There are so many, many I haven't even watched. But I'll throw out some names of fighters who I really like as more or less complete technicians:

JMM
Harold Johnson
Archie Moore
Arguello
Mantequilla
Ricardo Lopez
Toney
McCallum
Kalambay
Benitez
Mayweather
Duran
Sanchez

I agree pretty much with all of this list....especially the name of Harold Johnson at the top...he was the quintessential ring technician IMO..I personally would include Carlos Monzon, Emile Griffith and Bernard Hopkins here however.

Oh, Benny Leonard too! Even though we don't have enough footage, difficult to give a personal opinion without much of it.

Yeah, I thought about Gans. But, we have what ? 6 minutes of clear footage ?

I forgot Charley Burley, something like 30 minutes of footage is enough in some cases, I would add Burley alright!
