The Max Baewr school says "you are in the ring with one crazy dude and you don't know what he is going to do next".
The Jack Johnson school says "I don't think much of you as a fighter, and I am just being polite to you before I subject you to the most hideous beating".
you forgot the De la Hoya school, which promotes a staredow with the ceiling
