What are the benefits of having thick shoulders the way Floyd Jr does? His shoulders are thicker than the average boxers. It even looks like they were built up with some weights.

Nah he does it to take a punch better since he blocks punches with his shoulders. That and shoulders are one of the main muscles used in boxing so I supposed as he moved up in weight he wanted them stronger.

Joe Louis had them and gave him excellent muscular endurance and power.

Got them from lifting ice blocks up staircases when he was young.
