Default some of the best bobbers

Seems like this skill is lost, Morrison, and young Tyson had some of the best in more recent times, Joe Frazier had a bit of a different type of head movement more of a rhythm/timing that would slip punches. Punches that he would anticipate by him closing the gap and time of when they were thrown by how fast and close he would get with in the range of the punch. Can you guys give some good examples of excellent bobbers or peek a boo stylists.

Tyson slipped more than bob & weaved

Frazier was a good example of a bob & weave fighter

Both take enormous amounts of energy to do throughout a 12 (or 15) round fight however

Nigell Benn & Qawi also used it to great effect

Frazier is an obvious choice but Qawi is a good call too.

Can you name me a good fight where he displays it. (Nigell)

Floyd Patterson

This may sound odd, but Manny Pacquiao - particularly in the earlier part of his career before the major weightjumps

I love watching these kinds of fighters...

It's a shame that the technique/style seems to be dying out :(

That 'style' is probably one of the pinnacle factors for why a limited fighter such as Chisora could do so well against Vitali.

I remember how he was bobbing and weaving behind a high guard in the first Marquez fight. Interesting how he shifted away from that over time.
