also he still does the run backwards using left hand as a barge pole defense, why is he doing that with someone with a longer reach than him
It's a good way to control the opponent and if you look at where Steward engrained him to carry his right hand (the part between the thumb and the main part of the glove at the chin), it's pretty rare that anybody is going to reach him. Him and Steward also used to work on the shoulder roll for when people would lunge in with big shots in situations like that. He has good footwork too, which is a big part of it.
