    It would be nice to compile some videos/gifs of good head movement here. The fighters that master it are pretty damn impressive. I don't think I got the best examples, but it's a start.

    mike tyson had such a supreme style, if only he beat holyfield we could rightfully rank him as a top 10 hw, as for emanuel augustus... lol whats there to say, that was one entertaining dude. Good thread poindexter.

    One of my fav boxers, roy jones jr, roy was able to hit champions with shots that pros shoudlnt even be hit with. Roy Jones one of the best boxers ive had the privilege of watching.

    Thanks for the video - I saw a similar thread elsewhere, and everyone is always criticizing fighters for lack of head movement, it's good to see some of the real artistry that's involved.

    Did somebody say head movement?

    James Toney, one of the best ever!

    That was pretty brilliant (or cheap, according to Rampage) the way that kick was both offense and defense.

    Watch how his head is never in the same position following a punch so that it can't be countered.

    Napoles did it effortlessly like it was instinct for him since birth.

    This is no where near as impressive as the above videos(because they are doing it to professional boxers), but I thought it was interesting that some training could make most people you meet in the street miss...and miss bad.

    I would have much rather seen Toney/Couture in a boxing match than an MMA fight.
