You might also look for footwork in regards to stickfighting or filipino martial arts. Utilizing the male and female triangles, for example, can be applied to movement patterns in sparring. Anything on Panatukan would be ideal, because the structure is similar to western boxing, which is similar to krav.
I'm a big advocate of doing lots of light sparring- the kind you don't get injured doing and can look forward to. Light sparring gives you a chance to experiment with these things. You might find that if you circle away from the right hand, his left hook will get you, but you might find it a good opportunity to enter for infighting, or if you slip or dodge it, you might be able to check/pin his left shoulder back so you can deliver big right hands or greco roman style takedowns (but watch out for a spinning backfist/elbows). Its also useful to be able to use either lead, because an open or closed stance has different advantages, and if you develop the triangular footwork you kind of need to be comfortable with either lead.
Martial arts don't build character; they build characters.
