Muhammad Ali's style and methods were not unorthodox. They were fine tuned and almost flawless. Ali was ge greatest. I dint think there's will ever b anybody like him BUT.....
Look at manny pacquiao's foot work. A lot more subtle because of the footwork he is using. Think about it....where is he from?? What ethinicity is he?? FILIPINO!!
The footwork he is using is a male triangle. I would explain it but you can look it up itself
.....But it shows you how the techniques of Filipino Martial Arts can propel you above the competition
