Default What is a "textbook" boxer?

Excuse my ignorance, but what people mean when they say a boxer is a "textbook?

I know some english, but i don't know what they mean with that. I readed that of boxers like JM Marquez, Floyd Mayweather and Mario Kindelan.

thanks

De La Hoya is the best example of any kind of textbook boxer. Mayweather is anything but...Lead right hands? Rolling to the left and then back to the right and coming up with a lead right uppercut? Yeah, that **** ain't textbook homeslice.

i'd say cotto is closer to textbook than floyd. good body position, balance, moves his head but not too much. throws all his punches nicely

A technically correct fighter, as someone mentioned, Cotto is a good example.

joe louis is considered the quintessential "textbook" fighter. Body turned to the side, hands up, chin down, body weight used in jab, cross and hook.
