    Aaron Pryor

    Jeff Fenech

    Wayne McCollough

    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

    Kassim Ouma

    Sam Langford deserves a mention.

    Julio Cesar Vasquez in more recent times was good too.

    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?

    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.
