Default Greatest Othodox/Southpaw combination boxer...

Who is the greatest Orthodox/Southpaw combination boxer ever... I have no clue, thats why I am asking. I am a Cotto fan and noticed that when he feels his oppenent is hurt, he switch's to southpaw. He is natural lefty.

From memory Hagler did that a lot. Wasn't sure how effective he was as an othodox boxer.

I think you did. I was asking who can switch in a wink of an eye without issue... Not combos.

I got to see more Hagler fights... I never really have seen any boxers do this well.

I tried it at the gym the other day and for some reason (I'm orthodox), southpaw seems natural to me. I might not have as much power in my left, but its still effective. I can throw way better combos fighting southpaw, then I can switch to ortho.

Witters fantastic at switching from 1 stance to another, dont sleep on him he may go on to be great

Tyson was great from either stance

Well then still stick by RJ, when he switched to a southpaw stance he was still very effective, dont think he was the greatest, but he was very good at it

You do realize the magic number for the Sox is down to 2 right? So any combo of Yanks losses or Sox wins totalling 2 and they clinch.

Ya wanna concede yet.....

(plus, looks like Manny should be close to 100% by playoff time..... )
