I love watching Joe, there was no escaping from him. Really the only way to avoid getting pummelled by him was to get him before he got you (Foreman)

Alotta good ones mentioned so far. I especially agree with Frazier and Chavez, but let me add LaMotta and the best of all Mike Tyson. I know that he tried not to get hit while he came barreling in, but this guy was an offensive machine. I know it's been said, but with all the bashing of modern fighters we were all lucky to be fight fans when this guy was in the game.

Had to edit to add Henry Armstrong.

for me the best offensivee fighters are the boxer punchers who set up there shots and then get there man out like Alexis Arguello, Carlos Ortiz, Tommy Hearns, Joe Louis

I love guys like that (almost as much as the defensive geniuses).

Nice post, people like to talk about how proven Tyson is, but for me that offensive skillset is amazing. The footwork, the technique employed within that style, the combinations to either body or head, and best of all, the combinations to both. The countering with devastating results, just amazing in the context of this thread.

Damn T, he threw alotta punches, threw 'em fast and on target, most of 'em with as he said, "Bad intentions." What an exciting fighter. Like Greg does, I probably prize the defensive masters over the heated offensive guys, but if you got a guy like Tyson in the ring you know you're going to see an exciting fight.

Yeah definitely, in his prime you were usually treated to a very special snippet you could keep playing over (if you recorded it!), where you'd just be in awe and wow at it. Yeah when i see great defence i'm just in awe totally, but the kind of offence we're talking here has me in that same type of awe, because we're not just talking aggression (which is admirable in its own right), but pure offensive skill, something special.

Tyson for me was one of the best at combining defence and offence. very good at it when he was young.

i watched some of when he was an amatuer and he was so offensive he had no defence its amazing how much he came on in the pros.

another one that deserves a mention here is your man Teeto

**** Ruben Olivares needs to be mentioned, Fighting Harada in a different sense, but mentioned all the same.

Yeah i posted a nice vid of Duran for you on page 1. Tyson and Duran are possibly the two finest exponents of the fine art of combining great defense with prolific offense.

Yeah, I mean you can't go in sloppily, mindlessly and not take shots; if you're in there with anybody who can hit you're probably goin' down. None of the great offensive fighters were slobs.

Yeah i mean i do have plenty of respect for the type of fighter who is aggressive and willing to take 3 to land 1, but it's more 'wow what a warrior' in respect rather than being speechless at how good he was. I explaining myself okay Chinx? Sorry if not! We need some more vids in this thread i think.

Yeah Sweet Pea mentioned Chang already. Not having a good day here are you kiddo?! Only kidding. Harada was amazingly dynamic and accurate at the same time, when on offense, so difficult to get the better of.

Yeah i luv that, Sweet Scientist was saying he does as well. Jofre comes back with them long inverted bolo shot type punches, and plenty of them, class, accurate as you like.
