A boxing style does not determine whether you'll be slick or not. Slickness stems from natural instincts, it's being gifted with great vision and reflexes.
Are y'all saying then that if Wifebeater was trained under the Cus D' Amato style that he won't be slick ?
Mike Tyson was a slick come forward fighter in his heyday. Of course, when you have to get in the trenches the chances of getting hit gets higher, it's just the nature of the beast.
A good determining factor on what type of style will be best for a particular is the jab. Fighters with terrific jabs end up being the boxer type, if you have no jab and you're short in stature then your options lessen.
Wifebeater is primarily looked at as a boxer. But, guess what, if he were to face a fighter who would have a significant height and reach advantage and had a great jab and moves well, Wifebeater would have no choice but to come forward.
