Yea, and if you had a gun you would stand weak foot forward, but you dont have either, you're boxing.

Funnily enough its totally reverse for me - I am left handed - but can only use orthodox stance.

Since I have never boxed(only done Shotokan Karate) - but have played tennis and badminton for many years - i have always found that I had an advantage that way - and it has never failed.

I dont know if you can compare these things into boxing, but I would like to think that they have an advantage over orthodox, since they are obviously schooled more to box these guys - however - I think they become more confused, when they meet another south paw, that an orthodox would be.

Btw - Kessler is ambidexterous also - but i have never seen him shift stances.

I've always considered that a waste.
