Default true or false

i was reading somewhere that you should keep 55% of weight on backfoot. i thought you keep it on your front foot. what is true? i know you should bend your back leg more than your front but idk where more weight should go.

False. Keep your weight evenly distributed, who knows where and when you'll have to move.

Bend your back leg more? Um dude, who's been teaching you this? If it's a "trainer", they might need some training themself.

no my coach didnt teach me 2 do this. i just got a bunch of boxing books and manauls to supplement my learning and heres what it says
Lead foot- approximately 12-18 inches in front of the back
foot and slightly turned-in (about 35 degrees).
Feet- approximately a shoulder’s width apart. With a slight
open stance (rear foot kicked out six to eight inches to the
outside of the stance). This gives our stance balance and
stability in all directions (i.e. against straight-arm and bentarm
punches).
Front knee-flexed but not bent.
Back knee-bent
Heel-raised slightly off ground so that you can slip a piece of
paper under your heels.
Balance – on the balls of both feet.
Weight--There should be slightly more weight on the rear
foot—about 55-45 split.

also i keep my hels of the ground a little more than that
