In his fight versus Dawson this weekend, he kept his left hand on top of his forehead and his elbow up for most of the fight. I haven't followed boxing all that much so that was his first full fight I've seen. From highlights it looks like he likes to keep a high guard but I've never seen him with a guard like that before. Is this a strategy that is commonly used for southpaws? He didn't have to worry about a jab to the body from the southpaw dawson, and his left elbow easily blocked Dawson's hooks and jabs, while he picked off the right hand with his own right hand, It seemed really effective (even though the judges scored in favor of Dawson), and my question is would that be effective against an orthadox fighter? You could pick off the jabs with the right hand and block right straights with the elbow.
