    Whilst I agree he's exciting, aesthetically pleasing is the last thing I'd call Wilder's style.

    Wilder is one of the most ungainly and strongest things seen lately in the HWs.

    Roberto Duran.

    You have to watch some oh his tapes to understand the finesse brutality in his style.
    Difficult not to love watching him box, really.

    Gvozdyk's my current favourite style wise. He's precise and agile in his movements, especially his quick attack off that beautiful pivoting that disrupts the opponents rhythm and balance. He's the elusive mover who doesn't run or spoil, instead coming forward with his own sharp attack. He's like one of those quick whack a moles that are hard to catch, popping in and out from everywhere ready to attack.

    Ruiz Jr. is my second. Super fast, adept at combination punching, come forward, not afraid to mix it up and show these bigger and seemingly more athletic dudes how it's done.

    Boxing allows me to witness a variation of styles, some-days I want to watch the sweet science displayed by both combatants:
    DLH vs Mosley I
    Leonard vs Benitez
    Whitaker vs JCC
    JMM vs Pac
    PBF vs Cotto
    Sanchez vs Nelson


    Some days I want to witness a clinic, one sided masterful performance
    Hopkins vs Trinidad
    Hopkins vs Pavlik
    Quintana vs WIlliams & Julio.
    Holy vs Moorer II


    Some days I prefer to watch all day brawls
    Hagler vs Mugabi
    Holy vs Bowe I
    Sanchez vs Gomez
    Mercer vs Bowe
    Lamotta vs Hayes
    Armstrong vs Arizmendi
    PBF vs Corley
    Hopkins vs Echols II
    Tapia vs Ayala
    Cobb vs Shavers

    Some days when Im a bit upset I could watch one-sided beat downs all day. When I'm ticked? These fights are really
    aesthetically pleasing!
    Bowe vs Gonzalez
    Mosley vs Margarito
    Toney vs Barkley
    RJJ vs Brannon


    Some days I really prefer to watch inside fights, those who go inside and stay there until one succumbs
    Toney vs Jirov
    Marquez vs Vazquez
    JCC vs Rosario


    And sometimes, I like to watch a bonanza of non stop 1 punch end em fights.
    Hopkins vs Lipsey
    Tua vs Ruiz, Moorer
    Julian Jackson (pick one!)
    SRR vs Fulmer
    RJJ vs Griffin

    I even have a section of fights labeled as nonstop action fights. Different in brawls in that I have fights like Dorin vs Spadafora these 2 threw the sink at each other but had little pop to their punch. Even power, they delivered all night.
    Samsitchiwal vs Monshipour
    Ward vs Augustus
    Haven't made a DVD on fights in some years since Utube got so many, but when I did I had a Table Of Contents categorizing based on style of fights, not so much career DVDs. About 700 gig of fights on my laptop all based on which style is aesthetically pleasing!

    There are more, but these came to mind right away.
