You practically said that - you said he wasn't going to make the fight 'fun', i.e he is boring.

I only commented because you know that I will jump at every comment you make since you claimed to own me in another thread

i reckon naz through some of the strangest combo's i've ever seen.
as for the finest i'd say Ali has to be up there alongside tyson,,
and today's finest combo thrower would go to Marquez (jmm)

The Kronk has produced some fantastic combination punchers when i come to think about it.

Just watching some G-MAN.....damn the guy was lethal!!!!!!!!!!!!!! jab right hand over top and then drops to side and lands left hook to body....the guy was devastating.

That's a massive assumption on your part, Kos. Kotelnik has an incredibly effective defence and has never touched the canvas- Khan's gamelan was the only one, considering his attributes, that was ever going to work, IMO.

I also know you follow my posts religiously!

Never said anything about what and what wouldn't work against Kotelnik - just saying both contributed to the fight not being the most exciting, thats all.

Duran is very underrated in this department, not too flashy but very effective.

I never thought I'd see the words 'Duran' and 'underrated' in close proximity on this forum

When Khan and Kessler are getting mentions for combination punching and Duran isn't then he's underated....

Kessler is only being mentioned in the sense he's about as fluid a combination thrower as Khan

Taylor did tend to shoe shine this making the combo less effective

Domestic:

Tony Sibson
Jason Booth

there 2 fine examples i can think of just now

World/OAT:

Tyson - Brilliantly fast from head to body seemlessly)
JMM - Buetifal combinations with brillaint little movements during it
Arguello - Stringed his shots together text book
Louis - Short sharp and effective, threw in left hooks brillaintly
Carlos Ortiz - when he smelled blood he threw combos like a little Joe Louis
Ray leonard - Really good combinations when he was in his boxer-puncher role
Duran - just amazing in all areas this no exception, disguised his combos well
