Arrow best style for me

Im 54kg, 15 years old and 5ft6 is it best to fight like....

1. Open gloves and moving my head side to side...
2. Normal guard with right hand tucked against cheek...

3. Also should u change ur style halfway through a fight/spar?

4. In amateur should you use the "Mike Tyson bob n' weave"

5. In amateur boxing is it best to fight on the outside or inside?

Any thing i didnt mention what may help me box on the inside and outside feel free to say.

Thanks people

Maybe in your first couple of fights. But to say the ams is just brawling is just wrong. Sorry.

Your coach will know what is best suited for you. Everyone is different. Just get the basics down and worry about style later.

Unfortunately, in the amateurs, in-fighting is hard to score. So many amateurs have become fighters that just throw straight punches to the head. In my opinion, it's best to learn both, you never know who'll you'll be up against.

Yeah man, what Amy said.

Besides, we all wanna fight like Floyd man, but unfortunately, there are a whole lot of ultra tall mother ****ers out there that force us to put our hands up and have to find out a way past that mother ****in jab.

Default Tactics of a Boxer vs. a Swarmer

I recently watched Phillip Holiday vs. Ivan Robinson and it got me thinking. If a guy is pretty much a pure boxer, meaning lots of movement, works off the jab, footwork, fast combinations, but has little power and relies on slickness, how does he face a guy who is a volume punching swarmer?

There aren't a whole lot of guys with this style out there, who just come forward and throw 100 punches per round no matter what.

In that fight, Robinson started off boxing in the early rounds, but could not stay at range behind his jab, was constantly backpedaling and unable to get off because Holiday was coming at him.

After a few rounds, Holiday's tactics completely took Robinson off his game and Ivan ended up coming off his bicycle and getting into a punch count war, playing right into Holiday's hands.

Tactically, Robinson had no answer.

I think this type of fight is the toughest matchup for a pure boxer. What should a guy do? Stick to the jab and move at all costs?

Try and employ more head movement, look for countering opportunities, then clinch when the swarmer flurries?
