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.
You are right and I threw tyson out there in the early going he was a slick raw brutal bastard in his day.
could you imagin Mayweather with Cus? **** I mean you dont have to have big power Cus could take those skills and make him an animal.. he has the ability to make you miss and make you pay, and Cus would optimise that talent and Floyd would likely get more knock outs.

Fernando Vargas pre Tito, was a bit on the slick side and a good boxer puncher, but he knew how to evade shots very well he had this corky ****ing headmovement sometimes and it just seemed to work
