Tunney/Gibbons, and Loughran/Braddock are also fine examples to peruse.
If you go back to my previous posts, 4 or 5 pages ago, you'll see my criteria for a "pure boxer". It stands out when I made a comparison with Jones and Ali.

Yes you did, in posts #16, #22, #53 and especially #59 ("JAB"). I probably didn't tune into it as I normally would have, because I was preoccupied with purging my mind of a long-winded post. (The irony of all this is that I don't particularly enjoy creating such compositions, but do so in an effort to clear my head of these intrusive and unwanted thoughts.)

i've seen most of the louis v conn fight and conn was doing a job on joe.a pity he decided he was going to try and knock him out.

Exactly! It was a bit too ****y than to trade punches on the inside with the greatest HW- puncher of all times..
