Default ever double up right cross?

I was told that it is never a good idea to double up on the right cross or straight right, but watched Pacquiao double up on his straight left against De La Hoya with success. Just wondering if any of you have done this during sparring or in competition? Thanks in advance. -WIB

Well, First of all, I donīt recommend new boxers to do it, then IF you do it make sure your oponent is in the right position for it,( Unbalanced, not able to punch back, etc etc) and not that good to start with. Then remember that the top pros are just that top pros.
I have seen Sugar Ray triple his right hand and I tried it as well in sparring, but my oponent was no Oscar de la Hoya thatīs for sure. If it would have been iīm sure HE would have tripled his right hand against me. he he he!
So generally, donīt do it.
IMO

I do it quite often. Double jab, double right, end with a left hook and step to the side.

If you have the control and experience to do it, why not?

Doubling up on any punches is good but it's about doing it at the right time and and not eating a counter for your troubles.

it worked for a kid i was helping out in a gym, but it was advice only given as his opponent was backing up in a straight line with his hands down and it worked in that instant but that is the only time i have given that advice

I was thinking the same thing as ^^^^

But yeah, its not an orthodox combo but if u can land it then why not? If his head is right there and it's screaming for a 2nd right then fkn go for it!

Not an easy one to land, and it can be easy to counter.

The likes of Pacquaio and Floyd can get away with it because they have damn near perfect footwork, and some of the fastest hands in the game.

I wouldn't generally recommend it to a novice fighter, but it is a valuable progression to be able to double up on certain shots. If I do introduce it to someone, I like to get them to feint a jab in between the rights, and as their form improves, just concentrate on landing the two right's.

I often double up on the right hand especially against southpaws. I actually double up on anything that lands as it's often still open.

I've had some success doubling up on the right, after the jab on southpaws. Just have to make sure you close the gap, and slip to side when doubling up.

So jab, (stepping in) straight right, straight right. Give it a go on a southpaw in sparring and so how it goes.

As soon as you throw the first one make sure your left is back to your chin when you make the second rotation for the punch.
