Holmes seems like a control freak in the ring, he just won't lose his composure, very intelligent and used his ability smart. A guy who can shape the fight the way he wants to is always intriguing to watch.

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.
Oh no you got me wrong, I am a massive admirer of Chang's style - I think he is excellant to watch and always impressive. And i cant disagree with a word you say.

I think Harada in the end would have been too strong for him but what a fight. Who would be the best Flyweight you think he could beat? Canto?

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.
I love that comparison with Duran as it is so correct. Would you describe him as a natural talent?

-Tyson in his prime for sure.
-Marciano had an underrated flow, some people just think he was a big puncher, that he was, but her knew how to defend quiet well.
-Jersey Joe Walcott had amazing leg movement, a great all around fighter.

Archie Moore - an amazing beautiful fighter - class, grace, fluidity, smooth moves, fought in the pocket, beautiful feints, an artist with effortless poise, like a mechanic working over an engine - a tap here a yank there - a tremendous finisher too

Young Hector Camacho was breathtaking. It was only a very brief portion of his career unfortunately.

Jose Napoles; nothing broke up by indecision, every move linked like a well-paced film, and all delivered with surreal creation.

Not as excitable as Pep; Napoles was the faultless wizard.

Before his fight with Edwin Rosario Hector was a dynamic marvel.

Jose Napoles was perhaps the definition of a fighter with a beautiful style.

Jersey Joe Walcott
Beautiful fighter to watch such a smooth boxer and his footwork was so graceful.

Pernell Whitaker
When you watch Sweet Pea fight your watching a master at work there's only one word to describe Whitaker and that is a genius.

Sugar Ray Leonard
Speed, power, heart, courage, skill, grace, the perfect fighting machine.

Marvellous Marvin Hagler
Silky smooth southpaw skills with bareknuckle grit and ferociousness.

Mike McCallum
A throwback fighter one of the most perfect technical fighters.

At his peak, Julio Cesar Chavez was a sight to behold. Ali, of course... he did so many things wrong but made it effective. Gene Tunney was much like Ali, lightning quick, great on his feet and in there to fight. Sugar Ray Robinson, what really needs to be said? Carlos Monzon had a grim poetry to his work.
