Today, Nonito Donaire's style strikes me as beautiful..he has moves like SRR in the way he sets a guy up for the kill..he moves like a killer cat.

I always liked Genaro Hernandez. So fluid and economical.

He's my favourite of today's fighters.

Sanchez, Ali and McCallum are probably my all time favourites to watch. So smooth and relaxed in their movements.

I'm obviously in the minority here since I don't recall his name being mentioned but I enjoy SRL. He's just got a lot of everything. skill, power, ring smarts, speed, a good chin, no flaws really.

Sumbu Kalambay had such a smooth precise style.

He's been plenty mentioned. Especially on the first couple of pages.

While many rememeber him as a slickster and a mover, I really enjoyed him the most when he was in "killer mode". One of the best finishers ever. Put together such fluid yet precise and deadly combinations.

Love his defensive moves. He's so good at getting his shoulders up for protection. Often he doesn't bother to duck beneath hooks, but just puts his shoulder up and rolls with them. And what a jab.

As flawless as they come really. I just wish he let his hands go more and cut loose some combinations. It works beautifully for him as it is, but personallly I'd get even more pleasure out of watching him if he did that.

Oh, yeah. "Tiger" is perhaps an overused word when describing fighters, but he was just so relaxed yet alert the whole time and then, when it was time, suddenly pounced with all the deadliness in the world.
