Most of these guys I say "fine tuned" there styles or changed a bit as they got older. Hopkins for example isn't drastically different, he simply got old and slowed down his pace dramatically. He's been using the same techniques and trickery he did when he was in his 20's/30's, just his workrate is low.
Pacquiao is just a more fined tuned fighter and less wild, he's more controlled.
Marquez isn't drastically different imo at all.
Vitali fights pretty similar he's just older now.
barrera is a pretty good example

video is the only real way to show you why i believe otherwise, and of course, everybody is entitled to an opinion.
