I thought of this yesterday after watching Bradley fights.

Who has the more awkward style between Emmanuel Augustus and Timothy Bradley?

And who would win that fight.

To me Bradley isnt really that awkward. He fights like a typical short fighter. he bobs and weaves his way in and lands flurry's when he gets those opportunities inside. he also works from a halfway decent jab. He's really not unlike Prime Tyson. Bradley's only hangup is that he has no power behind his punches. If Bradley hit like, say... Provodnikov, he'd have a bunch of KO's on his record. Its no doubt that he's gonna hit you, its just that no one feels or notices the blows because of how light they are. Thats why so many feel Pacquiao won the fight. However, in slow motion, Bradley out landed Pac and was rightfully given the decision.

I respectfully disagree, Bradleys style is more suited for a guy with KO power but he doesn't have that. Also mix in with his aggression and boxing style you can't say that's not an awkard style. Just as much as he can be flat footed, he can make you miss and pay. To me, Bradley's style os awkward you just dont know if he's going to bring it or box it or even flurry his shots away no holds barred

If we talk about awkward...Bradley certainly does not come into mind first....or at all. I agree with MrFactor on that one. To me Augusts' style was the epitome of awkward....with Vic Darchinyan coming close second. But Bradley? He doesnt belong to the awkward league.....thank god.

The "Drunken Monkey" style from Augustus used crack me up!

Dunno why but Augustus always had me concerned. That guy looked like as if he dealt with some pretty serious demons in his life...and he probably did. I have never seen anyone caring so little about his own life in the ring. I mean..you have to be nuts to get into the ring to begin with...but Emanuel was something else.

Drunken Monkey in my opinion suits better to Darchinyan...

Bradley isn't awkward at all

Agustus, prince naseem, darchinyian, maybe martinez, those guys are pretty awkward when it comes to styles.

Right, it wasn't hard to tell that he may have had some stuff going on outside of the ring. I wonder what derailed his career, to the point where he started taking dives and pretty much accepting any fight that they put in front of him.

As awkward as Darchinyan's style is, I'd have to say that Augustus edges him with the Drunken Monkey style. Vic is just a lot tougher with his. Lol

Oh yeah, I dont see anything awkward about Bradley's style of fighting...somebody's gotta explain that one to me.
