"Never change a guys style", guys like Winky Wright, Pernell Whitaker and that type of stylist, didn't learn their boxing style from anyone, they do what they do, cos it works for them. It's almost like they make it up as they go along. If someone were to come along and tell Winky or Pernell, that they are doing it all wrong and try to teach them how to do things correctly it would take something from them, where they once would let their punches and moves flow, now they would have to think about what they are doing, if someone were to correct them. Pernell, Winky, Ali, Calzaghe, Hamed, Emmanuel Augustus, and many others did things that would probably drive coaches crazy but dumb as it looked it worked for them.

Think the Guy I would use as an example is Mosley.

That's definitely not the case- George Benton trained Whitaker and they are virtual clones of each other.

George Benton [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Whitaker [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Whitaker fought like that as an amateur long before George came into the picture.

Whitaker had a unique style all his own, there might have been a few Benton moves mixed in there but it was mostly Whitaker.

Sure there were similarities and George might have refined somethings in Pernell, but Pernell had things he could teach George if he could.
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Whitaker as an amateur

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
George in a boxing mode, the other clip of George he was in a boxer-puncher mode.

Is Mosley an example of chin in? I guess chin in and chin down are the same thing cos I never heard anybody say keep your chin pasted to the chest, and please I am not trying to be sarcastic with this post. Hopkins had the right idea, and its one trick to keep in mind.

No you do jab with the jabber, to frustrate their offensive setup.
