Timeing a simple jab, stepping and landing a huge punch like the one in the Maccarinelli fight is going to make him think twice about throwing it again, and therefore you are limiting his range finder and reach to an extent.
theres no need to turn southpaw just throw a right lead over the top works good but takes alot of practise and you can follow it up with a left hook, its a great move

or throwing your own jab short then stepping in with straight right on their jaw can make guys think about it
