Is there any benefit for southpaws to drop their left hand when they shoot their right jab? I notice manny always does this.

Yeah ive noticed it too, his left drops to about lower chest level

Someone with a good right could exploit that, step to the right and fire!

Maybe so he maintains visual on left side? Or maybe coz he comes in so fast no ones gonna capitalise on that?
I don't see benefit for us mortal boxers :P

Southpaws aren't southpaws no more once you get them on the inside. I hated being swarmed. How is your inside game?

It's a bad habit unless you have the reflex and speed to use it as bait and capitalize with a counter.
