Did Robinson have better balance? I dont think so. At least not at 160.

Pep? I havent seen that much of him, but judging from the Saddler fights I say no.

Ali? Lol no.

Other noteworthies not mentioned is Pernell Whitaker and Floyd Mayweather. They lacked the pop though.
How about your fellow countryman the "Danish Pastry" Neilson? With one stipulation, I would take Neilson provided he was prone and punching from the prone position.

I don't think they necessary had a perfect technical footwork, they were just brilliant athlethes and that kind of guys can operate even in not perfect position.
Sweet Pea suffered quite a few flash knock-downs when he got caught off balance and I thought Floyd would sometimes lose his form when throwing more than 2 shots.

As for Rigondeaux - he had a perfect balance for his style, but his offence was relatively limited. It's much harder to remain in balance when you throw combinations, imo.
Ray Leonard's form was amazing.

How about Mike McCallum? I thought he always looked in great balance.

The body snatchers a great choice...you had better be balanced when going to the body! Body punchers are like stock shorters... or like snakes because in all cases you are doing an activity that takes extra skill... The body puncher is leaving himself vulnerable to a counter to the head, the stock shorter is in real danger if the stock goes up suddenly and a snake is a creature that catches its prey with its face and no legs!
