The Sweet. Science. Hit, and don't get hit. That's the name of the game. No matter what style you employ----effective aggression, angles, lateral movement, Nike contest, etc.-----the name of the game is to hit, and not get hit. Having said that, many great fighters in the history of boxing have experienced a great deal of difficulty handling fighters who utilized effective movement and/or defensive tactics. Indeed, many were "exposed" by this, and caused many hard core, knowledgeable, and even casual fans to second guess their true abilities. Some of these encounters set the foundation for other fighters to do the same thing ----sometimes better. Sometimes, the performance and humiliation of being exposed either ended a career, or put the great fighter in a position where they were never the same again. Some of the fights actually ended with the great fighter finding a key to victory despite being exposed, but really opened the door to public criticism. Here's a list. Add yours. James J. Corbett vs. John L. Sullivan Gene Tunney vs. Jack Dempsey I Billy Conn vs. Joe Louis I Sonny Liston vs. Eddie Machen Sonny Liston vs. Clay/Ali I John Conteh vs. Matthew Saad Muhammad I Vonzell Johnson vs. Matthew Saad Muhammad Vilomar Fernandez vs. Roberto Duran Ray Lampkin vs. Roberto Duran Adolfo Viruet vs. Roberto Duran Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Roberto Duran II Vilomar Fernandez vs. Alexis Arguello Wilfred Benitez vs. Antonio Cervantes Oscar De La Hoya vs. Felix Trinidad Bernard Hopkins vs. Felix Trinidad Meldrick Taylor vs. JC Chavez Frankie Randall vs. JC Chavez I Pernell Whitaker vs. JC Chavez (robbery) Ali vs. George Foreman (Rope-A-Dope) Jimmy Young vs. George Foreman Roy Jones vs. James Toney* Michael Spinks vs. Dwight Braxton/Qawi Buster Douglas KO10 Mike Tyson Tony Tucker vs. Mike Tyson** Pernell Whitaker vs. Oscar De La Hoya Shane Mosley vs. Oscar De La Hoya I Salvador Sanchez vs. Danny Lopez Salvador Sanchez vs. Wilfredo Gomez** *Toney was depleted by a rapid weight loss, but considering that he's a counter puncher by nature, Jones proved that if you make Toney come to you, he's not as effective as he is as a counter puncher. **Both Sanchez and Tucker landed big punches in the first round of their encounters, but it was lateral movement and defense of Tucker that left some wondering a bit about Tyson, and Sanchez was just flat out brilliant at movement and countering against Gomez. I though Gomez was going to beat Sanchez before that fight, and I was wrong as wrong could be.
