bloodknuck has a little shameless behaviour in the past
do i have to be tall to be good at striking?

Hi, I'm 5'6, 145 lbs, very strong lifting capacity,
and i just started sparring, starting of with boxing.

i got my ass handed to me but not too bad, i got some pretty decent hits off. my sparring partner is about 6'0 and i found it pretty hard to get into his striking range without getting hit.
i assume this is pretty normal but my question is...

am i screwed if i decide to stand up against people who are taller than me?

im also thinking about moving up to 155, should i do this? or stay at this weight?
