Default Re: Is there any Benifit In Being A Right Handed SouthPaw?

Many coaches don't like the idea of switching stances, however i think it'll become more necessary and required to become an outstanding boxer as seen in many boxers today.

Fighting out of southpaw as a right handed boxer or squaring up allows you to throw more vicious hooks/uppercuts with your right hand without getting off-balance and reduces the distance between you and the target.

Check out mike tyson. When he gets his opponent on the ropes, he sometimes changes to a south paw stance and delivers the right hook to the body, followed by the right uppercut to the chin. ( he also does this with the left hand )
