Default Do I have the build to counterpunch?

let me start by saying im awkwardly built. i have long arms, big hands, big feet, big torso, big shoulders, but short legs.

and let me say i have freakishly long arms. im 5'6'' and i have longer arms than some people over 6 feet tall.

do you think that having long reach but no real height advantage gives me the build to be a counterpuncher? if not, what do you think would fit?

also, today i did a little backyard boxing with a guy who was bobbing and weaving like tyson, and i worked him out. he would come in, and id land counter rights and left hooks until i backed him up, then id let him come at me again and do the same thing.

Sounds like you are one of those genetic freaks who was made for boxing. Kind of like Muhammed Ali or Mike Tyson...if you watch football Deon Sanders, or better yet Earl Campbell..

I think IMHO counter punching is more of a mind set then physical make up.
