    Default Stance Switching?

    This is a really broad question, but what's everyone's opinion on switching your stance midfight. I find myself doing it a lot when I spar with friends, but never really see pros doing it, so it cant be that good of a thing.
    Boxing is like a handjob, and MMA is like a hot sweaty orgy with 5 chicks. I could never say no to a handjob, but which would you rather have?

    I think it is a mistake in almost every case and for almost every fighter. Anybody that has done this long enough- hitting the bags, working out in gyms, etc..- has at some time or another become bored and taught themselves to box from the other side; and while you can do it there is never any illusion as to thinking you are proficient enough to do it for real. ( there are exceptions like Hagler or Chiquita Gonzalez, two that come to mind and even at that level they were better leftie than orthodox) The majority of times you see a fightwer switch mid-fight it is he that is either already confused and out of ideas, or about to be. The other evening I saw a guy box a smart and effective round 1, then come out southpaw for 2 and proceed to lose the fight. I think a boxer, and especially a young boxer, would be better served mastering one stance and all implied in that instead of trying to be confused. If anybody still remembered 'side-stepping' much less how to teach it this whole concept of "switching stances" would be pointless.

    Morales switched for the last round against Manny and got his ass kicked. Don't switch... there is no need.
