You need to get inside and go to the body and then to the head. You make it harder on yourself by trying to slug a tall fighter in the face from a distance, you need to close the gap and get close to him. If you break down the body, the head will be there.

Kinda weird actually, normally when I see a smaller huskier fighter go up a gains a huge 7 foot tall fighter, the 7 foot one is KOed easily, is this because taller people are easier to take down?

jab when he steps
jab before him

keep jabbign and move inside when you jab

dont worry about gettign hit because you might have to take some to get in

keep jabbing it will slow him down and not let him set up

move ou head and dip his jabs and go to his body

keep moving but get inside anyway possble

counter punchers usually eat up fakes. You don't always have to initiate. Fight fire with fire, counterpunch his ass.

If your shorter you have an advantage, you get to use your legs to punch. The taller guy has to punch down and cannot. Watch Mike Tyson in the late 80's, then you'll have no problem

if you don't have Mike Tyson power you need to get good at d-fence.

Or if you just want to hit him hard look to trade blows. When you know he is about to throw the jab, you throw your right hook, you can win in that trade every time.
