Hi
Ive just started boxing at my local amateur boxing club and would like someone with more experience to clarify something.

I am 182 cm (72 inches) in height, but I have a reach of 190 cm (75 inches). Is this considered a good reach or just average? I'm wondering cos I like to fight on the outside, and wanted to know how much use my jab will be to me.

You actually have a pretty good reach, you will be able to use your jab to your jab to your advantage :thumbsup::thumbsup:.

is it possibly to have 75 inch arms? you said you're 72 inches tall how do you have longer arms than you're body :confused:

NFFC is right guys, Reach is measured from the tip of one arm to the tip of the other (kinda like wingspan), it's not the length of one arm.

But kudos on the humour haha, made me laugh.
