Default Can you use "checking hooks" on guys with longer arms than you?

I watched mayweather use these against ricky hatten and I use them in sparring too, they are so awesome against a shorter reached aggressive pressure fighter.

You basically hook and pivot as you retreat and they advance, this hits them as you get out the way, and sets you up angle wise for the next shot.

The problem is, what if they are an aggressive fighter that has longer arms than you do?

Will this only work on short stocky, short ranged people?

Or can it be applied to taller longer ranged opponents also? If so how?

If you can bait them to lead and give up their height, you can time it with a backstep and/or real short inside as they throw a looping shot.
