Default best awkward fighters?

who is your favorite or who do you think is the best "awkward" fighter of all time? or the moment? you know what im talking about those types of fighters that move strangely and their opponents cant get a beat on them or time or in some cases figure out how to beat them.

I always thought a reason Antonio Tarver was successful as an elite fighter was because he was damn impossible to figure out and fight

Watch, and you'll see what Im talking about. He fought orthodoxish, but everybody he ever fought save Bernard Hopkins encountered some difficulty with him. He wasnt good. Just damn hard to fight

The first guy to come to mind was Aaron Pryor.

If not "awkward", then extremely herky-jerky, unorthodox, and all over the place.

Yeah Aaron Pryor. He switched up. He could box his ass off then go on all out assault with the erky jerky. Hamed hands down was the most crazy unorthodox fighter but not a great fighter to me. A very good one. My boy Vic Darchinyan. lol he is the most unorthodox of the right now, fun as hell to watch though.

Not really the best boxer, but Sam Soliman had some success with his akward style. High output, all kinds of angles and spasmodic movement made him hard to hit and hilarious to watch.

Roy Jones. He had probably one of the most effective awkward styles in the history of the sport. He always made huge technical mistakes, but his speed allowed him to get away with it.
