Default James Toney, gifted or a student? As well as other boxers

I was way too young to see Toney back in the days, but I've read that his style of fighting as well as a way he taught himself was I heard he would watch tons of tape of "old school" fighters. IE: Ezzard Charles

He would watch them, study them, and shadowbox in ways alike. Was he a student of the game, or gifted athlete?

Also how many great boxers weren't so athletically gifted as they were students of the game?

Boxers I would say were more student: Marquez, Malinaggi, Nicolino Locche, Bernard Hopkins

Hard to make a line of what boxers were more "student" than "gifted athlete" yes a lot of them are students, with gifts that helped them excel.

Can you name some boxers that weren't as so gifted as was their intuition to learn the craft?
