I wish more trainers and fighters would come out and defend boxing the way Hunter and other trainers will. We have too many people polluting boxing with this "my fighter fights toe to toe" it is not boxing. And pundits saying that if a boxer can't knock anyone out then they are feathered fist and they aren't real boxers. WTF!

I agree with him, but you have to have a certain level of physical ability to pull off what Floyd does. Let's just look at arm-length. If Floyd didn't have freakishly long arms for his size, he wouldn't be the same fighter he is today. That's just 1 aspect of it.

There are multiple ways to skin a cat. You can be successful with all types of styles.

Yep...I bet Floyd's "once in a generation" athleticism and skill level has gotten many fighters' ass whipped in sparring, trying to emulate him. LOL.

And if Serena Williams did not have that ass and serve she wouldn't be as popular as she is. Can't knock a man for his God given gifts. I mean no one complains about Pacquiao's amazing calves.

Many greats have a physical attribute or something in their past others cant emulate. Michael Phelps and his hands and feet that are damn near like flippers. Jerry Rice growing up catching bricks his Dad tossed off roofs all summer.
