I think Donaire's left hook is a brutal brutal weapon when everything is right :

Hearns right hand was devastating.

SRR combinations and left hook.

Ken Buchanan jab.

Head movement HAS to go to Whitaker.

The most technically gifted fighter I've watched is McCallum.

Pernell incredible but is that teachable to an amateur boxer? Some of the movements are very unorthodox.

If you are very athletic, yes.

Pernell's technique was top notch but yes, his defense was unorthodox.

McCallum is a great fighter to study, extremely smart & technically proficient. He was taught by Steward & Futch & his fights are filled with old-school tricks.

Marquez is another one to watch & learn from, Hopkins as well.
