Default Fighters that were great against southpaws..

I think Mayweather Jr is one of those....he always fight very well against southpaws, that right hand always is impressive against them....

Anyone else ?

Kostya Tszyu handled southpaws with relative ease - including Judah, Rodriguez, Mitchell twice, Chaves.

Harry Greb. Being a southpaw never did a fighter any good against him. Beat Al McCoy and Johnny Wilson several times apiece and lost controversially to Tiger Flowers twice when well past his best.

Tsyu for sure. He was excellent at setting up that laser-guided icbm of a right hand.

Mayweather has had problems with southpaws in the past, most notably Judah. In fact taht was one of the things that made Mayweather V Pacquiao an interesting match up. We didn't get to see much from Ortiz the tree but it appeared Floyd was catching him flush at will with that lead right hand. I was so pissed I paid for that fight lol
