Wilder Fury is the best example I can think of at the high levels of the HW division featuring a pure boxing performance vs a pure punching performance, to relatively equal results. Or at least, results demanding a rematch. I'd love a compendium of multiple fights featuring a similar duality. The traditional expectation is the boxer does better in rematches against the puncher. Largely that's consistent with the fights I could recall. So, please post any fight series that you can think of, especially HW with the ultimate results. Not all of them are a perfect fit: how many pure boxers vs pure puncher series are there? But I'm listing those who best fit the criteria. A lot I list are high level, but they certainly don't need to be Hall of Famers, any example featuring two fighters of comparable levels is welcome. My initial list: Ali Frazier I, II, and III: Puncher won initially, boxer won latter two Tunney Dempsey I and II: Boxer won both, puncher did better second time around though Wlad v Peter I and II: This is one of the closest analogues I could think of, even featuring multiple kd's in the first fight. Boxer won both fights, did much better in the second fight though. Adamek v Cunningham I and II: "Puncher" won both fights, much more clearly and less controversially the first fight, however. Ward Kovalev I and II: Boxer "won" both fights, the second somewhat less controversially than the first. Tua vs Rahman I and II: Puncher won first, draw in second. Jimmy Young v Earnie Shavers I and II: Puncher won first, draw in second. So, out of the seven fight series, 6 of them the boxer improved over the course of the series against the puncher. Obviously a very incomplete list and I fully admit my memory may be influenced by seeking historical validation for my belief Tyson Fury will do better in the rematch against Wilder. Please post your own historical comparison series, would be great to have a much more full list.
