your personal style evolution.
if there's anything i learned about boxing, it truly is a journey of self discovery, you hear of sluggers, boxers, outfighters, infighters, swarmers, blood and guts fighters lol and you've probably tried them all trying to figure out what fits you. i believe these style are extensions of your personality. would you say your personality matches up with your style?
i guess this is for anyone who has gone through a change of fighting style over the years. when you watch boxing, you see a myriad of styles on display from fighters of different shapes, sizes, cultural backgrounds etc. so my question to you amateur boxers is who or what did you try to emulate when you first started boxing? and what style are you using now/retired with? why did you use the initial style and why did you change it? and what were the results of that style change?

lol i was trying to imitate ali when i first started, developed my style as a boxer-puncher since i had pretty good power and hand speed but wasnt so fast on my feet
really comfortable with it though and it really suits me

I typically write a lot but I really don't want to so. In short.
I started Orthodox. Went southpaw. Now I switch hit. Use both equally well.
I used to bounce around a lot because of TKD training. But now I don't. I only move when I have to. That goes for both stances but I am noticeably more stationary Orthodox.
Southpaw: Counter-punch oriented. Fleet of foot. Slip and parry. (best way i can describe it). Right hand does more work.
Orthodox: Rather stationary. Jab to start combos. More power punching in this stance.
I write this but my style, I can't describe it perfectly. Nor do I like to compare it to other boxers. I do what comes natural in a learned way. That about sums it up.

I used to jump around a lot because of TKD exercising. But now I don't. I only shift when I have to. That goes for both stances but I am clearly more fixed Traditional.
