Default One-dimensional fighters that had good boxing skills?

Were there any fighters that had great boxing skills, but only fought the same way over and over again?

Default Re: Out of these fighters, who had the best boxing skills?

Why are Gatti and Corrales in with these guys?! Even Jackson and Pryor are levels above those two.

If you have great boxing skills, why would you want to fight some 'other' way?

Wladimir Klitschko.

Watch the fights with McCline and Mercer. That's one slick, badass boxing heavyweight.

His fights today have largely abandoned the dynamic fluidity of his early style in favor of his concussive straight punches and imposing physical strength.

Wlad fights in a hyper European style nowadays because it worked, but there was a short stretch where he was the most dynamic heavyweight on the scene, and viewed as Lewis' inevitable successor.

Manny Stewarts fighters tend to fight a certain way, behind the jab. Lots of grabbing and leaning as well from his heavyweights.


I always liked Ricky Hatton even though some don't, in recent years he climbed high up the ranks with a style that wasn't hard to predict. Opponents knew exactly what Hatton was going to. He only had one way of fighting.

Not true. Hatton had two ways of fighting, but could only do one at a time in any given fight.

For example, boxing: Paulie
Mauling: Tszyu

Hatton did very little boxing in his career. I'm not reaching too far when I say that.

Hatton was more cautious after the Floyd and Lazcano fights because he had lost his pomp and needed his confidence back.

Hatton personified the come forward aggressive wrestling fighter that worked well on the inside. Not many would dispute this was his boxing style.

I've noticed you're a touch contrarion.

Tackie was before Tszyu. He boxed there as well.

I only post to the contrary when I think someone is wrong.
