Did Tyson not base his style on Dempseys and said he wanted to fight just like him?

Vitali - Canzoneri is a great example

not sure about Toney - Walcott though (both counterpunchers, but not really that similar otherwise)

Yup.

Glad you think it's a good comparison, I think they fight almost identical but nobody else seems to mention them when talking about similar styles.

Toney took a lot from Walcott and it really shows in some fights.

nah, I dont think Cotto and Gomez fought alike at all. Gomez actually fought a bit like Duran, keeping his right arm always up on the side of his chin with his left arm a little more loose.
Cotto reminds me much more of Jose Torres, a light heavyweight that used a much more similar temple-type of guard.

Tyson was much more like Patterson as well, not surprising since they both learned from the same guy.

I dont really know where you got the Moore and Berto comparison from, lol

I know cus trained patterson and tyson, but I saw more of a dempsey style with tyson. That was tyson's favorite boxer and watched hours of tapes on him.,

I don't agree with that. Marquez style is all about counter punching. He does great when faced with guys that come right at him and attack him (Pacquiao, Diaz, Juarez, Peden) but he struggles badly with pure boxers who sit back and wait for him to attack (Mayweather, Chris John, Freddie Norwood. Also the Casamayor fight was dead even before the KO).

Lopez was the complete fighter. He could fight in several different styles depending on the opponent. He could pick you off with the jab, come forward and attack, counterpunch or brawl and he did it all really well. And he had 1 punch KO power in both hands. I like Marquez but he's not in the same league as Ricardo.

Some that I can think of...

Floyd Mayweather Jr - Ricardo Lopez
Felix Sturm - Winky Wright
Cory Spinks - Pernell Whitaker
Andre Ward - Bernard Hopkins
Wladimir Klitschko - Lennox Lewis
Celestino Caballero - Felix Trinidad

But the best one is proberbly Jose Luis Castillo - Julio Cesar Chavez. JLC was his sparring partner for years and you can see he learned alot from Julio when you watch some of his best performences (Lazcano, Diaz). Particuarly in terms of boxing punching and cutting off the ring. He was very good at that.

Yes, he was. It's my life's mission on boxingscene to make people realize that. He's top 10 p4p all-time.
