Default Fights Where MUSCLE MEMORY Costed a Fighter?

Are there fights where Fighter A was able to take advantage of Fighter's B muscle memory to draw a counter then counter it himself?

i like this one....mayweather against gatti, his feinting was brutal and he knew exactly what gatti would do each time, cooper and frazier against ali, they knew after every double jab ali would back straight back with his right hand down, ali knew that terrell would flinch before every punch and took advantage to embarass ernie, micky ward tapped a left hook to sanchez's head to get him to raise his hands and expose his ribs

I suppose Holyfield's countered dismissal of Buster Douglas was a classic example of this.. (Albeit Busters Lack will compared to the Tyson fight)

Schmeling vs Louis I is probably the most famous incident

i think ali'sstyle to most of the 60's generation.

low hands. just meant double your jab and throw the right hand and catch him slipping...that unless he is too fast with hand, foot and body to get caught and countered back.





BORKED

spinks throwing that left hook thinking "this has to make sense" "i GOT to hit him at some point"
