I find a nice stiff jab (while mostly an arm punch) involves leaning forward and pushing it out starting with your shoulder. A forward step may be involved but not necessary.
If you are stepping too far out, you sacrifice some balance and power.

Lol like so many other techniques - it's honestly so much easier to just practice repetitiously on a punching bag. Reading the best & most accurate advice will just confuse you and make you focus on things more than necessary. Honestly, most things you just have to learn purely by feel.

If he rushes you into the corner take a quick step back and pivot off to the side, watch Jersey Joe Walcott vs Rocky Marciano 1

Because you won't be able to jab stiffly or side step or use good lateral movement unless your balance is correctly proportioned- and I can tell by what you've said that it isn't

I'm 6'2 as well and like most of the other guys said, use jab, jab, and more jabs.

Follow up your jabs with a hook, and if he weaves under your hook then throw your uppercut. Uppercut helps a lot when they are weaving or ducking your punches, but I would throw my straight or jab and if they slip it then I throw my uppercut, because it's hard for them to react and slip my uppercut right after the straight punch.

Another thing is if they are able to rush onto you, then just jam them, or bump with your shoulder, turn them and reset. Then just keep jabbing and following up with hooks then uppercuts. Throw straights then uppercuts, then when they rush into you again bump into them, turn them, and repeat.

Most important thing to do is bump against them when they rush to you, so you are in the pocket and they can't throw clean punches at you, then you turn them and start over what you were doing.

Do what Ray Robinson did especially when fighting the shorter Basilio, just step back and telegraph your right uppercut a little like a bolo punch but not as exagerated just so they know its coming and theyll step back or either try to dodge it either way if they dodge it just step back out of range

The fact that your asking someone who doesn't know how to stand to perform a movement like ray robinson. Your just suggesting a scenario but its totally impossible for him to do those things- you may as well say 'close in like mike tyson, then when you get there turn into Roberts Duran and switch your attacks head and body while switching angles - and finally when he's hurt turn into Julian Jackson and drop da bomb.'

That's a five year olds type of argument. Explain to me this;

How is he going to find the time to perform these movements? Read the opening post

He's not laughing at what Ray Robinson did, he's laughing at trying to apply that to a novice that clearly has troubles with the fundamentals at the moment (nothing wrong with that, it takes time).
