Default Your favourite instance of showboating?

I was just thinking about Hearns Leonard 1 where in round 5 (I think...) Hearns started mocking leonards showboating bolo punches. Made me laugh when I first saw him doing that.

What are some of your favourite cases of showboating in a fight?

Duran sticking out his chin to Leonard pointing at it with one hand and then hitting him with the other one.

Duran tapping his chin to Hagler after a round(I forget which round).

Toney and whatever showboating he does he's so smooth with it.

Ali doing his shuffle shortly before he disposed of Williams.

Showboating reached it's peak with Leonard in the No Mas fight...it should be retired now.

The way RJJ suckered Toney into exposing his chin for sustaining the first knockdown of his career. Normally, I like to see the showboater pay the price for his grandstanding by getting flattened, but what Roy did to James (and others) was showbaiting.

Another good example of showbaiting was when SRL bent over an off guard Hagler with a bolo to the gut. Marv was fully expecting Ray to duplicate what he did to Duran in New Orleans, and got crossed up.

Early in his title loss to Leon Spinks, Ali was making faces. Big mistake. Leon started making faces back. Only Bonecrusher Smith (the black Moon Mullins) could trade faces with Leon.

There was a point in their fight where Dwight Muhammad Qawi stood right in front of Leon Spinks,with his arms down and chin in the air,and invited him to take a few shots.Leon did so but failed miserably,as Qawi evaded almost every blow and responded with his own flurry where almost every punch landed.


Hamed's dance shuffle in the middle of his fight with Jose Badillo was pretty amusing,also.

Hamed looking away and slipping McCulloughs shot and then connecting with McCullough whilst still looking away. It would be impressive to do it against a journeyman but to do it against a former world champion and former olympic medallist is nothing short of sheer class.

What are some of your favourite cases of showboating in a fight?
An old fat ,36 year old Jack Johnson ,standing back and mockingly applauding Frank Moran when he manged to land one of his rare punches.

It's at 7.45.
The commentary is farcical, but the incident is clearly shown.

I hate 99% of showboating but enjoyed this example...
