. If you do that, you'll get used to the idea of not giving in to the urge to use the (oxygen wise) better way of breathing through an open mouth. If you get hit in a fight while having your jaw muscles tensed, it's far less possible for your opponent to break your jaw than the other way round. In addition to that, little injuries like you describe will not occur either.
And a good rule for a real fight is to simply deceive, then surprise attack. Go for the diplomatic approach, if you feel that you can win time by it. If the person is distracted by your talk, then use a quick elbow strike to the chin and he's usually KO. Or a second strike if needed.
But for that, you'll have to know how to do a decent elbow strike, so it's no use ranting about this stuff on the internet. It's phsyical, after all ...
Do not go for the eyes either. It's hard to justify in court.Good way to crush a windpipe too, and end up a prison bitch for murder. Nice advice idiot.

Thank God I'm an Atheist.
Get a concealed weapons permit, and when he hits you shoot him. Self defense and all.

Learn from Bas Rutten and you will own everytime.
He pretty much puts chuck norris in his place.

Take the hit and make some money. Unless you're under the age of 18, in which case you should hoof 'em in the balls and run like hell.
The kid is 14 and list "Mathematics" under his interest. There is no hope.
You should submit.
In all honesty take some MMA (mixed martial arts) classes (that means it is a mix of striking techniques and ground techniques). If you do not have an MMA training place around, go for Muay Thai or Jeet Kune Do. All very effective and if you have a lot of time and dedication do some form of Martial Art and study it whether it is Brazlian Jiu Jitsu or Filipino martial arts, what ever. Fact is, most fights dont last the 15minute UFC standard, they are only a few seconds to a few minutes. Dont follow rules but remember, strength is only a factor. You could be the strongest guy in the world but throw the weakest fucking punch ever. Take some classess if you enjoy fighting like i do and sign up for MMA comps rather than street fight. In a street fight you never know what the other guy is packing. And dont search youtube for silly little self defense videos, they may help to an extent but without someone to guide you and help you practice, you are going to suck. A scrawny 90lb kid could deliver a more powerful punch than a 175lb body builder.

'We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
