3 Tips to Learn How to Fight Southpaws

Learning how to fight southpaws can be tricky for many boxers. That's because there simply aren't that many lefty's out there. The majority of the time in training and in your fights you are facing a conventional fighter. You can't use the same tactics against a southpaw that you would against a normal fighter.
