who would take this? Physically who had the most nature talent, no boxing IQ here, just brawn. I mean look at Mayweather, he has freakishly long arms for his size, I wouldn't be surprised if his father didn't try some voodoo bullshit and quite literally stretch his arms as a baby. Then you have Tyson, who just had the body of a monster, he was quite literally built physically for boxing, although his hooks seem wide to me because of his physique, but hey he made it work so who am I to judge.

Usually with the advantages come the disadvantages.

Tyson had freaky power and explosiveness, but he was short and had poor reach.

Floyd does have freaky long arm and he is very athletic. But unfortunately for him, his hands are brittle which means he can't use what probably is a lot more power than what we are accustomed to seeing.

Leonard at 147. Boxer/puncher. Speed accuracy. Good defense. The total package.

Am I crazy when I say Marvelous Marvin Hagler amongst SRL, Money May and RJJr? That guy had speed, power, head made out of a granite, ideal body type for MW division...

Roy was super human in his prime. His reflexes speed and the power on his shots at that velocity were simply inhuman, and he could actually take a shot back in the day.

And SRR and young Mosley (Mosley was a god Damn animal back in the day). I've seen video of him sparring when he was a teen against full blown pros, this guy could just flat out fight. Fast power and a helluva chin.
