    Who can name some?

    I think Golovkin and Kovalev often fight guys who move faster, but they compensate for it with good timing and punch selection.

    I wouldn't call Maidana/Broner an out-boxing. That was just an ass-whoopin'.

    Porter isn't faster & neither was he outboxed. He lost a very close MD.

    Maidana was just too strong & powerful. Broner wasn't outboxed.

    I agree.. I think the op meant outboxing and not just overwhelming the opponent with brutality...


    Chavez vs. Camacho was an outboxing by a slower guy..

    I'll give you and Sinister Maidana. Fair enough.

    But I didn't think the Porter/Brook fight was close.

    Morales vs Pacquiao 1. Morales was significantly slower and boxed him up pretty good.

    Porter was thoroughly outboxed by Brook, but I wouldn't say Porter is faster.

    Amir Khan was not outboxed by Garcia, he was boxing Danny's face off then he got knocked out.

    Russell might have faster hand speed, but Lomachenko is faster in just about every other way, I think.

    The Mosley/Forrest and Mosley/Wright fights could count. I was thinking Khan/Kindelan at the '04 games might count, as well, though, Kindelan was very fast himself.

    A lot of examples given here aren't really guys being "outboxed." I don't think Danny Garcia outboxed Khan, he just knocked the shit out of him.
