Jon: The reason I'm slipping the jab is that I'm trying to move in on him. If I just block/parry, it just means we stay at the range game again.
Ok got ya. Scrapper pretty much nailed it. Think tyson in his day. Come in low, real low, slip the jab to the outside, then close explosively and go hard with body hooks and uppercuts. Think head on chest. When you close he'll probably turn toward you and that will open up his kidneys.

Eat the jab attempting to slip to the outside and throw the right hard. Then he will be more cautious with the jab.
Worked for me last week. It hurts, but sometimes you have to break a few omlets while cooking the eggs.

Thanks Phrost. I have no idea how or why I started it in BS.
And thanks for the advice guys. I'll need to try this next time.

Is this boxing only?

Yeah. If it were MT, I'd really wanna just secure the clinch and not let it go, but with boxing range nerfs me really bad.

If its just Boxing you are kinda screwed. Just get better. You basically asked how do I beat someone that is better than me. Since I don't believe in Chi the answer is you don't.
You're going to have to work on your footwork until its better than his and you can keep yourself inside his reach. Luckily you are boxing so he can't run away forever. Try to figure out which side is his favorite escape. Then put him in the corner and work on shutting down that side. Thats what I try to do when I face a good boxer with a reach advantage. Obviously its hard if he also has better footwork so just plan your ring positioning and keep working.
