well if your shorter than the guy you have to get inside and then punch...because he has the advantage of the longer arm for the jab or right or w/e

Whew, I think I'm safe on here....unless I'm fighting you on Saturday.

As far as the foot work stuff. Eesh, I don't think I should be giving advice on that one.

SAQ is always a good way to improve footwork it will make u lighter on your feet, although it may not seem very sport specific, it will generally improve your foot speed in short bursts, maybe bobbing and weaving would be a good strategy for you 2 get on the inside.

Speed Agility Quickness training theres a link here - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

i really would have thought that more peole wouldknow what SAQ training is, it is very effective, and although it is designed as a programme 4 footballers and rugby players, it will give the same benefits to a boxer.
