Really depends on your weight class, size, syle you feel more comfortable with ect.

An example in heavyweight would be

if your small and often fight taller opponents, watch Joe Frazier and Mike Tyson (prime) fights etc. see how they bob & weave and get into taller opponents and then land their hard shots.

If your taller watch how guys like Ali and Lewis used their jabs to keep shorter guys out of range.

All the great champs of the last 30 years at every weight have something different to offer.....

Indeed, James Toney showed us you can still be a fat bastard and a winner!

I was brought up throught the amatuers studying Ray Robinson films. He would always have me watching them. Even today Rays style is king. His ring generalmanship, the feints, his subtle movements to the side before attcking and man was that jab sweet. The guy was great.

James Toney is a great defensive fighter. The shoulder rolling being the key to his greatness.

Alot of people have told me that I fight similar to James when sparring and such. I spent alot of time around and watching him in the gym and probably did pick up a few of his tricks. The guy is a smart fighter, when weight control is not involved.

if you wanna watch a 12 rd boxing lesson and what not to do, watch joe c V jeff l, if you wanna watch a quick ko and again what not to do watch kosta v zab, if you wanna watch a war watch gatti v ward 1 if you wanna watch 12rds of a great fight watch jones jr V tarver 1, **** just watch as many fights as you can and pick up off all of them, thats why i have the sig i got, because im a mix of all those fighters in one!

Watch them all ...don't just watch the greats ..watch every style you can and don't just watch the better fighter see how the other guy makes mistakes and how the better man takes advantage....you need to know how to fight a Butterbean before you can fight a Tyson ....see what styles work well against others you can always find something in every fighter that can help you ....maybe a guy drops his right hand after a punch see how he gets away with it or how the other man crushes him ....not all of us can be roy jones tyson robinson or ali so take what you can from all fighters and use what works well for you
