Default Who showed the best use of angles?

Angles are something I thought us while watching Hopkins-Cloud. I use the term "worked the angles" or "attacked from angles" but it's a tricky concept. Who used angles the best and most effectively? Is it just movement?

If you film footage and examples, please feel free to share em

these are both examples from pacquiao, quick and dirty but this is what i was thinking.

in both the margarito fight:

and the hatton fight (notably 3:20-3:50)

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

he seems to use angles quite a bit. against margarito it was near constant and against hatton, it was to set up his own offense and keep hatton COMPLETELY off target and balance

Hamed at number 1.

Watch Spadafora against Pito Cardona for a great example.

Watch Marquez fight Pacquaio, half a step back, out to an angle and able to pivot back into the punch, brilliant.
