I think it's either Naz or Sweat Pea, but I'm bias towards picking Whitaker :boxing:

RJJ has to rank up there too.

my vote for the flashiest ever goes to ali with his speed and footwork and combinations, and propensity to slip punches by pulling his head away

I hated him, but Camacho was mad flashy at 130 and 135. Kid was unbelievable.

The correct word in that situation would be "dummies".

I vote for Hector Camacho.

If I have to pick just one, it would probably be Hamed.

I'm very surprised that nobody has mentioned the 1960's version of Muhammad Ali yet.

I remember listening to the commentary on some Tyson fight SRL was talking about show boating and how HE invented it ... I laughed out load when lampley said something along the lines of "I think a guy called Mohammed Ali might take issue with that Ray"

Floyd Mayweather

its true naz fought with the flashiest style of the lot ... in fact his whole style could be described as an attempt to be flashy, if he'd toned it back a bit and fought a bit more orthodox he would have been the better fighter imo - guys like barrera are just too smart to fall for the flash and could see the holes that it exposed

Sugar Ray Robinson
Sugar Ray Leonard
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Roy Jones

Prince Naseem Hamed hands down has to be the flashiest. At least, I got the chance to watch the guy do it.

Henry Armstrong
Sugar Ray Robinson

Who knows about those two? Next, Sugar Ray Leonard, he was to me never really a flashy fighter. He did his exhibition matches/flashy moves against lower level fighters but he never pulled those moves against Thomas Hearns, Marvin Hagler, and Roberto Duran. If anything else, he was on his bicycle the whole night. Ask Hagler, he is still pissed off at Leonard for never giving him a rematch. And Hagler always said the same thing, Leonard ran from him the whole night. Leonard threw punches in the last 30 seconds of the rounds but most of those landed on Hagler's arms.

We all would tune in just to see what shorts Camacho was gonna wear. He sticks out the most to me as flashy.

I am tyler
09-26-2011, 07:42 AM
Hector Camacho also

I don't think you can get any flashier than Naz.


Really. Flying carpet entrances. Front flips into the ring. Doing things so outrageous to the point where it starts looking sloppier than MMA haymakers. Yet it all worked.


Prince Nazeem gets my vote.
