    According to Youtube Napolez is the ultimate no wonder his nickname was Mantequilla (butter) so smooth.

    YouTube sometimes can't talk boxing, Napolez wasn't really smooth, kind of but not the smoothest of the smoothies like Jorge Linares for example.

    Are we talking about the same Jorge Linares whose best win in the last 10 years is over a past-my-prime-I-should-have-stayed-at-130 Kevin Mitchell?

    I think Kellerman said about Linares once (maybe during the demarco fight?) that Jorge is a guy where the sum is smaller than the parts. Agreed he's very handsome, and great to watch when he turns it on against D-level opponents, but the amount of love this guy gets sometimes is a bit ridiculous.

    You should really think about giving Napoles a second chance. If you like smooth boxers then you'll love him.

    Whoever the smoothest is is the most smoothest. No need for the most.

    That being said, it's easy to look smooth when you're fighting former MMA curtain jerkers.

    Joey Spencer..... is that you?

    Maybe my ignorance took over me for a second, maybe I didn't look at Napoles as a smooth moving boxing. I'll really look at him this time XD

    If your talking about D-level opponents, then think about The Matrix, or Luke Campell, are is he a low-level fighter? Remember dude, these are professionals he is fighting, no one is a F or D class. The reason why he loses a lot of his fights if because he is easy to cut and bruise. Jorge Linares is actually pretty underrated, nobody really talks about him like.. ever these days.

    I like Jorge. I love Michelle. I think she's the hottest boxer wife.

    I love Jorge Linares because he lead my eyes to the Japanese, Korean, and the Chinese. This is the reason why I love Koki, complete boxer.

    He has rhythm though, when he is out-boxing, then he is smooth. He uses herky-jerky movements, at least it looks nice.

    I'm gonna have to disagree and say it doesn't look nice at all. Effective and rugged yes. Rhythmic perhaps. smooth idk maybe you know more than I

    Not sure I’d put Porter in this mix. Linares was so smooth with his movements offensively. His cut issues and overall defense was his undoing but he was so smooth offensively. I really enjoyed watching him fight. Loma is so smooth as well when he is in the zone. He might be the smartest fighter I’ve seen, anticipating moves and usually a couple steps ahead of his opponents. I hope he goes back to his natural weight and fights guys his own size. He’s giving up too much size at LW and even though I think he can beat top guys, it’s more fun to watch him against guys who aren’t two classes bigger than him.

    Sugar Ray Leonard was one of the smooth, fluid fighter as was Duran in his prime. Those guys always seemed relaxed and fluid. Big George as well. He was moving in slow motion but knew how to fight and didn’t waste energy. Very fluid and smooth but perhaps the most fluid was Ali. He could move, flick a jab and confound guys effortlessly. That’s probably my top pick.
