    He’s probably Top 25 all time in terms of defensive head movement. However, I think Top 10 would be too much of a stretch at this point, especially with how many fighters in the lower weight classes there have been with excellent head movement over the last 150 years or so of Marquess of Queensberry Rules Boxing.

    Nope, there are a lot of slicksters who do it and have done it better with more relentless opponents, also the history of the sport is too rich and diverse to put Cinnamon in every top 10 list under the sun.

    Hes one of the best defensive fighters of his generation. All time? Probably top 20.

    Mayweather's defense based on footwork and shoulder movement. Canelo just stands in front of you like a statue, and you still can't touch him.

    Mayweather still had much better head movement than Canelo. Even if he used it less.

    His head is really big. It's very hard to move.
