you should take a look at me mate in the gym. im left handed, but basically grew up doing a lot of stuff right handed, golf, tennis etc. then i started boxing and basically im a half right half southpaw. my straight left is good, my left hook is ok, my right hook is maybe my best shot, but leaves me off balance, i cant upper cut or hook to the body good with the left, but can really well with the right, but my right straight out of a conventional stance is soft as shite and inaccurate

When you're throwing the right hand are you crossing over a lot, mate? Either you're crossing over too much or overextending and coursing you to go off balance.

i think its something to do with my lead foot, when i hook in a conventional stance it seems more weight is on my front foot meaning i can get the timing of the shift in my feet and hips wheras on my right it looks very manufactured (to the point the coach in the gym was actually holding parts of my body as I was throwing it in the mirror) and because of my weight being distributed badly my hook turns into a quasi upper cutt / hook.

its not like im gona be a world champion anyway haha but it will make me feel better when im shadow boxing at the gym whilst the 9 year olds on either side put my technique to shame

Ahh, the old fighting too heavy off the front foot flaw, that's very common. Don't worry about that mate. I've seen even pro's doing that. Very good ones at that.

Try to improve your balance.

My right hand stings, my jab is sharp.

My left hook makes Paulie Malignaggi look like Julian Jackson

So my left arm and right leg are the stronger limbs but my right arm is far off. my left leg is way off.
I'll get back to you on that, mate. It requires deep thought.

It doesn't matter though, Flea. When you've got a legendary chin like you have. Walk through EVERYTHING. Granite!

Luke has seen the chin in action. He'll tell his grandkids someday that he saw a 'prime' ATG chin in the flesh.

I've trained a friend like that recently - it's obviously very akward but I just told him to keep his limbs as loose as possible (which you should do to anyway really) and try not to think consciously about it too much if possible - after months of practice he seems to be alright in that area now.

I don't think there is much you can do about other than practice and get used to it.

I think right-handed southpaws are more common these days than left-handed orthodox

Whe I turn southpaw I have so much snap in my left cross even though my right is my strong hand.

Just returning to the Leonard/Pryor thing fellas. Check this vid out (start from the 11:30 mark). Pryor admitting he was offered the Leonard fight and refused a career high payday. Notice also that he's flanked by Leonards former trainer Dave Jacobs, who knows just how good Ray Leonard is and advises Pryor to stay at 140 or even go back down to 135.

I think it should be well known about this part of the Leonard/Pryor affair.

Leonard certainly didn't duck him as some continue to say.
