To define the types of boxers, we use their boxing styles. There are mainly 3 styles of boxing that boxing fighters represent or use. Which of these are you?
When inside fighters fight, it will always be the most exciting match. The viewers will be overwhelmed by their close range fighting with effective intensity and flurries of jabs and uppercuts. This type of fighters must have very good chin to be able to handle many jabs before he can get close to his opponent. Boxers that are inside-fighters are such as Mike Tyson, Rocky Marciano and Joe Frazier.
These boxers are opposite to inside-fighters. Instead of getting close and leaving small gap between him and his opponent, out-boxers will keep the distance but instead deliver fast and long range punches. These fighters are mostly well-known for their fast footwork, however, less powerful strength in punches. Great outside-boxers are great with their fighting strategy to win, not their knockout punches, except some boxers like Lennox Lewis and Felix Trinidad. The examples of out boxers are Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson and Sugar Ray Leonard.
Brawlers or Sluggers or hard hitters or one punchers are the boxers that try to win the fight with mostly raw power and very less strategy. They are known for their one punch knockout. Since there is almost no strategy, the fight will be unpredictable and exciting. However, these fighters depend on their shots with great power, they are likely to be slow to move around the ring. These fighters are such as Eric Esch, Sonny Liston, George Foreman and Rocky Marciano.
