Not sure. But if you want to see a good infighter watch some James Toney fights.

Rocky Marciano, shortest reach out of any heavyweight champion, yet highest KO%.

I know people are going to call him a holder but I say Ricky Hatton is good to watch for inside fighting.

His best work is on the inside and like it or not he neutralizes the other guy while doing his own work, working with one had free, using his body weight to upset the balance of his opponent. He does a lot of little things that to the untrained eye looks unskillfull.

Everyone who says Toney is on the money to, he thrives on the inside.

?? thats about the worst possible thing you could do on the inside alot of amatuers think bc this works for pros (james toney, mayweather, etc) its gonna work for them. keep your hands up when inside inless you wanna get KTFO.
