So any tips on what to do when you fighting a guy with longer reach?
I am 185lbs, 5.11, reach 72
learn to take small steps
I'm a 5'8" with a 68-69" reach and fight at 165 LBS so 99% of the people I box are way taller than I am, getting inside is the classic way to better taller fighters
what was Tysons reach and high? 6.0 and 74? Or something?
Pressure, compact head movement, and body shots. You can't stay on the outside when you're at a reach disadvantage, you need to crowd your opponent. Look how Joseph Benavidez fights, he does it pretty well.
hes 5'11" same height as A.C slater:icon_chee , compared to a lot of guys tyson fought his reach was short.
I've met Joseph , and Joseph is like 5'3"-5'4" in person,I towered over him, I think that makes what he has accomplished even greater,he's a tough guy.
Dub STEP is cool! :icon_chee

Sorry maybe a little misunderstanding...
On Boxrec he's listed as 5'10'' with 71'' reach.
