Default Best head movement?

I would say Barrera had good head movement.

Surprisingly Pacman at his best. Delahoya couldn't find him at all.

Calzaghe and Hamed. Their defense was more or less based on never being able to find the damn thing.

Really like how Benitez made opponents miss by inches. It seemed so natural.

Just seen hightlights of Loche, but his head movement just looks fantastic.

Tyson was a bit erratic in this regard, but when he was on his head movement was really something behold.

I wouldn't like to have Qawi in front of me bobbing, weaving and trying to get past my jab with his crazy smile.

Guys like Whitaker, Locche, Benitez and Duran all had something in common that allowed 'em to do their little tricks : they felt at home in a ring. James Toney too.

Some fighters have subtle head-movement like Duran, he made you miss by inches so it was harder to notice rather than fighters like Frazier and Tyson had a lot of upper body movement as well as head movement so they had more of a rhythm to theirs.
