    I was recently at a buddy's house drinking and there was this fat guy maybe 5'3 250lbs talking ****. Myself I am only around 135 5'10 ish.We were both sitting on a couch and I just felt it in my gut a fight was about to pop off. I started swinging like a mad man and eventually this guy got my into a frontal shot hold where I was facing him on the couch.He started throwing hooks using his left hand which I managed to cover up pretty well.My face miraculously came out completely unharmed and he must have hit me around 3 or 4 times total but no matter what I did I could not escape the headlock.One of my buddies came to let me lose and the few punches the guy did land where in my forehead.My thumbnail came off because of the guys weight so I did have to go to the hospital(they had to push it back in).However,the guy had a mouth full of blood and I did feel like I took the dubs but only because my buddy was there to break the lock.Does anyone have any advice on what could be done differently in a similar situation?(besides avoid the fight lol)

    1. Avoid the fight (sorry had 2)
    2.You found out 2 things most people who train boxing do and that is 1) There are no weight classes outside and even if you train a bigger guy can manhandle you if he gets a hold of you. 2) boxing is a sport and isn't 'Real fighting'. You can get kicked, grappled with (the headlock etc) if you want to avoid that happening. Look into grappling sports. If you knew basic Jiu Jitsu you would know how to get out of a headlock.

    3. If you are about 7 inches taller then someone you must have a MASSIVE reach advantage if you had a feeling a fight was going to pop off with him you shouldn't let him get close enough to grab a hold of you. You should have avoided the fight but if pride/ ego wont let you do that then at least recognise danger and be prepared

    Well I guess I let the drinking get to me. My friend said I misremembered the fight and I ended up hitting the other guy 15-20 times and he only got me twice.My friend got me out of the chokehold and during that period the guy hit me two or three times. How can you use a reach advantage in an enclosed area though?

    You weren't in an enclosed area (I.E phone booth or closet) you might not have space for fancy footwork or hell even be out of his punching range but no reason to be so close a man can use his 5'3s frame's t-rex arms to get a hold of you and apply a headlock/ choke hold.

    Well it was inside a trailer with furniture lol.If he starts charging the space was extremely limited.Guy only got me 3 times total but he had such a weight advantage that I would have been ****ed without my buddy.Its weird because the guy is fat and out of shape but weight is weight right?Ive thought about getting into Jui Jitsu but that grappling **** doesn't really turn me on as much as boxing does.Seems like alot of street fights are grappling heavy though.

    Weight is weight.

    To be honest all real fights are grabbling heavy.

    Let me put it this way. How often do you see Knockouts in boxing? They are rare (when you take into account the amount of boxing fights there is) and that is from professionals. In the street your chances of knocking someone out before they get to you are slim but like you saw in your fight it isn't that hard to subdue someone if you are stronger or have some training

    Break a bottle on his dome next time. Always drink beer in a bottle.

    It would be a good idea to get that looked at by a doctor and maybe have some tests done.
