Default Boxers Mimicking other boxers

Which boxers have done this in movements or in celebration ect
I know Ray Leonard in the Hagler fight in the 10th round i think cant remember havnt watched that fight in a while he mimicked Jersey Joe Walcotts Walcott shuffle
Tyson copied Dempsey no socks his hair and no robe, also copied Battling Nelson's stance after the Larry Holmes knockout, i heard somebody say he also copied Mickey Walker of standing over his knocked down opponents.
Any others ?

Didn't Ali claim the phantom punch against listen was really an anchor punch originally thrown by jack Johnson?

Sugar Ray Leonard mimicked Ali a number of times throughout his career. Probably none more so than when he fought Duran the second time.

Leonard sought and received the approval of Robinson to use the 'Sugar Ray' knickname. His ego was no bigger than many other fighters of similar ranking.
