Another great question from the CORE COMBAT WEBINAR.
I am NOT tall…at barely 5’8″ on a good day, I’ve spent a life fighting people taller than me…even in competition where I competed anywhere from 178 to 190 pounds.
The “secret” to fighting someone taller – isn’t really a secret and it’s something that every boxer knows…
When you’re fighting someone taller you need to MOVE IN. This brings you inside their range and jams their power. I know this may seem counter intuitive, but if you don’t you will be at the mercy of his reach. The good thing for us is that we’re alsways moving in and taking ground!
