Southpaw

Left-handed boxers are usually taught to fight in a southpaw stance, but right-handed fighters also fight in the southpaw stance. This may give the southpaw fighter a strategic advantage because of the tactical and cognitive difficulties of coping with a fighter who moves in a mirror-reverse of the norm. One reason some left-handed fighters are brought up fighting in the orthodox stance is because of a perception that boxing from an atypical stance would be a disadvantage to the fighter. Another reason some left-handed fighters are brought up fighting in the orthodox stance is due to the limited number of trainers who specialize in training the southpaw stance.

Orthadox

An orthodox stance is a way of positioning both the feet and hands in combat sports such asboxing,karate,kickboxing and mixed martial arts. A traditional orthodox stance is one in which the boxer places his left foot further in front of the right foot, thus having his weaker side closer to the opponent. As it favors the stronger, dominant side—often the right side, sew laterality—the orthodox stance is the most common stance in boxing. It is mostly used by right-handed boxers
