Anyways, there is one answer to your question, and his name is Sam Langford.
thought it was a bit dumb but i rekon all the great defencive fighters would do well, but they would really have to work hard being chased around the ring for 12 rounds. Someone like holyfield generally threw hooks and wasnt particulary fast, when i try to picture it i can see them outboxing him, toney was literally a fat middleweight. Im probably wrong here but although theres advantages to being heavier, theres also advantages for being smaller
