Default Which side do you lean on during clinch?

During the clinch or infighting, which side to you tend to lean toward? As an orthodox fighter facing another orthodox fighter, is it more advantageous to lean to the left (his right shoulder) or the right (his left shoulder), or does it not matter? Or does it depend on what your opponent's strenghs are? Any insights would be appreciated.

lean to the side where you feel you have better balance. I tend to lean to the right. Lean to the side where he doesnt hit you. If you lean to your right and he is smashing you with left uppercuts dont lean there the next time.

I lean to the right, it means you can slip your head under their chin.

If you are right-handed, lean with your left shoulder to give yourself some room for the uppercut.

I'd say his left/yourright. Shouldn't go towards his power.

I usually lean to my right. Feels better when trying to back the guy up. Also, my left arm is pressing on both of his arms, and my head is protected by his head. It's a tough position to punch from, but it's hard for him to hit you as well. I usually wait for him to throw a right hook, then I duck it and counter. If he tries to square up, he's open for uppercuts to the head and body.

Lean forward so I can pul back with a short hook.
Maybe knock him out.
