Terry Norris. He was fast but polished, he was aggressive but accurate, and his reflexes were top notch as well.

He can do it all, he can bang, he can box, punch from short range and long range and fight on the inside if an opponent dare come that close.

Missed him out stupidly, such an excellant boxer. Always doing soemthing moving, spinning feinting....

Excellant fight that, the skill level was through the roof

Great choices

You would really appreciate Rose, Zapata and Famechon especially Famechon

Alexis Arguello is another poetry in motion at times

Willie Pep made it look easy at times, so does James Toney and Pernell Whitaker.

Ezzard Charles and Jersey Joe Walcott are also wonderful to watch.

I loved Durans style agression coming from a boxer/puncher and in the Dejesus rematch the switch from body to head attack and how he broke Esteban down.

I loved Ken Buchanan, good legs and jab and he had some pop

Joe Louis the way he put his power perfectly behind his short compact combo's and felled many a big man

Willie Pep and Nicilino Loche

Rocky Marciano, He was the on the attack but smart and could bust up a Rythym fighters momentum and often beat them to the punch with a well timed and odd angled bomb.

SRL Speed, power,movement, and Killer instinct

SRR...He had it all, fought in a thick era and had a 128-2-2 record going into the Turpin fight

Jersey Joe Walcott....one of the cutest, had great legs, quick hands and KO power in both. He was not an aggressive fighter but could drop you or KO you with either hand and then coast

The most beautiful style I've seen belonged to...

Ray Leonard.

Yep. Not only did he have the legs, but his punching was so well-coordinated and crisp and technically sound that it was ...elegant.
