When you move back you have to lift your back foot first, which means your weight will temporarily be on the front foot. But then again you will be "falling" backwards so ... I'm sure your coach has told you how to move in boxing? Whatever way you go, that foot moves first. If you move to your left, the left leg moves first, the right one follows. Same goes for every other direction.
