I always go back to the terrifying display of savagery that was that 11th round. As no parameters were set, subjective interpretation reigns and I stand by this.

People forget that even slicksters can be bad, bad men sometimes.

"Defense"

The word that immediately sprung to my mind when I read the thread title.

I'm going to steal a line from Holyfield, who summed up Pernell with one word: sneaky.

That was the source of Whitaker's strength in defense, in playing the angles on opponents, on surprising them with shots that seemed to come out of nowhere:; he was one clever, sneaky mother****er.

I'm surprised your one word wasn't 'Whitacre'.
