Also the fact that in a lefty-righty matchup, both are able to throw punches without the typical tying up you see from righty-righty or lefty-lefty matchups.
Southpaws are a rare breed and fighting them is difficult-even for other southpaws. There are so few of them that they present instant matchup issues.
Yeah! for sure. We live in a right-handed world. Leftys are definitely the exception rather than the rule. I believe statistically they make up 10% of the entire population of the earth. To offset those leftys like in boxing, though it may seem counter-intuitive u wanna circle to his left therefor negating his wheelhouse then try and grab that chest/shoulder protector - Even myself, as righty when I turn a bicycle, motorcycle, car, skates, I am much more sure going to my left, when going right my depth perception, sense of spacing, seems a bit off -
