1. "Ugly" A lot of fighters have described to have an "ugly" style like B-Hop or Hatton
2. "Get on the bicycle"
There's probably some more but I can't remember for now.
Ugly When a fighter makes it a difficult fight by using questionable tactics bordering on illegal OR when a fighter just has a very unorthodox style that is difficult to gauge thus making the fight ugly.
"Getting on the bicyle" Means a guy is moving aroud the ring allot using his legs to evade without attacking. usually when a fighter is injured some people see him get on his bike to get out or harms way.
"Cute" is when a guy does something out of the ordinary offensively or defensibly that capitalizes or bring the crowd into the fight. like Sugar Ray Leonard taunting Roberto Duran or Roy Jones in his prime doing a robot dance when his opponent hits his guard. he makes the opponent look silly it's also an aspect of showmanship.
