Top 3 of the best defensive boxers of all time


Celebrity News: Fans love the excitement of Boxing. The sport has been closely followed for almost a century, and over this period of time, we have witnessed some of the most epic battles and most exciting victory stories.

Although boxing often offers fireworks and endless action, entertainment can be given in different ways. After all, true fans and enthusiasts refer to the sport as “sweet science” because of their technical roots.

However, we all know that much of Boxing does not just involve the offense, it also includes defense. Throughout history, there have been a handful of boxers who displayed technical greatness, especially when it comes to defense.

Today we share with you the Top 3 of the best defensive boxers of all time:

1) Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker

There is a reason why when we talk about great defensive boxers, the name of Pernell Whitaker is often at the top of the list. “Sweet Pea” was blessed with the gift of incredible talent for defense. He could see blows a mile away and made adjustments to avoid them. In a time of warriors offering pure and unrestrained action, Whitaker provided a fresh air breeze for fans who wanted to see more technical performances.

2) Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr.

Recognized as probably the best defensive boxer of all time, Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. has embodied the perfection of Boxing. Not only is it nearly impossible to hit, it also succeeds with their combinations and their swift counterattacks.

With a 49-0 record, he has remained unbeaten during his 20-year career at Boxing. He has been a champion for 16 of those years and is rarely challenged in the ring.

3) James “Lights Out” Toney

Natural sense and eluding fists are a prerequisite to being called a defense master, and there are not many boys who are better at that than James Toney. Toney was once considered by Hall of Famer Freddie Roach as the most natural-born boxer in history.

And that is completely true. While at the top, Toney was notable for not spending as much time in training, going to the camp overweight and lacking enthusiasm for improvement. Even so, his natural ability was more than enough to win his encounters. Toney was simply born to fight, it’s that simple.
