Default The official definition of 'Lacying' an opponent.

" To completely and utterly batter your opponent with great technical skill and control for a prolonged period of severity ".

Not many of these around, Floyd-Gatti would have counted had it lasted a few more rounds(as it stands, it classifies as a 'beatdown' only), Floyd-Corrales was one sided, but the combo's weren't shredding Corrales to pieces until later on, Floyd did his jab-pot shot routine until he softed Corrales up.

Two examples off the top of my head aside from the obvious JC-Lacy fight would be:

Mijares-Arce, Toney-Barkley.

Simple one sided beatdowns don't always apply, because to 'Lacy' an opponent is a prolonged technical shredding, so many of Hopkins' one sided beatdowns do not count in this class.

Feel free to discuss and add more bouts where an opponent was Lacyed.

Lacy is the Tyrell Biggs of our era. One big fight and ruined.

I don't like to think of these things but that's how boxing is. If you wanna call those performances Lacying someone go ahead cuz u wouldn't really be wrong in doing so.

Gamboa seems to have lacying potential

All supernaturals do. Toney was not a supernatural, but he had supernatural potential that was never fully unleashed.

Gamboa is a front runner for 'potential supernatural'.

Mijares and Guzman are supernaturals, they can Lacy people something terrible. Guzman has the ability to give Manny Pac a ripe Lacying if he's at his best, but don't tell the Pacmaniacs such.

EDIT:

This is so disrespectful to Jeff Lacy as a man that it's just wrong. However, bring on the beauty through massacre discussion!

He opened up on him, but for a bit, he was doing the jab-pot shot routine. Wasn't a big deal, as he did open up on Corrales when he got the full feel.

The pot shotting vs. DLH and Baldomir happened to be the worst. But he will open up on that overrated Ricky Hatton and stop him mid to late.

calzaghe gave lacy the greatest exhabition of boxing i've seen to date.

lacying is a good term - should be in the dictionary.

In fairness to Lacy, it still remains to be seen how "shot" he is.There was another unbeaten prospect once upon a time , that took a worse beating than Lacy did, getting ktfo.He came back and eventually knocked out his tormentor a couple of years later in the first round.His name was Joe Louis.
Lacy didn't look good in his comeback fight , but he won despite suffering a torn rotator cuff, the same injury that made Vitali Klitchko quit in a fight he was winning .So Lacy could come back, his ego took a worse beating than his face , if he does have the resolve of Joe Louis.Anybody who could fight on and win with such a painful injury, certainly could be given the benifet of the doubt.

I like this definition, Lacy-ed/ing is already in my dictionary and you can use it for any achievment of an aggressive nature not exclusive to boxing in the same way as words such as nail...

the obvious...

'I'm going to Lacy this mother****er'

the mundane...

'I Lacyed the dishes'

I rewatched the Lacy/Calzaghe fight for the first time since the first viewing on fight night and it is still, for me, quite simply, the most brilliant boxing masterclass against a dangerous opponent,who, remember, had quite literally 'run over' his previous opponents, that I have ever seen

There will soon be a new word - Calzaghed. When you look it up in the dictionary, you will see a picture of a broken heart, with the explanation of broken will, hands, pride and face.

Andraded is already in the dictionary. Its slightly different than being Lacyed. You need to take an endless beating, and not show any signs of being the victim of 12 rounds of unleashed hellish thrashings.
