    I hear about how important it is to establish lead foot dominance in an orthodox-southpaw matchup.

    How do you establish lead foot dominance?

    You have to understand that just about every 'truth' about fighting southpaws is based on bad logic. Like the idea that you rely on your lead right....

    Getting your lead foot outside of his gives you a line for your right hand and an angle for your hook to his body. Stepping inside with your lead foot opens up your jab. It will also encourage him to throw his straight left and you can counter it with your hook or right uppercut to the body.

    You establish "lead foot dominance" by knowing where you are going to step, and what you hope to accomplish by doing so.
