If the spam fireball, hurricane kick them (you have to be midrange). IF they do that jump fireball thingy, slowly get them to the corner. Now, keep them at mid distance...if they try to teleport out, you can anticipate where the teleport will be and punish them (throw). If the fireball, hurricane kick. If they stand there, fireball them. Mind games at that point. Usually, most akumas start spamming fireball...just anticipate it and jump over to punish.
