Elusive aggression

Elusive aggression

Just thought I’d bring this topic up as a potentially controversial subject. Why?

(a)I think it is misunderstood by a lot of boxing fans. For example, there is nothing elusive about travelling in a straight line. This puts Tyson out of this category. A man the size of Lennox Lewis would stand back and say, “Just tell me when you’re through moving your head so I can lower the boom.”

(b)Men who have practiced this art effectively would be Roberto Duran and Aaron Pryor. They moved in all different angles while also backing their opponent up.

(c)Does anyone have any other fighters that truly fit the above description? I’d love to take a look at some of them on You Tube. ( No, I didn't forget about Pacquiao. lol)

Marvin Hagler after 1984. Pernell Whitaker, for all the criticism he takes, was elusively aggressive for at least some period in all his fights. More so late in his career.

Ricardo Lopez on the attack was a thing of beauty.

Michael Carbajal was pretty good at it. I think maybe you could put a guy like Holyfield in the category too. Despite his lack of size, he backed a lot of big men up for an aweful lot of his fights.

i'd say early Floyd and current Floyd still match this criteria. id say Ward definitely does. he rarely gets hit clean and is alway in close fighting. landing heavy punches whilst not getting hit is elusive aggression.... elusive aggression should be the whole point of any Boxer's arsenal

Current Floyd to me goes back too much. He is more into counter punching now.
