your liver is on your front side, so people can hit it

right hands will hit you easier

your padholders might not be as good at holding pads for you

you're probably left handed, so you smudge your own writing

advantages:

people will be scared to fight you

you will make guys looks awkward

you will be able to land your power hand easier

One of the main things is as a Southpaw, you generally will fight orthodoc fighters, so you will likely be very comfortable with it where as orthodox fighters don't fight southpaws very often, so they tend to be less experienced.

I personally love fighting southpaws. Right hands all day

as southpaws, we are said to be more creative.

Advantage: You will frustrate orthodox boxers by smothering their attack attempts.

Disadvantage: A good lead left hook will have it's way with you like Ben Roethlisberger.

You arent ambidextrous, you are left handed and you were forced to perform tasks with your right hand during school. Stop lying and go smudge your writing some more leftie.

Back onto southpaws though, they have much more practice against orthadox fighters than orthadox fighters do against southpaws. This includes circling and footwork, not to mention distance. You will have more practice hitting at the angles then your opponent will.

Disadvantage is though, your liver is like, right there. It hurts to gget hit, UGH. *switches back to orthadox*

No, before going to school actually. Even then, I can do activities with either hand and I prefer the righthand. Hence, ambidextrous.... "right on both sides".

You just salty.
