    IMO, SRL's showboating in the fight against Hagler made me more impress than the one he did to Duran.

    Lomachenko was a pretty good showboater himself.

    Hey guys! You know....the part of showboating that I like the most is not when the fighter is tauting his opponent around the ring, but it is when showboating goes wrong. Boxing is one of the most dangerous sports so you have to protect yourself at all time. I have seen many showboatings ended up with a brutal K.O.

    Hamed didn`t throw flashy combo`s the way Robinson did. Robinson as flashier than the guys on this list without showboating and Hamed said he copied Ali but could never match him.

    Nobody put on a show like Jorge Paez. One of the most entertaining fighters ever, both for his fights, and antics.
