I'm a total ignoramus when it comes to boxing, so apologies for what is potentially a white belt thread. One thing I've noticed about Conor McGregor's boxing is his stance. I don't recall seeing anything like it. I don't understand how he makes it work. He has a really long stance, a huge distance between his feet, and he stands really sideways. His cross has to travel a long way before it hits its mark, but it's possibly his most powerful weapon. So what do you call it? Who came up with this stance? Are there any boxing originals I can study to learn more about how it works? I guess it's similar to the Crab, in the simple fact that the feet are pointing more sideways rather than towards the opponent. But where Mayweather's Crab is fairly upright and short, McGregor has a really long stance, like something you would see in taekwon-do or karate. Can someone please illuminate me?
