Surely not the most ever, but Sergio Martinez always seems to be having a good time

Of the greats Benny Leonard is the most mentally relaxed I have seen. There doesn't seem to be any nervous energy or pent up aggression. He seems right in the moment and is totally considered and calculated in what he does. Being so cool and grounded let him out think him opponents.

he might not be a popular pick but id say Hamed.

He fought the whole MAB fight with his hands down

Dude was doing somersaults and dancing mid fights

In the 1970's,,,,,,,,

John Conteh always seemed 'relaxed and confident'

Antonio Cervantes, Eusubio Pedroza and Ayub Kalule another 'relaxed group'

Thank god someone said it.

He didn't even give a shit when he got dropped against Valdez in the second fight, straight back to work after a 30 second period of clever clinching and slowing the pace down.

I guess it's easy to be relaxed when you only worry about fighting 10 seconds a round.

Prime Roy Jones looked too relaxed in the ring. People often questioned his opposition because of that and still do. Fought good fighters but he made it look too easy and often times look disinterested.
