He's a converted southpaw, meaning he's learning to utilize the dynamite in both hands.

If he is a converted southpaw dose that mean that he is naturally left handed ? .

if he uses the orthadox style then he would be right handed, but i see him change often to southpaw. if he is righty then he must have worked endlessly on his left hand. also if he is a coverted southpaw that does mean he is a lefty. I'm confused Rolling Eyes

right handed.............he could punch with both hands.........but if he was holding a pen it would be in his right hand

thats like me I can swith up style and be square like tyson and still be able to hurt u with both hands but i'm a right hander. If u notice in some of tyson's old fights in the 80s that he turns southpaw for certain hits thats more powerful in the hand and vise versa for the opposite.

IF MIKE IS A CONVERTED OUTHPAW THAT WOULD MEAN HE IS A LEFTY NATURALLY BECAUSE U LEAD WITH YOUR WEAK HAND TO SET UP THE POWER PUNCH. WHICH WOULD BE HIS LEFT HAND FOR POWER. RIGHT ?

I'm not sure about Mike, but MOST converted southpaws are lefties (write and such with left hand). I've heard some reporter say that Tyson, unlike most converted southpaws, can crush you with either hand. Which would suggest that Tyson is naturally a lefty.
As for myself, I box southpaw, but I'm not a lefty, I write and do everything with my right hand.

Mike can indeed knock people out with both hands.
But i think he once said in a post-fight interview his right is his hardest punch (but he can never use it often because his left hook connects more often and already knocks people out).

Mike is right handed & is definately not a converted southpaw.
