Default Turning Defense Into Offence

Jack Johnson is a famous example of a fighter who turned great defense into great offence, throwing a punch with the same hand he would use for a block.

What other fighters were really good at turning defence into offence?

I'd say Bernard Hopkins and Jersey Joe Walcott could do it with footwork, taking a defencive stance or retreat and turning it into a beautiful attacking opportunity.

Floyd Mayweather can do it. He can pot shot from a heavy lean and turn a dip into a shooting opportunity.

Duran?

Why are you spelling defence with an 's' by the way?

I thought spelling D with an S or a C was every man or womans own choice.

It's the Americanisation of the spelling that bugs me, unless it's a Yank that's posting.
