    It may not look like much, but I'm a big fan of a countering jab Alvarez landed on Cotto. I call those disruptive jabs. Quick, sharp, perfectly timed, disruptive.

    Very high level fight in terms of skill. Huge props for Cotto to do that well at that age with all the punishment he had taken in his career against a guy with that ability who had a monstrous size advantage.

    And props to Canelo for his sharpness. He is one of the sharpest fighters I. The world. There was a sequence where he pulled pack from a double jab straight right by cotto, jammed an uppercut into cottos face as a counter and then rolled under cottos left hook not bad.

    Definitely. If Canelo had the stamina to match his skills, he'd be twice as good.

    My all time favorite out of the ring moment in the history of boxing.

    I'm undecided between Larry's dropkick or Scott LeDoux kicking Howard Cosell's toupee off as my favorite out of the ring moment.

    Duran 'waltzing' DeJesus then pounding him with body shots.

    Chang's general headmovement and shifting against Zapata.

    Watanabe's left straight - right hook.

    Canzoneri and Chocolate having multiple exchanges without hitting each other.

    Burned into my memory is Hearns' second knockdown of Leonard in their second fight. I remember watching that as a kid and thinking it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen.

    In work and haven't had a chance to read through properly so apologies if repeated.

    RJJ - hands behind his back then catches his opponent, never ceases to amaze me.

    Duran - cant remember the opponent, but Duran pawed his jab, to entice the counter, then slipped the counter, and countered the counter, pretty sure hes done it a lot, just one of my favourite things to watch.

    JJW should have a whole section in this thread. He did some excellent moves against Louis, resulting in 4 KDs and a controversial decision over a certified top 3 HW champ. Him walking himself on to Ezzard Charles was a thing of beauty.
    But using both Ezzard Charles and Walcott again the check hook Ezzard decked Walcott with in the 2nd fight was near perfect.

    Ali, hands down avoiding a fast straight punching combination from Terrell which missed by inches. With the tiniest movement it was the damnest thing I ever saw.
