Name some of the best boxer puncher vs pressure fighther matches in history.
Julio Cesar Chavez Vs Edwin Rosario
Marciano v Moore
Foreman v Lyle
Louis v Galento
Morales v Pac
Eder Jofre vs Fighting Harada
Ruiz vs Joshua 1
Ruiz is not the stereotypical pressure fighter because he only really throws when you have thrown, but he does pressure somewhat by always being on the front foot and coming forward
I would describe Lyle more as a boxer puncher
Azumah Nelson vs Jeff Fenech
Antonio Tarver vs Glenn Johnson
Juan Manuel Marquez vs Juan Diaz ( that one still breaks my heart )
Hearns v Barkley
Arguello vs Pryor although Pryor was a little more than just a pressure fighter. He certainly played that role against Arguello in that fight though.
Carmen Basilio vs Ray Robinson.
So do you consider Foreman the pressure fighter out of the 2?
I would. Despite having a good jab he was always coming forward.
