Like Roy Jones Jr?
Though Roy did throw combinations like a bull

Jones knew how to throw right cross when there was an opening. Smith gave a lot of openings for the head, but Burley kept throwing hooks and swings.

I think your forgetting Burley won that fight very easily... It sounds like he lost how you guys are explaining it

If Burley can make it work then hell he should do it fighting guys with weird styles can be annoying as hell sometimes, maybe you remember the greatest boxer ever Sugar Ray Robinson loosing to Randy Turpin why not because Turpin had more power, better boxing skills but because of his awkward style

A lot of people are accusing Jones of not being impressive against McCallum, a fight he won by unanimous 120-106.
Anyway, the point is, Burley had technical flaws too. His jab not only was throwing when he was jumping up, but it was more of a range finder, not to inflict damage or score points.

He had lovely quick feet when moving laterally and changing direction, but when forced to come forward or throw longer shots he would lose his balance and nearly fall over!

Erm, sorry. Eubank is only out done by Dennis Andries as the worst balanced boxer in British ( World Champion ) history when attempting to throw big punches.

I know Dennis actually hit the canvas with one of his West Indian fast bowler over hand right's that missed by a country mile, but I couldn't swear Eubank did the same, though if NOT it was very very close.


Best balance ever Walker Smith. Guy could knock the other fella over going backwards.

Joe Louis has previously been mentioned, but what is often overlooked about his peak career moment, the triple hook knockdown of Max Baer, is that it was actually a QUINTUPLE hook combination, where he missed the first two, yet maintained position to unload the next three even after the initial misses. [Foreman would have done a complete pirouette after missing just one of those hooks.]

Don't talk to me about that klutz Ali, who tripped over his own feet against grace-master Wepner, then later spun around a couple of times after completely missing Chuck [who belongs on "Dancing with the Has Beens"-oops, er...I mean, "Stars"].

Hector Camacho had that combination of blinding quickness with the sense of distance and the mobility to frustrate his opponents.
