in boxing a wiry/lanky build is considered a good build for a boxer, for a reason. the shorter boxer almost has no advantage, the only thing he can do is try to OVERCOME the advantage of the taller boxer by boxing inside and using headmovements and hooks. Tyson is the perfect example, but even then a good taller boxer like Lewis and even Douglass will take him apart. This is why in boxing the weight classes are separated by such miniscule weight. You almost never see 2 boxers compete with the height/reach disparity that you see in MMA. only in HW really and the taller guys dominate those divisions. what about MMA?
