I am working with an athletic south paw light heavy, 2nd pro fight coming up. He has a great left hand, like a lot of south paws he is not active with the jab but when he throws it, particularly to the body ,it is heavy. He is also primarily a counter puncher but he is working on that and when he is active, he is hard to deal with. He is comfortable fighting inside, 6' but probably 73-74" inch reach, tough, good guard but can get a little stuck at times, the guard is high and tight and if he doesn't move, he can't get off.
He has sparred with some top 20 guys, holds his own an shows his potential but he has a habit he is trying to break. He often goes where the experienced guy wants him to go and ends up fighting where the guy wants to fight. He feels crowded, bumps back to counter and eventually has backed up more than he wants to. Or, he feels the opening to the left so he pivots that way. He does okay wherever he fights but he often lets his opponent dictate where the fight will happen.
Give me something besides outside foot position(or hand) against an orthodox guy. He won't fight the foot position battle all night, he is comfortable going left.
