Can't take a shot

Question: I was boucing for a friend and got into a scuffle and knocked a guy out with one punch. Someone saw this and invited me to try boxing. In my sparring and found that I could really deliver a knock out punch but found I can't take a punch either. I am very muscular and strong in my upperbody and can really hit hard in close. Problem is when I get hit my legs get all rubbery and disconnected with the rest of me. I am open for second a third shots. I knocked a couple of lower skilled guys out but found I was straggered from some basic shots too. I was told I have no base and need to and improve conditioning. Then I went up against a skilled female boxer. I was reluctant to hit so I went on the defensive. She could hit and her lower center of gravity and her leg drive kept pushing me into the ropes. I would push her off with my much stronger upperbody but she kept coming back. I was sucking wind and she caught me with a good upper cut and I my legs were gone. Dazed and my legs shot I could not escape or grab onto her. I was knocked out cold with some follow up shots. Later she told me I was too easy to push around and I need to strengthen my legs and improve conditioning. Why can't I take a punch. Is it my legs, jaw, skills, conditioning or all of the above.
