Sitting back on guard

I don't box anymore, but the last time fought someone they were sitting back on their guard and I couldn't work out how to get by it.

Heres an image

Basically the guy had a long reach. He had his hands extended right out in the guard position whilst his body was leaning away.

He couldn't really offer any offense but as an offensive boxer (slugger) I wanted to hit him. Trouble is that when I moved in, he would short jab me. If I tried for angles, he was so far back he could easily adjust.

How exactly would I have beaten him with that approach?

If you don't read the papers you're uninformed. If you do read the papers you're misinformed.
