Similar to FMJ except Burley actually knows how to throw a proper punch, this could be partly because hes a smaller man fighting a LHW too.

Archie Moore was a Burley fan and he based his style on Burley's a bit imo using some of his moves.
There's film of Lloyd Marshall. I've heard comparisons with Archie Moore although I'm not sure if they're 100% accurate.
