I've been striving to better my boxing skill as of late and one area I've been focusing on is my stance and footwork. I have been using a longer stance, up on the ball of the back foot and when I counter punch I feel very strong. I've recently been toying with a shorter stance that allows me to be a tad more mobile but my punches feel weak because I am up on my toes and I do not feel like I am sitting into my punches. Which stance do you prefer in boxing? Do you prefer a fencing like stance, or a shorter stance, on your toes, on the ball of the back foot, etc.? Also in terms of footwork in sparring, are there any sages in the sport of boxing here that could contribute any tips or secrets? Thanks in advance guys.
