    Two quick clips on the awkward genius Tony Canzoneri, who in my mind had the most unique style in boxing history. I'm sure i could have found some better ones (such as the Berg KO), but I wanted to start a discussion on Tony.

    What are your thoughts on Tony Canzoneri's abilities and greatness as a fighter? Do you like him as a fighter? How does he do today?

    Also, I recommend watching this extended video from TheGreatA.

    ATG as is Ross. I rate Ross just a little better. Lou Ambers is awsome on film too

    Terrific head movement

    No question an ATG during an era that bred ATGs. 135-147 was STACKED. Armstrong top 5, Ross top 15, Larnin top 20, Canzoneri and Ambers both top 35 and interchangable though i rate Ambers higher

    He’s great to watch. A fighter who could use inches so well and make you miss easily. Very great fighter from an instinctive view he seemed to always be in control and know what his opponent was going to do.

    He did a lot so young so peaked at a young age but his accomplishments and resume are stuff of legend. Probably a top 20-25 all-time. I have Ross ahead of him but him slightly ahead of McLarnin.

    Great couple of clips, thanks for sharing.
    He sort of reminds me of Eddie Mustafa Muhammad, but more fluid.
    Incredible résumé tho, top 20 pfp staple imo

    Canz Amber's Ross are all 3 of the greatest ever in my book. Cant go wrong with any of them. All great unique fighters with styles all there own simply magnificent
