    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

    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.

    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.
