James Toney was a superb defensive fighter.

I dont mean running, or "boxing with your feet first"

I mean...he came to beat your teeth out, but usually accomplished it by making you miss.

Go watch his fights and you will see the difference immediately between Him and the other "defensive fighters"

Joshua Clottey and Arthur Abraham too.... they take punches but never really been severely hurt.... it might save them from brain damage too since they don't get hit flush as much as other fighters

Though, I can't seem to find other boxers who have AS good defensive skills if not better. Only other person I can come up with is Pernell Whitaker and he was really elusive more than reflective or blocking. Call me new but I'm here to learn.

So who else can there be? What makes em stand out too?
try to put those dang defensive fighters againts an old man or a weight below them fighters i bet ya theyll look as good might possibly better than how floyd does LOL

or make them cherrypick opponents lol
