Felix Trinidad comes to mind
Carlos Monzon of course.
Eder Jofre could also start slow.
Spinks, Chavez, Saldivar, Arguello, and Monzon are probably the top 5 here.
Salvador Sanchez is another one who was sometimes slow out the blocks. Not against Gomez or Lopez however.
I believe the topic said "great" fighters who were slow starters.
Colin Jones doesn't qualify.
Forgot about Pedroza. Good example
Post Charles Marciano
Henry Armstrong kinda
In recent memory, Usyk
One not mentioned: Rodrigo Valdez. While he was under Gil Clancy's tutorage, he often cautioned the refs against any bias against 'Rocky's' early passivity. And...when he let go?...Boom
