As most people know, boxing is an art referred to as “The Sweet Science.” This video breaks down beautifully how Charley Burley and other fighters like Bernard Hopkins fight off their back foot with superior defense and counters. Burley was truly a master of his craft. His style is very efficient and defensive yet he hit hard and threatened with offense.
His fighting style is awesome, but a thing to also consider is there are advantages and disadvantages to all styles of fighting. You have to be proficient at fighting at all ranges while mastering what works for you; your strongest talent. I believe that having more proficiencies is the difference between most modern day fighters and many older fighters.
“Baby Spinach”, take some notes.
