Default thoughts on boxing tall guys....

I'm about 5'8" and will be sparring someone about 4" taller tonight.

I'm going to try to do my best not to square my shoulders at all (a bad habit i have sometimes) and step in to keep my jab as long as possible, and keep constant head movement to work my way into the inside...

I'm sure my trainer is going to have a strategy for me, and a lecture on breathing... curious as to what you guys think....

lots of head movement.... i know he tends to stand still. my only issue should be the reach difference.... hes only about 12lbs heavier than me so its just a bit of size distance. The long reach should be good work though for me.

I'm curious if i should stay low....

hey bro what class are you on ? i am 5'7 and i feel you as a shortfighter hehe i have fought as a middleweight and i am currently a lightmiddleweight ( still fighting in the amateur ranks in mexico) i have fought guys 6'1 and 6'2 and have done really good after getting used to it.

My advice would be, do not try to fight like a tall fighter, dont fight with an upright position and trying to trade jabs, you are just gonna lose your time, and eat many of them. I use a very low stance and have gotten great results, but you have to train hard to master it, because it can be really hard on your legs and balance, so train hard if you plan to use it.
I attack mostly to the body from this stance and if you combine it with good head movement you will become a real treath.
I dont know your built but this works great for me because i am short but can take a punch and have a decent amount of power, other thing when rushing in to your opponent chest, try to move sideways or create angles, if you just sprint to the inside on a straight line you can get tagged really hard.

Remember most guys try to take your head off with a punch, but if you punch the body hard the head will fall by itself.

hehe well those are my 2 cents, if you want any more advice on tall guys just msg me ill be happy to help

Thanks for the responses. It's awesome to post here and get 2 intelligent posters respond, rather than an arguing mess.

I'm gonna try and stay low. I assume it is going to be difficult for him to utilize as much head movement as i will be able too. i am comfortable with constant level changes from wrestling. we'll see how it goes.

Get in the inside Dont rush straight in though. Jab your way in, give angles and move your head.
