    Just on pure boxing skills alone. Basically fighters that almost always boxes on the outside while displaying great movement and defense with the intent to just box the full 12 rounds. Who would you say are some of the best pure boxers currently?

    For me:
    Oleksandr Usyk
    Shakur Stevenson
    Dmitry Bivol
    Devin Haney
    Donnie Nietes
    Sunny Edwards

    I dont agree with the term "pure-boxer". To me provodnikov is as pure boxer as mayweather was, or froch was. Boxing is wiiiiiiiiide, there's no "pure-boxer" for me, insinde the ring they all are pure-boxers. A mexican hardcore would tell you that not only rigondeaux is not a "pure-boxer", but he's not a boxer at all. Boxing is wide, and they all have space there. I love every single style, some styles more than others depending on the moment (A chess match at 5 a.m...... no thank you) but all of them are equally pure-boxing.

    Well, I know nobody cares about that. But I was bored.

    Where's Inoue? Definition of a pure boxer. Everything off the jab.

    I personally classify Estrada and Inoue as boxer-punchers.
