Default Whose fighting style do you prefer, Mike Tyson or Floyd Mayweather

I actually prefer the brilliant genius defensive style of Floyd Mayweather Jr.
But he gets called out for being a runner, hugger and chicken. Thoughts?

Floyd also had a different style early on in his career. Was much more proficient at knocking people out and power punching, but because of hand issues he had to overcome and adapt. Can't really knock the man for having great defensive skills and sound strategies.

All of that said, I still prefer Mike Tyson. Much more fun to watch someone obliterate people with power punches.

I enjoy both of them. Two different styles, both brilliant in their own right.

That's the fun of boxing. There can be more than one way to beat up a man.

Tyson's is easier on the eye but leaves you more vulnerable. Floyd had to switch up the style as he got older.
