I got a question concerning the lead foot in the traditional boxing stance. By "traditional" I'm referring to an angled stance leading with the front shoulder with the torso turned away from the opponent.
I hear trainers and see many pros that have the lead foot pointing towards the opponent. Or the lead foot will be slightly turned. What is the reason/thoughts for this? Does it have to do with greater rotation of the hips?
The reason I ask this is by pointing the foot forward, it seems to make by body turned from being angled to being more square. I know that if I keep my lead foor at 2 close to 3 o'clock it helps keep me from becoming too square. I can keep my upper body angled, by my hips open toward the target...
