Im really loving my unflashy technicians at the moment...like Cervantes, McCallum, Canto and to a lesser extent Yuh etc.

Sometimes I find these guys just as great to watch as more fluid, smooth boxers that everyone else is mentioning.

I can watch these guys all day long, so much skill and finesse on display its a joy to watch. Its just too bad we don`t see the same kind of boxing skills that these men possessed very often nowadays, such a shame really.
Great picks in there, really like what you sent me of Dupas very nice style and a great tactician. Lov ethe way he can spin a guy.

I noticed you had a lot of and think highly of Stable, from the disk you kindly sent me of Stable vs Shomo, Stable seemed to have that Cuban style and grave of LMR, Gavilan and Napolesd but lacked their balance, you agree?

Yeh they can at times I like Cervantez's fight with Dejesus. Canto is one of my favrouites he was smooth and fluid IMO. Defensive skills that are unrivalled at Fly.

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.
man hopkins is ol'school he's all the stuff you learn in the gym

One recent guy I really like to watch is sergio Martinez... he really makes things look easy, and his footwork is exellent.

Can't agree with Hopkins, while he is very skilled and crafty, he also use too much dirty fighting, he actually advise you to spit out your mouthpiece to buy time in the ring.

Of course younger hopkins was good to watch, like his bout against Glen Johnson, completely outclassing Johnson with a wide arsenal of punches from many angles. Tremendous pressure he applied in that fight.

Wasn't old enough to see a guy like Azumah Nelson live, but he looks like he knows how to methodically break down an opponent, some nice calm finishes there.
