Hopkins i've actually been stood by Calzaghe. I am taller. He is wider though without a doubt.

Weird question. Naturally bigger? What does that mean?

Is it Hopkins who is the tallest?

Roy who has fought as high as 200?

Or Calzaghe who walks around over 200?

imo all the fighters youve mentioned are all natural SMW's.

hopkins made the 160 limit through self discipline and sacrifice but imo he was always a SMW who worked really hard to get down to MW.

175 always looked a bit too much (physcially) for RJJ to wear but he always managed to get away with it because his reflexes and speed looked so much better.

calzaghe strained to make the SMW limit for a long time, his body in general is very big, he doesn't have the same amount of muscle as say RJJ but he has broad shoulders, a big waist and thick legs. even once he had stirpped his body of fat he looked he bigger and thickly set than hopkins and RJJ. vs RJJ in his last fight he weighed in bang on the limit and looking at him there its a wonder how he made 12st.

id say out of all of them calzaghe was the bigger man, then hopkins and then RJJ

interesting sidenote what about toney - what would you say his natural weight division was and was he a bigger man than calzaghe?
