Default Re: if you were a boxer, who would you pattern your style after?

I would love to style myself after James Toney so I could be lazy, but I would be Sung Kil-Moon. Wild swings, accidental feints, copious.headbutts, the refinement of a 1970's porno. But a man can dream, a man can dream...

I really don't want to see any of the big-footed galutes on here fighting, so far. Myself included.

I'm the same way. If I had a choice, I'd be Mayweather Jr. I'd love to take such little punishment.

Someone described watching Carlos Monzon like stabbing yourself in the eyes a few days ago. I disagree with that statement. Watching Sung-Kil Moon is like stabbing yourself in the eyes.

I imagined myself a John L Sullivan, albeit lefty, and did quite well for having limited skills.

Safety first would be my style. I am far too old and have seen too many people destroyed by sports once they hit 40 or 50 years old. Taking a beating takes it's toll and it is simply not worth it once you are older.

I would incorpoate the various aspects of the styles of guys like Willie Pastrano, Hugo Corro, Joey Maxim, Tommy Loughran...all in the interest of avoiding punishment to the best of my ability. I would use the jab a lot and counterpunch..oh yeah, I'd be a counterpuncher....when i wasn't holding and wrestling, like Sammy Angott.

I would be a come forward type of guy, I reckon I hit pretty hard, so I would try to capitalize on my power. I prefer to move my head and upper body even though I have fast feet.

I think I would fight like Pirog to make it simple, but I would put more mustard on my punches.

If I was a boxer Boxed Ears would hate me, I would land less punches than.....I donīt :know .... Jimmy Young ?! hahaha

If I was a fighter I would be like Jimmy Young on the outside and like John Ruiz on the inside....good enough to me !

Well if I'm to be honest, I would not be the most entertaining of fighters, I'd probably be like Lennox Lewis. I'm 6'3, but weigh 152 today walking around, so making 147 would be a piece of cake. I have a very big reach, so I'd try to just use my size to my advantage not to be hit. I'd hate to be going against a Marciano type fighter, the swarmer with a good chin.

I've tried. I never get past the fourth without a very detectable dip in activity. I gave up after years of the same; it's been pretty much established I couldn't keep a fighting pace.

I imagine I would be a kind of limited slugger. I've been told that my power is, or was, frightening for my weight and build, but other than that, nothing stands out. I would put my speed down as average, my stamina's absolutely dreadful, and I turtle-up once a good combination is laid on me. I'm also not boxing-strong, despite what my power in the ring would indicate.

In my years in the golden gloves I mixed Buchanan, Louis, Pep and Moore together,,,well as decent as I could anyways. I threw in Ali's anchor punch along the way so he was in there also.
