I say circle him, use your footwork, work the jab, and stay away from him. Don't let him get in on you, and also keep your elbows tight




What a stud

1. Don't fight in backyard matches.
2. Wear A mouthpiece and headgear.
3. Keep your distance, use your reach.

Don't get over confident, he can beat your ass. Use your reach, make him come to you and use your jab.

One thing I used to do before I learned how to decently defend against punches and kicks or use good combos was, jab afew times with my left hand and get him to block them or take them on the chin this all builds up to me throwing a huge right hand and then backing away quickly so he cant counter. I found more often than not it didnt land but even through the persons lame ass block it still hurts and can make them off balance etc, and if it lands its pretty much fight over.

Dont forget to throw kicks, if he dosent come forward for you to counter, kick the bitch.

Well, if we're gonna break boxing rules, might as well suggest some knees and elbows while we're at it, eh?

Let's see if I can give some advice that's a little less cliche...

Alright, so you're taller; everyone has already suggested that you use your jab... But I bet that, since you're untrained, there's a pretty fair chance that the guy may just wade through your jabs and get on the inside. So, here's how you can stay on the outside:

whenever you're done attacking, step back at an angle. When he's attacking you, cover your head and step back at an angle. If you retreat in a straight line, he'll catch up to you if he's determined. If you go off at an angle, he'll have to turn before he can pursue, which will give you the extra split second that you need.

That's the only unique (thus far) thing I can suggest. But I'll also throw in some of the good ol' "throw more than one punch at a time," "when throwing combos, vary the height of your punches," "keep one hand in front of your face while the other punches," and whatnot.

Oh, and I know a good one! Whenever you throw a jab, step forward with it; that will get your entire bodyweight behind your punch. If you aren't good at putting weight into your punches (which is most untrained people), stepping into your jabs will make them your strongest attack...

Of course... you need to train regularly to work these into your habits... so when you get hit, it'll probably all go out the window.

In which case, AtomDanger's advice is probably the best.

(but seriously, if you can remember to step off at an angle, it'll make a world of difference)

Oh my bad, im a kickboxer, so I commonly make the mistake of assuming everyone else is xD.

Yea if you agree to just a boxing match with no kicks, that might be bad advice :P I find that if someone wont come to me I will kick and defend.

Also depending on your reach (which im pretty sure you will have a moderate amount on him) dont be afraid to size up his reach wait for his punches step back usually at a 45degree angle left or right and throw counters.

This is how I fight im 6'3" with a 79.5inch reach. I fought this same guy twice who is a brown belt in karate who was 5'7" I beat him twice because he couldnt close the gap without taking a good punch/punches and me backing off before he could do anything. My last fight I fought someone with the same height as me and a reach similar to my own, as you can tell from my sig I got tkoed in the second round. I like to counter and I like to throw accurate shots, more often than not I win by one or two big punches that land clean, thats because I have big power. If you have more speed than power i'd say by all means throw combos. Find whats comfortable for you, keep your hands up and your head down.

Agreed. Angles are the way to go, especially for tall people... you bastards (I'm 5'6).

though it's not always the case, most untrained people dont have a great deal of either... But I see speed more than power from them. But maybe that's just my own personal experience.

know what i say? watch some vids, sure its not as good as a real trainer, buts its better than nothing.Use simple combos such as jab, then right, or even jab, jab, right.Dont try anything fancy, it usually doesnt work and it results in you getting nailed in the face
