Emmanuel Burton also had a pleasing style, I think he could have done more with his career if he was a little more disciplined.

As current fighters go I really enjoy Hozumi Hasegawa's fights.

Gene Tunney was ahead of his time technique and stylewise, and still remains the most underrated heavyweight champion of all time.

While I haven't seen alot of him Ralph Dupas had a beautiful style.

Ken Buchanan was great to watch esp against Paduano.

Anthony Stephens while not a great fighter had a smooth style esp against Bramble and Brazier 2.

Roger Mayweather in his prime had a beautiful style-always looking to set up that righthand.

also i think honestly that hopkins (when hes onnit) looks great especially in the pavlik fight recently he's technicaly onpoint n i loved his lead right wen he throws it seems so sneaky n out of the blue

i entered this thread with a conscious curiosity if someone will mention him.
the ugliest dirtiest fouliest style ever.
surpassing even lloyd honeyghan , tyson , marciano and holyfield altogether.
mccallums' clinch+honeyghan's headbutts+faking lowblows (original) =
hopkins' style.
and yet , for tickboy he is greater mw than james toney.
good clean styles belong to toney , griffin , jones , julian jackson .
i saw almost every important toney fight and no fouls. also very efficient and effective style. jones' style is on his self responsibility but interesting to watch.

Ike Williams is always a joy to watch, he had those floating, gliding movements and the beautiful jab.

Hedgemon Lewis was another fighter who was very pleasing to the eye.
