Agree on Rigondeaux as well.
Bradley has good footwork as well. Even if he ****ed up his ankles.

Ismayl silLakh and it isn't even close. His legs are his defense. The man diesnt slip punches, he dodges them. Second coming of Ali with his legs.

Yes, good call, he's definitely up there. Although not that "it isn't even close" . Just look at Yamanaka and Rigondeaux, they are absolutely brilliant in the way they move as well.

first two names that came to mind have already been mentioned, Rigo & Sillakh. pretty special with da boy Sillakh cuz he kinda has a tall, awkward build. If only his upper movement was as good lol...

Hopkins as well. Joan Guzman when he's being defensive minded, not so much when he's coming forward.

beautiful footwork?

kind of an odd set of criterion i'd think

some nice mentions so far
i'll add chemito moreno and jorge linares

linares may not be effective, but i could watch that kid shadowbox all day.


best footwork i've seen in person was sergio martinez
he literally floats around the ring. it's unreal how fleet that dude is.


the best/most talented footwork of recent years is manny pacquiao in my opinion. he was never a fundamentalist or a technician with it, but that was not how he fought in his prime. it comes down to covering distance (moving,) and remaining balanced (in a position where you can avoid and throw punches,) and manny pacquiao did that very well.

he used to dart around the ring with tremendous speed with lightening fast changes in direction. he could land fast shots with full power while cutting in and out. he was hurting huge WW. there have been only a handful of fighters in history with a combination of speed and power like that.

pacquiao did that best 2-3 years back. recently he's started to only display his footwork for parts of rounds, or certain rounds and not others. and very recently (the past few fights,) he's simply began to deteriorate / lose coordination / slow down.

When Pacquiao was forced to move forward in constant motion his footwork was turning very ordinary, he was off balance very often and had no ability of cutting off the ring whatsoever, thus I think his footwork is rather overrated(not that it wasn't impressive).
