Train a guy to fight the way they did back then and put him in with a guy learning today's methods...you'll have an embarrassing match going on.
Boxing is a simple sport in many ways, but you cannot deny it has evolved form its early form...and it's evolved for a reason.
How much evolution can you claim to have observed in the sport? This "evolution" is an ignorance birthed out of a lack of knowledge of the sports history. Let me ask you, and all of the "new sport" type fella's Who invented the feint? when? were? Why did it go away for so long? and who brought it back? When you can answer those questions correctly you can tell me how the sports evolved.
The sport goes in circles. It's an ancient sport that goes back thousands of years with no gaps in its use. If you believe there's absolutely anything new you can bring to the sport than your delusional. Do you honestly watch Klitschko brothers or their unders and think " yeah man, over 2,000 years of building and progressing has led to this"? Without the slightest bit of logic hinting that it's all been done before? Figure out were the term fisticuffs comes from and you'll find a Klitschko again.
