    Default Fighting someone who pivots to his left

    In a couple of weeks I'm fighting someone who likes to pivot to his left as you come in. Would fients and then a sidestep with a right cross be the best way to catch him as he looks like his gonna be hard to pin down

    Feinting would be a good way to set up a shot, but try to not make it a routine as he may catch on during the fight. Keep in mind if he's pivoting he could be setting you up as you move in to counter your shot with a straight right. But all of that is depending on how you like to fight. I love the jab, so I'd take center of the ring and stuff that jab in his face as he makes his pivot to disrupt his movement and watch out for the straight right or the hook.

    good luck!

    I hate to really even touch this question because there are alot of unknown variables but if he is moving to his left that is prolly the angle he is comfortable attacking at. Does he swarm from that angle? Is he orthadox? Counter puncher? Now of course your right is gonna be there but but dont sell it of course. The classic and most simple counter to someone who is moving to thier left is to take your right foot and take one step to the outside and throw the straight right and they will run right into it. But of course its not always that simple.

    Watch the fight between Buddy McGirt and Howard Davis Jr, and watch the tape made for the computer fight between Marciano and Ali. watch how marciano (they actually sparred a bunch of rounds for 'fight' footage) shades himself toward Ali's left at all times, keeping his head outside the jab. That gives him an angle for the right hand to the head or body when Ali tries to pivot out to his own left.
    You'll be much better off if you can make him pivot into you, rather than around you.
