This vid makes a strong case for Chavez Sr:
Yeah JCC was top tier so was Duran, Marciano, Dempsey(prime active version), Frazier
Tyson deserves mention. Theres a reason why movement wasnt the recipe for beating Mike.
Juan Manuel Marquez, when he fought someone who wanted to box and counter punch was adept at it, see his fight with Victor Polo and Manuel Medina for example, and even decently well against Derick Gainer, who was solely interested in escape. It also allowed him to swiftly pile punishment on fading opponents who were in retreat, as against Casamayor and Diaz.
Simon Brown other than the fight with McGirt
GGG very good at it as well
George Foreman ( maybe not the best)
Sam Langford deserves a mention.
Julio Cesar Vasquez in more recent times was good too.
Big George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Olivares, Zarate, Arguello, Duran the 70's A.Pryor, Hearns, (was masterful the early rds against Leonard) Tyson, Chavez,K. Galaxy, Mugabi, Cuevas. 90'S Trinidad, Benn, Mcclean, Jackson,.
Damn I miss Wilson Kayden.
He was the best I've ever heard at analysis. What happened to him?
Got hit with copyright strikes and just stopped posting after Floyd/Pac. Fell off the face of the earth. Damn shame.
What are some specific fights where the guys named in this thread cut off the ring against quick, mobile targets who were trying to use a lot of lateral movement?
Frazier vs Ali and Norton
Chavez vs Mayweather 2x and Camacho
Fenech vs everyone
Ali said even though he beat George it was hell trying to get away from him during the rumble, Ali had to clinch a lot in the first round of that one before he had to revert to the rope `a dope.
Chavez Sr v Camacho.
