Has boxing technique changed over the years?

    Watching older videos of boxers. I feel like fighters used to be a little more loose. Threw more looping but well timed punches. And were more creative in the way they punched and put together combinations.

    Now I feel like boxing has evolved into a very strict formed, point system, straight punching kinda thing. The fighters look a little more stiff and the fights just don’t look as unique as the older ones.

    Watching Hagler vs Hearns, you just don’t see guys throwing like that anymore.

    Just me or something to this?
