And boxed like the small fighter. Sandy Saddler and Paul Williams both come to mind who else?

Paul Williams comes right to mind. The way he was fighting against Martinez in the rematch, you'd think he he was a 5''6 infighter.

Paul needs to learn to start using his height & reach, instead of fighting smaller men on the inside. But Williams trainer Mr Peterson has said Paul dosent really work on technical things in the gym, so I don't see that happening anytime soon.

De La Hoya leant foward a lot against smaller fighters, but he could compensate most of the time by being so quick. Also, whether this was a ploy or not remains to be seen.
