Terence Crawford Breakdown and Skill Study
Terence ‘Bud’ Crawford || Breakdown • Skill Study • Highlights, The Switch Science. Terence ‘Bud’ Crawford is known for his defensive skills, exceptionally fast hand speed, punching power. And the ability to comfortably switch-hit from orthodox to southpaw (though he is listed as orthodox).
In boxing and in MMA, switch-hitting refers to the ability to change boxing stances mid-fight. Between an orthodox and a southpaw stance. In baseball, a switch hitter is a player who bats both right-handed and left-handed. Usually right-handed against left-handed pitchers and left-handed against right-handed pitchers.
The combat sport approach to switch-hitting isn’t usually as cut and dry, and with Crawford, it is a scientific approach to superior angle dominance. Often going southpaw against southpaws, due to it being the rarest of the stance differentials.
For long-time followers, you’ll know that I have an affinity for ambidexterity (as I myself am, as was my earliest combat sports influence, Marvin Hagler). It doesn’t mean the fighter is necessarily ambidextrous in all facets of life, but it is certainly something advantageous for the fighter.
Currently, Crawford is ranked as the world’s best active boxer, pound for pound, by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, second by The Ring (magazine), and third by E/S/P/N.
