I'll have to rewatch this one myself, Tin_Ribs. It's important to note that Marco at this point was only a baby at 20 and that he had failed to make weight. He started fighting at 122lbs after this bout. There isn't too much evidence to suggest Marco struggled with southpaws. Manny Pacquiao is Manny Pacquiao.
That was my point mate. I don't think the southpaw stance in and of itself bothered him either, just that Salazar and Valbuena (iirc) made very specific use of it with spoiling tactics.
