Any decent fighters that you can think of who use a more straight forward stance?

    Fighters who don't have super bladed stances like Mayweather, but more like Lyoto Machida or Roy Jones Jr.

    Pretty much most amateur boxers. Clottey, Cotto. Lowered guards are SUPPOSED to be the exception. I disagree that a high guard is always the correct guard.

    Also Bas Rutten and Mike Tyson.

    For boxing purposes I suppose anything goes, but the 'mma stance' is a little more complicated.. It seems that fighters prefer a bladed stance at long range, and squaring up for brawling/clinching range.

    Oscar DeLaHoya was a really good one. Check him out. Good luck replicating that ;0
