Train hard, then go on a road trip, go to some gyms in bigger towns. See if you can catch somebody's interest. Be prepared to fight, or at least train with anybody you can. Remember lots of head movement with a taller fighter. Look at Tyson when he was young. He tore up taller guys. Unlike boxing, when you get inside, you can hold and hit. Long arms are a disadvantage inside, they need punching room. Move around alot to get in then your shorter arms have the advantage. Getting in is footwork.
