This isn't abnormal at all. I'm a converted southpaw myself, as have been plenty of great fighters (Hagler, Wright, Pacquiao).

It's certainly not normal but it's not that unusual.

You'll also find left handed people who fight orthodox such as Miguel Cotto and Oscar de la Hoya.

It's a good thing, you should have a good jab and right hook since your strong hand will be forward.

He writes right-handed, but I think he's a bit more ambidextrous than most.

I remember Freddie saying that Manny signs autographs with his left and then his right hand to give each hand a rest because he signs a ridiculous amount of autographs.

Yup pretty normal. you probably feel more confident having the arm you control better in front. That's mainly why I chose to train in southpaw stance, relying more on the jab and the lead hand and trying to improve the strength and control of my left in the meantime.

it is normal, i would reccomend u try to learn the orthodox way though. being a unnatural southpaw it will take alot of work improving your left hand so u wont be a one handed fighter, thats how most ppl fighting in the "wrong" stance end up. i would reccomend u fight orthodox and if lefty really comes natural then switch every now and then, be a switchhitter. but if lefty is your main stance it will make for alot of extra work.
