    Its funny that you mentioned Hajime No Ippo due to the fact that I always compare Steve Fox with Arnie Gregory:

    Granted, Arnie has a longer hair and is smaller in weight class but they both have a similar boxing fundamentals with the exception of Steve being able to perform various signature moves including flicker jabs and foot stomps.

    He reminded me of Hawk mostly because their similar dodges and angles, but he does look like Arnie

    Only his sway back reminds me of Bryan Hawk. But the way he throws hooks/straights and the way he moves looks a lot like Arnie. Steve also performs flicker jabs,foot stomps, counter punches similar to other Hajime No Ippo characters.

    Common Bro!

    That's not even funny. Steve to me is like a mix of Ricardo Lopez and Naseem Hamed. Ricardo in perfect textbook boxing with sways and switching of stance to throw combo.

    A lot of his moves are taken from the manga Hajime no Ippo.

    Some of the moves from the manga:
    - Dempsey Roll and Peek-a-boo stance (Ippo)
    - Smasher (Sendo)
    - White Fang (Volg/Vorg)
    - Flicker Jab (Mashiba)
    and a lot more.

    He's not based on anyone in particular but his moveset seems to be heavily influenced by Hajime No Ippo (which in itself is a weaboo boxing anime).

    Dempsey Roll (rolling hooks) - Ippo
    Smash (fadeaway 3/4 uppercut) - Sendo
    White Fang (uppercut-chopping right combo) - Volg Zangief
    Hitman Stance/Flicker jabs - Mashiba

    Now obviously these are all techniques used by real boxers, but those specific signature punches are all used in a fairly iconic boxing anime, so I'm assuming that they drew heavily from it when designing him.
