Default Most beautiful boxing style you've seen...

What's the most aesthetically pleasing boxer you've seen, regardless of resume and achievements?

In my personal opninion I really like watching Sweet Pea, but I also appreciate how a big guy like Ali could move in his early years, especially in the light of the current heavyweights who look very stationary and boring most of the time.

I find James Toney's style when he's in the pocket simply beautiful to watch. Rolling with shots, slipping them, countering with terrific combinations.

Yeah I agree, didn't think of him, but he is really skilled and was a a joy to watch, both his offensive arsenal and his shoulder roll etc...

Marco Antonio Barrera, with others ones being Orlando Canizales, Alexis Arguello, Muhammad Ali, Pernell Whitaker, etc.

Peak Marco had the capacity to throw lovely, smooth combinations, about as effortlessly as anyone I've ever seen on film. He very rarely was off balance, and would always fire balance in the event that he got tagged. I like how he can be moving and still firing off shots at the same time, he jabbed and moved brilliantly against Hamed and Tapia. A complete fighter in every sense of the work, had the capacity to do anything he wanted to do at any given moment.

Zapata and Rose and Famechon are amazing to watch.

Ezzard Charles, esp. against Joe Louis....MAB vs Hamed, and Willie Pep..in various fights..he WAS poetry in motion, to use such an abused phrase.

Also can't leave out Willie Pastrano and Harold Johnson...their fight was a dialogue...a physical chess match between two superb ring scientists/artists.
