Default Fighters who were one style early in their careers

But changed to a different one later on.

Are there any who did?

Not quite in the same league as those mentioned so far, but Steve Collins went from cutie boxer, to presser fighting brawler with limited power.

Marvin Hagler was initially a big punching counter fighter, before becoming more aggressive particularly in the 80s.

George Foreman became more cute second time round.

People forget that Saad Muhammad (Franklin) was a very slick, almost safety first boxer early on. I think the frustration of losing the narrow fight to Eddie Mustafa led to the one eighty change in style. If he could have fused the two styles he would be a major threat to Foster, Charles, Spinks or anyone.

Except Loughran. I can't imagine any incarnation of Saad Muhammad in any perfect world threatening Tommy. That would be a stylistic nightmare for Miracle Matt imho.
