Default Will anyone ever attempt to win a round without throwing a punch like Willie Pep?

Watching Gamboa last night ducking and dodging punches with his hands down got me thinking. What if he tried to do that the entire round without throwing a punch.

Obviously it wouldn't be him. It would have to be someone better defensively. Someone who is conscious of history and would try to replicate what the legend is about Willie Pep. I have no idea if the judges would even give that person a round in today's era even if he did avoid every punch. The other guy just might win it on workrate

The round Pep was supposed to have won without throwing a punch, was according to newspapers, filled with action from both fighters.

I don't think any fighter worth following will attempt it, nor do I think it is plausible with proper judges.

No, but he spent the better part of the last 50 years perpetuating it.

Even if it is a myth, a historically conscious fighter (someone of B-Hop's level) should try to do it. Purposely not throw a punch and try to duck, block, bob & weave his way for 3 minutes. And see what happens and what the commentators will say.

Well De La Hoya did that in the last round against Trinidad. Oh no wait, he just ran away. But one of the judges did give him that round even though he didn't throw a single punch in it.

That would be interesting, but I doubt they'd be able to get the nod.

Defense doesn't get enough credit in my opinion. But I guess it's going to look completely different from the judges table.
