Although I'm still learning my trade... this is how I approach a southpaw

Keep moving to their left, in a circle if you like... jab, jab and then jab some more, if your really brave follow with a left and right hook to the head or body... If you move to their right, you'll leave yourself vulnerable to their heavy left hand, which is the equivalent to the power of your right. Despite this, southpaws are awkward b@stards and really hard to fight.

The secret to fighting southpaws is to punch them more than they punch you. But dont tell anybody, I normally charge for this kind of ingenious advice...........Rockin'

Some advice I can give you, depending on how advanced you are, is to switch your stance as often as needed when fighting a southpaw. I like to show the southpaw I can fight them orthodox or southpaw. And most importantly: use that left hook as often as you can. My favorite move is a basic jab followed my an immediate left hook.

South paws arent a problem to me because of the style my gym teaches; its a switch hitting style that my gym is famous for. We constantly switch, naturally. I'm as comfortable leading with my right as i am with the left. I can't stay orthodox or south paw for any given time. That makes me uncomfortable and feels unnatural. So to me a southpaw is just the same as boxing and orthodox. No special method.

I find them easy to be honest. Once you step to the left and nail them with a right, the dumb *****ez don't know what the **** to do!!!! Don't let them be confusing and they end up being the ones who are confused!

Julio, when fighting a southpaw.. you have to move to your left or you have to move to the southpaw stance left?

You're left, their right to stay away from eating left hands. This is quite basic and any good trainer will tell you what you need to do V southpaws. It is same **** different way

i'm a southpaw. lead rights will do it.... believe me.

same thing we'll do to orthodox fighters... we'll lead left and try to keep our lead foot outside of yours. do the same, but the other way around.

Yeah, move to the outside of their right foot, like everyone says. There's an old boxing myth It's worked well for me but I've had to add to it. Pressure the while on the outside of their right foot and throw combinations, works everytime for me.

Move left. Throw the lead right. Take advantage of human physiology and pound their liver with left hooks to the body (it really really hurts trust me). We lead with our liver take advantage of that.
