Obviously it all depends on the outcome, as the outcome is dependant on whether or not you've used an intelligent system for whatever your method of attack.
Intelligent pressure=cutting off the ring (another trick you're probably unaware of) , economizing your attack between head and body, defending adequately with either head movement or blocking/parrying, maintaining and/or being able to close distance quickly, etc.
Unintelligent pressure= following your opponent rather than cutting off the ring, leaving yourself exposed while on the attack, head-hunting, etc.
Intelligent pressure= Julio Cesar Chavez
Unintelligent pressure= Ricky Hatton
i agree except for the example of unintelligent pressure fighter....hatton was a master of cutting off the ring, the man had superb footwork, hell, was even able to close the gap against mayweather.....
UNintelligent pressure fighting: See Juan Diaz......the guy has no footwork at all, has no concept of what cutting off the ring is, and is flat-footed to boot...
