    I read on some Famous Boxers
    like Rocky Maricano and Joe Frazier (they were swarmers)

    I know what boxers and Sluggers do

    but it's swarming that intrigues me, i read on boxing E-Documents, i don't quite understand it well,

    so what does boxing swarmers do?

    I believe it just means that they keep the punches coming from all angles and not allowing the other guy to get set.

    Its an endurance trait of a relentless and aggressive fighter.

    KickChick is correct! :)

    Another term for a swarmer is a 'crowder'.

    A swarmer is a boxer with non-stop aggression who likes to put pressure on his opponent. A swarmer is normally known for throwing more punches than a slugger which normal results in wearing the opponent down.

    Boxing: It's a style thing! is a good article which talks of the different boxer styles!
