    inside fighting is all baiting and head position. place your head on the opposite side of his head to avoid a blow from the other side and gain a new position. micro feints.

    Squaring up is your feet and shoulder position, so it's actually reasonable to square up as it gives you more options. This is why inside fighting is usually involving 2 that are squared up.

    watch George Benton vs Ruben Carter

    feint body blows are a great way to get the opponent to prematurely flex, then dig a real one right after when he lets up. The punches are all short inside so work on your leverage and machanics. loading up inside you wont land anything without a proper set up.



    if you notice hes always squared up. in fighting is a skill. He places his head in the right position and has well placed combinations and feints. if someone is much more well versed fighting inside, it can completely shut down and outside fighter.

    You place your head in a spot that it cant be hit effectively. moving it in very close or to one side of his head. some old fighters used to pin the shoulder with the head and manipulate the other free punching arm with their other hand.

    an example of the inside fighting combination, 2 short taps and one big left to the body. the short taps are bait to give a split second to get more leverage on the left, the left is more open but due to the velocity if you gain the fighter doesnt feel is reasonable to counter as it exposes his liver for such an obnoxious shot.
