Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Mayweather's rapid head movement allows him to tempt opponents to throw a punch, only to leave themself open to one of his quick punches, as happens here against Marcos Maidana. Not only did the Argentinian miss Mayweather entirely, he was left further discouraged by absorbing a hard right to the face.
