Default Re: The rhythm Breakers...Who are they

aggressive fighters are usually pretty good rhythme breakers..unless they are themselves totally predicatable in their own rhythme....dempsey said that beginning fighters can be effective rhythm breakers..because they have none of their own, so they throw punches that make no sense, hence a experienced guy can get caught by a newibie when you figure he will never get touched.

Good point but when a guy gets ring wisdom and there is a method to his madness...and he throws a bomb out of rhythm its a *****, Duran could also be one.

Calzaghe also. Kessler held advantages in athletic prowess, power, youth (12 years or so), technical ability, yet Calzaghe completely threw him off with his rhythm breaking style.

Hopkins, Monzon and Vitali Klitschko are others.

I watched Tony Thompson last weekend and he qualifies as well, even if he isn't half as good as the former names. He was slower and lesser powerful, but outlanded his opponent something like 5:1 because of his great timing. Timing is extremely important.
good post....you are on the money with JJW...funny but a R.B. can be a boxer and or a puncher, Walcott was both...Marciano was a modern day ring version of Columbo the T.V. detective, he looked like he was throwing a tap and he double up with a punch and would change up on the order of his punches, not so predictable

It's very hard for anyone to look good against Hopkins, Clottey, and maybe Winky Wright.

Saul Mamby. He had a lot of losses but I don't recall him ever being stopped.

Ken Norton was a great rhythm breaker..he was poison to Muhammad Ali and should have won bout #3 of theirs.

Awkward guys, guys who used a lot of angles, and jabbers.

You and Chang need to get a room, but yeah, I think that's a valid enough point...and the reason why I picked him to beat Lopez in the other thread. Lopez was accustomed to setting the pace and working at his own rhythm. Chang wouldn't allow that to happen, so whereas Chang would be fighting his usual fight...Lopez would be like a fish out of water.

Sammy Angott was a great rhythm breaker vs Willie Pep.
