I'll say that Prince Naseem would be considered as one of the best unconventional boxers.
Naseem could only get so far with that style, his fundamentals were horrible despite his tant.
So true, his only defense is leaning backwards which can only go so far like you said. But his footwork is funny though XD
Golota is the king of unconventionals
Jab, straight, hook, overhand to the body and then uppercut to the nuts

Dude, chill out with that man. If you don't know any unconventional fighters, don't say anything at all man. Chill out.
You are new here, welcome! but your thread on unconventional boxers is not really new. I gave you that answer to extend the point of view on the term unconventional because it can be confused with another similar term: unorthodox. Golota threw away major victories for his unconventional boxing and still no one knows very well why he raged on Bowe's genitals during those two matches he was winning largely on points.
You might have the worst username in the history of usernames.
Tyson's extreme lack of height and peekaboo style were pretty unconventional for a heavy.
Mayweather had a pretty unconventional defence.
Not forgetting the ear removal

Chris Eubank snr.
Peek-a-boo was used by Floyd Patterson, Jose Torres so not really unconventional. Tyson just used it the best. Scotty Olsen used a variation of it as well.
Mayweather obviously learned it from his family who learned the Philly style popularized by George Benton and others. I think Toney is the best at it.
Pacquiao's old style, like how he fought Marquez the first time. The constant bobbing and weaving and head movement non stop PLUS only going to the head for power shots. No work to the body hardly. Same way he fought Barrera, explosive and unconventional.
