The angles are what i like about southpaw its fun cus makes your opponent think ok now whats coming at me now.and it opens their liver up for your power side.ala mirco cro cop body shot
Yeah he said he wasn't being trained southpaw but wanted to learn. I love the jab because I use it so much. If they haven't trained against a southpaw they aren't used to that jab coming straight at them from the left side, so they don't know how to react to it. Then I can fain the jab and setup other strikes off the faint.

I also like to jab with the right and then throw a hook with the right, right after the jab as well. It takes a little while to get used to and to get the movement fast, but most people don't expect something to come at them from the same side after a jab from the side the jab` has been throw. I don' know if that makes sense, a little hard to explain without showing.

I love that combo, but it takes awhile to get it down. Or I do like Mirko and faint the jab and shoot the kick out there like you said.

And its not that easy to just switch and think that you will automatically be able to make the switch. So I would try and get great at fighting out of orthodox then try and switch to southpaw.

Now I can fight out of both, but thats because I actually started boxing out of southpaw even though I am right handed. So I learned that and then went to learn my more natural orthodox stance. Learning both is great, but IMO you need to be great at one before moving to the other because of how different things are.
I am also a boxer, I started at southpaw even though im a righty.

Basically what he said, hes right.
