Default Can you name some high % combos for a southpaw?

Ok Im pretty much the same height build weight and reach as Joe Calzagge. Im also a southpaw and have a smiler boxing stance.

I spar alot of taller guys with longer reach and also short stocky guys with no reach that have a more square on stance and I also spar with heavyweights. (For some reason in my gym theres only the two extremes tall and short im the only one in the middle) They are all orthadox fighters. My trainer donst teach me anything southpaw specific.

Everytime your opponent throws a left jab, slip the jab to your right and at the same time drop a straight left to the chin.
Try to time it, and step in at the same time.

Its about as simple as it can get (not rocket science).
I didnt invent this.
It is a counter for an orthodox left jab.
One more time,
as you throw/counter with your staight southpaw left,
and as you step in,
slip the incoming jab to the outside (your right/his left).
The jab should just pass over your left shoulder.
This allows your to follow thru and bury your southpaw left on the orthodox fighters chin.
Must be done quickly.
Time it.

Your right about one thing.
The same can be done to a southpaw.
I would double and triple jab to make it more difficult to be countered.
What would you do ???
Now,
when you get a orthodox right hand lead, vs. a southpaw lefthand lead,
if your the southpaw, you have to beat him to the punch, throwing your straight left inside his straight right.
Now there are alot of other things that help one be successful like controling your distance, being in the right position, speed and timing.
Thats where a coach can help you provided both are willing to put in the time.

Sorry yea I meant if he leads with straight right + slip how do you counter that.

Really good advice I appreciate it!

Last question if you like... how do you use the lead hook as a counter or is it best used as a follow up to the rear cross?

Southpaw Rt. hook.
1) Much easier to use right after your southpaw straight left because after your lead straight left, your in position with your weight on your front rt. foot. Thats were your weight has to be to throw your rt. hook, especially if you want some power on it.
2) Now if your fighting inside and your leaning forward on your opponent, then you just pull back and throw you rt. hook at the same time.
3) From the outside, you can hook off your right jab.
As you bring your jab back, lean forward transferring your weight to your from foot, then pull back with your right hook. This must be done quickly and will take some practice on the bag or pads.
4) As a counter, you can slip your opponents right jab by leaning mostly forward letting his jab go over your left shoulder. Now your in position to pull back with your rt. hook. This most likely is more difficult and will require practice on the pads. A good trainer helps.

roids thn you touch him with the jab the tripple underhooking shovel jab works, or the tripple shovel hooking under jabbing uppercut. Those are two fire shots to get 100%% guarenteed
