Mainly fighters who rarely use proper boxing technique and solely rely on athletic talent.
The only fighters that come to mind are:
Muhammad Ali
Manny Pacquiao
Roy Jones Jr.
Prince Naseem Hamed

Who else?

left hand low, right hand at his chest

hard on the front foot
chin out there and chillin
backing straight up


his technique offensively wasn't all that off
but in terms of his defensive presentation he was far from a textbook boxer.

Ken Norton's style was pretty unorthodox, for a hw especially. And Vic the Raging Bull is unorthodox too, for sure.

I think that he was never the same after firing his trainer and hiring Steward.
