Default Left Hook vs Right Hook

Ok now i started boxing at the age of 14, but actualy considered to go to a boxing gym at the age of 16. (i excersiced a lot at home during the 2 year span, and also ran outside)


now i have seen a lot of boxing videos, and all i hear is "Wow what a left hook"

never have i seen a fighter who has a powerful right hook.


could it be that most of the fighters with left hooks are naturally southpaws but fight right handed? A lot of people tell me ODLH is left handed but fights right handed to land power left jabs.

Now I myself am a southpaw, and when i would hit the pads, my dad would always commentate how my left hook is a machine gun and my dad would always wear a huge cloth around his wrists so i wouldnt break them lol.

Yea thats just my question. I just find Right hooks rare.

A right hook from an orthodox fighter is a difficult punch to land. The strong-side hook takes a long time to land, and it travels along a wide arc that makes it easy to slip or parry. A short right hook, however, is an indispensable part of an infighter's toolbox. Dempsey and Marciano had devastating right hooks.

As for southpaws with wicked right (lead) hooks, check out Winky Wright and Prince Naseem Hamed.
