you only get that sort of style from being confident in doing what you know what to do

in other words gain lots of experience in sparing it helps if you can see your opponent body movements to then give you a idea what punch he/she going to through

you gotta be smart in the ring thats for sure, it builds over time. In sparring i usually never focus on exchanges but countering and looking for openings and setting up punches.

Roach shut up. The slip line is a prime tool for improving your upper body flexibility and hard-wiring your muscles to follow through with those movements. Yoga has been used by many top boxers.

Bogotzo, you know as well as I do it all starts with your feet and your balance.

Other than that, get a guy to throw punches at you, and play defense, and look for counters.

That's the best way to anticpate shots.

Sure, sparring, but what's wrong with a slip line?

Learn how to fight. A slip-line will not make you a slick fighter. Yoga will not make you a better fighter. Lifting weights and being able to run for hours on end will not make you a slick fighter. Learn how to fight. Then, and only then, will any of that other stuff matter.

I would've thought that a slip line would be very boxing specific, slipping is a big part of boxing and especially if you want to be a 'slickster'.
And I disagree, those other things will make you a better fighter. You improve strength and motor learning is enhanced as there are less central resources used due to the lesser activation, you improve cardio and you have the energy to use your skills and practice with more freshness and concentration. Yoga helps your awareness of your body so you are more coordinated.

I didn't realize this was so complicated. Yoga is used to improve balance, agility and flexibility especially around the waist. That way you have a larger range of motion that you can slip and you can move without throwing your back out.

Then make sure to shadow box and incorporate lots of headmovement and do it with your eyes closed (idea from scrap) which would help with your balance and proprioception.

Also YES use a slip line. This is the style I use. After you get good with this, you can try it with your eyes closed a little as well

And I personally do all the things I just recommended to you and it works. The only other thing I'd add is to jumprope. You'll want some bounce and fluidity to your step if you want to be slick

Not one of those things will make you a better fighter, especially not a better slick fighter. A big part of being slick is being smart, boxing smart. If you want to be boxing smart, box, learn your craft. Then perhaps these things will enhance your boxing ability; in and of themselves they will not create that ability.
Being "slick' is not just slipping and bobbing and weaving. It is making the guy throw the punch you want him to throw when you want him to throw it, so you can land the punch you want to land. It requires a great deal of mental energy and boxing intelligence that only comes from boxing.

There's a mental and physical side to it. Sweet Pea is nimble and flexible compared to Arthur Abraham who is stiff and tight. You need the physical capabilities to be slick as well
