    Canelo is shorter than you and one of the highest paid boxers in the world today. Do you think it was useful for him?

    I genuinely don’t understand the point in learning to fight as a midget. People act like 5’9 is average but the average white dude is like 6’1 nowadays. The only thing short guys can really do to protect themselves is be skinny and good at running.

      Even if a guy is way too big for you to submit on your own, martial arts can prevent the bigger dude from outright killing you or give you the chance to escape. It’s absolutely worthwhile

    Being a fatass will help you if you're short in a fight, if your opponent can't throw you around as easily and you're strong as well you have an advantage.
    Boxing is mostly worthless for actual fighting. Do MMA or Judo instead, learn to throw your opponents and do a fuck ton of deadlifts and squat.

    Boxing is God tier cardio and since most fights are over within 1 punch or 2 it pays to be the one who knows how to actually throw a punch.

    Most men have no idea how to fight so Amy bit of experience you can get is a huge advantage for you. And as for the lanklet in the thread, I'm 6 foot and I hate sparring manlets, I'd much rather fight someone my own size or taller

    Judo is fun, cheap and generally has good coaches (at least in Aus as you're required to compete to qualify for black belt) because you can't LARP it.

    Any non-meme style works for any body. Just find a dude similar build to you and incorporate the tactics they use. As a lanklet muay thaifag i really like dieselnoi and samart. If i were a manlet using their tactics would be retarded so I'd look at saenchai, nong-o or lerdsila. The same works for any style.

    Bigger guys are annoying as fuck to fight, especially since I prefer to fight on the outside, but you can still win up to a point, and I can generally do so against guys who are at least 3-4 inches taller than me. The only guy I can't do shit against at my gym is like 6'5 and has like 60 lbs of lean mass on me. Granted, he's also fast and technical to a point that even some of our coaches have trouble against him.

        I hate infighting, and it's definitely my weak point. I have a hard time just getting in range because his jabs and kicks literally knock me back or break through my guard/checks. If I get in close, I have to worry about eating a knee, and the last time that landed flush, my ribs were bruised for like a month afterward.

          you always need courage in pressure/inside fighting, and stick to all the principles of it (use every hit as an opportunity to go forward and return it with more volume, never go backwards etc.) and you'll get hit less. if you go backwards on a jab you're letting the lanklet get away with a free roundhouse kick right where he has the most power and you have to start over. learn to parry the jab, overhand rights, inside leg kicks, etc.
