I know he had great power in both hands, but since he had an AWESOME left hook, and most converted southpaws have very good left hooks (cotto, DLH, Donaire, and I THINK Joe Frazier) I was wondering if SRR was a converted southpaw?

Wasn't he listed as an orthodox fighter originally?

I'm pretty sure he's a righty.

he was right handed


the hook has more to do with the rest of the body than any other punch, other than the jab.
it's about transferring weight and using the bigger muscles (hips, butt [biggest muscle on the body... something to think about haha,] legs, etc.

if you are relying on your dominant hand and arm to throw your hook you're in trouble, and wont be generating any real power any time soon.


you still confident on that kessler over bute bet?:boxing:

I'm thinkin bute's gonna bang those ribs like a glockenspiel
