Just a question on boxing theory. Normally in a situation of height disparity beyond two inches, the taller man is 'boxing tall', which means that he's using his superior reach to attack while simeltaneously using his feet to stay out of the shorter mans punching range. He uses straight shots and keeps the shorter man at a safe distance, which normally involves constant backpedalling.
The jab helps the taller man here by both blinding the shorter man before deciding to come in, or by keeping him 'out'. But would the jab help the shorter man at all? Wouldn't he just focus more on power and accuracy since he's already beat in terms of range finding?
I'd normally ask my coach this but I'm too injured to box currently.
