Lot of guys use this as an excuse for losing/not learning. Not saying that's you, but I hear it so often it makes me when I hear it.

Tyson's style worked fine for the amateurs, btw. The fact he even made it to the national level shows that.

stance will have defensive and/or offensive flaws. Also, there may be
variations in your stance and style.

From my own experience, I once had two bouts in one night.
and used different stances, styles and execution of punches
for each opponent. You "gotta" do what you "gotta" due to
give you the edge and improving the odds of winning. :vonne****
