SUNG-KIL MOON

None of this finesse crap, just march right in and get the clubbing hooks and overhand rights going.

Chang is kinda like that but more refined and i am a massive Chang fan.

Khaoker vs Moon 2: Khaoker really boxed beautifully at times.

Well.
For me itīs easy.
1. Muhammad Ali during the 60īs
2. Sugar Ray Leonard, aspecially in the fight against Hagler.
3. Mike Tyson in his early years.
4.Sugar Ray Robinson has to be mentioned even if I havenīt seen so
much of him as I probably should.
Cheers

Most of my favorites have already been mentioned, but I'm a little surprised that Joey Archer's name hasn't come up yet. It was something to hear the cheers of the MSG crowd rise as his jabs started streaming out to score on a continually moving Griffith.

Dempsey was more cobra like on real time movie film than the herky-jerky quality which inferior footage reproductions on youtube suggest.

An overlooked masterpiece by Benitez was his dissection of Chiaverini. Normally, Wilfred's punches had a tap-tap-tap quality when he countered off the ropes, but he really beat the shit out of Tony in this one. Chiaverini was never close to going down, but he didn't protest the stoppage much either after it was halted. He was interviewed in the ring following their match, and sounded like he was completely wiped out. A heavyweight version of Benitez would have been a peak George Foreman's ultimate nightmare.

Vilomar Fernandez used his legs as well in the opening rounds of his challenge of Hilmer Kenty as I've ever seen anybody apply footwork.

I actually thought Chang was excellent to watch. He wasn't a textbook fighter at all, but his instinctive reflexes were amazing, both defensively and as a counter-puncher. He could open and close the distance in the blink of an eye to get his shots off while avoiding his oponent's blows. He was also extremely accurate with his punches and had very good head movement. Awesome fighter, a fight between he and a Flyweight Harada would've been dynamite. I don't know of too many other modern Flyweights that could've handled him.

I agree with you actually. Always seems so utterly in control and totally relaxed. Effortlessly handled his opponents and controlled the range. Could move nicely, and that jab was just sublime to watch. Had great speed and could mix it up with combinations at will.

Yeah, Chang is one of the best purely instinctive fighting talents since Duran imo, though not to everyone's tastes stylistically.I've always thought he was what Duran might have ended up looking like had he evolved himself, and not been molded into a more complete textbook technician by Arcel, Brown etc..

It would have been interesting to see what his career would have been like, had he some trainers like that to keep him a bit more grounded and really refine him.Get the feeling he just did what he wanted in Korea really.
