Taking punches.. Weight on your back foot?

Im an othordox fighter. So in order to absorb punches and have more power in my own punches my weight should be on my right foot? Correct?

I have found that by fighting with 60% of my weight on the front foot i have better head movement and can put power in both hands. The only time i will put weight more weight on my back foot is when I want to draw a punch in and counter with a quick front side hook or side kick.
