    As I explore and look through these amazing and funny threads, people may be noticing that I like rhythm / musician like boxers. In my opinion, I think these types of fighters are a thing of beauty, rhythm is an amazing thing to look in the sport of boxing, the footwork of it all plus the rhythm is like your dancing around your opponents. Then you add the bouncing on the toes, do you guys see how beautiful that is too look at? That is a rare art that certain people have or have in their possession. I have been researching so many rhythmic boxers and I just love it, all of it. Please give me some boxers who have that type of rhythm, show me it all.

    Examples: Emanuel Augustus (Emanuel Burton), Jorge Luis Linares (Never forget this rhythm legend), Vasyli 'The Matrix" Lomachenko, 'Showtime' Shawn Porter, Joey Spencer, Alfonso Blanco (VEN Olympics),
    Maxim Dadashev (Rest in peace... ) Kenneth 'The Candy Man' Gould (Astonishing Rhythm) Muhammad Ali, Larry Holmes, and final.... Candelario Duvergel

    So many legends to bring out that I'm just gonna go with the new active guys.
    From the current group of fighters with nice footwork is Billy Joe Saunders, even though he is wasting his talent away. He looked so good in this fight I thought he would be the resurrection of Maravilla.

    Next up is Guillermo Rigondeaux who can be very hypnotic and hard to hit once he gets a rhythm going. Rigo is another great fighter ruined by bad business dealings but he is probably the best bantamweight ever.

    Ivan Calderon at 4'11" barely reaching 700psi in his hardest punches, he relied heavily on footwork and angles to achieve boxing superiority.

    Rigo intimidates his opponents with a powerful counter-punch early on. So they agree to play it safe and allow Rigo to look superior for the rest of the fight.

    With Emanuel Augustus its Groove, his whole body not just foot work

    That's true, he is pretty stiff but he has groove. Ivan Calderon LOOKS AMAZING, his elusiveness, his movement in general looks crazy. Thanks for the recommendation, south-paw Sweat-Pea fighter for sure.

    This boxer literally opened my eyes, the world of boxing always has something to offer. It isn't all Golden Boy or The Matrix, so much more can be told and be reveal. I have discovered and uncovered a new area of greatness.
