They cross their feet, for one.
The appropriate way to move in boxing is - you move a direction with the foot opposite of where you're going.
left foot takes you right, right foot takes you left, blah blah.
the aforementioned have very odd footwork. Throwing punches while crossing their feet, not keeping their feet in proper position etc.
