You're a 6''8 middleweight? I think you should turn pro, it would be entertaining.

The best style for your attributes would be competitive hot dog eating.

What do you mean your reach is the same? I box at Middleweight in the Amatuer ranks and I'm 6'3 and that's considered tall for the weight.

I'm 24 and I'm fighting in the amateurs , do you think 6' 8'' is very tall for a middleweight? that's 1,85 cm right? I hope not being wrong with my converter lol the thing is that normally the trainers I've had have always told me to go the distance ALL THE TIME but I also love brawling and use my good short shots so I don't know who got the problem , would I use any style or theres one recomended style for me? and by the way what I mean with my range is that I don't have a long reach , my reach is exactly the same than my height , you know from fist to fist blabla

You are just over 6', 6'1".

That is relatively tall for a middleweight, the best middle weights seem to be around 178-181cm though there are some middleweights who are your height such as Dmitry Pirog and some who are taller such as Andy Lee who is 188cm.

If your reach is also 185 then that would give you a reach advantage over most of your opponents in the middleweight division.

a lot of my favorite boxers worked on the inside ( Frazier, Hagler , Briscoe...) but maybe that's not the smartest option for me , being taller than the mayority of my opponents , I've been comfortable in the ring using my jab , I'm a converted southpaw so I'm annoying stickin it all the time , maybe Monzon or B-Hop would be a good example for me and as I said I love working the inside, I use to spar with heavyweights and I break them 80% of the time with bodyshots , I can take their shots pretty good I don't know If I'm a masoquist or I'm just tough lol

If you really boxed and had "trainer(s)", you wouldn't be on here posting this bro.. Go to a gym, learn to fight, spar, have some fights, and your style will come.. There was Thomas Hearns, but theres also been Diego Corrales and Paul Williams.. Every one is different.
