If someone were to come along and tell Winky or Pernell, that they are doing it all wrong and try to teach them how to do things correctly it would take something from them, where they once would let their punches and moves flow, now they would have to think about what they are doing, if someone were to correct them. Pernell, Winky, Ali, Calzaghe, Hamed, Emmanuel Augustus, and many others did things that would probably drive coaches crazy but dumb as it looked it worked for them.
That's definitely not the case- George Benton trained Whitaker and they are virtual clones of each other.
